The Cowboys’ new fullback, Tyler Clutts, played in Chicago one year with Matt Forte. He said DeMarco Murray and Forte are a lot alike.
“He’s very similar to Matt’s style of running, to me. Very smooth, very fluid. Sees holes well,” Clutts said Thursday after his first practice with the Cowboys. “Matt can do a lot, but so can DeMarco. Matt’s got some speed where he can get to the edge. We do, too, here. We can do all that.”
After one practice in the 37-degree cold, Clutts pronounced Murray and the Cowboys’ running game well-suited for the weather.
“Don’t worry about if it’s going to hurt or not afterwards,” he said of the key to playing in extreme cold. “It’s just really being efficient with it, not trying to do too much, being secure with the ball. Really, it’s just a matter of physicality: Who’s going to be more physical at the point of attack? It’ll definitely be the Cowboys.”
