The Texas Native who the DC should look at as a possibility.


I was happy to see the DC picked up Randle to help secure a bigger back, but is it enough to get us through the season? I would argue, no. Lance Dunbar and Kendial Lawrence are far to small to even think of them as a viable starting running back if Murray goes down again. And Phillip Tanner though he has the size is not someone any DC fan sees doing any better than Jones did last year when Murray went down. Randle is a rookie.

So who can we bring in to help us secure that second string running back position? Cedric Benson. Forget the Vince Young path, we need someone to challenge Murray for touches. Even Dez fights for catches! And look how it helped him. Murray has never had a threat to his number 1 spot other than his health. Nor has he had a vet come in and show him the ropes. Thats where Benson comes in.

Benson is 5'11 220 and recovering for a Lisfranc Injury last year with GB Packers. He signed with GB a 1 year 825,000. Why cant the cowboys do that? Sign him one year let him come in for goal line and third down giving Murray 1) a reason to step up his game 2) Giving him a break every now and then 3) giving the team a quality RB to flex.

Murray needs help or at least a swift kick in the ass. He has been feed nothing but sweet honey and wine since Day one and its time for a wake up call. Either Murray steps up or we know what we need to draft next year... a reliable back.
