Murray happy to bring Randle 'into the family,' says he's a quality running back from a school 'known for great running backs'

DeMarco Murray said he understands the Cowboys might want to use two running backs, but he’s used to that. He said he’s never been a “true starter,” either with the Cowboys or in college at Oklahoma.

“I’ve started, but Felix was always here, and things like that, so I’m excited for the new kid,” Murray said Wednesday at a charity event in Arlington.

The new kid is Joseph Randle, a running back from Oklahoma State drafted by the Cowboys in the fifth round two weeks ago.

“He’s definitely a quality running back from Oklahoma State – they’ve always been known for great running backs,” Murray said. “I’m excited to bring him in the family. Definitely, we’re going to get after it a little bit and help him out as much as we can.”

But Murray didn’t forget about two other running backs still on the roster.

“I’m excited for Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner, two great running backs,” he said. “Those guys have definitely worked hard and earned themselves a shot at playing time next year.”

Murray needs to stay healthy. Something he hasn't been able to do so far. Randle is insurance just in case.

Sorry, both Dunbar and Tanner won't make the team this year.
