DeMarco Murray had 2 good seasons for the Cowboys and 1 good season for the Titans and was very average the rest of his career.

9000 yards compared to Turner, SJax and Free's combined 8000 yards over the same period? At a fraction of the cap hit? We could have used him. Plus we would have had four other picks to use on a DLineman like Houston, Jordan or Wilkerson and an OLineman like Zeitler, Castonzo, Schwartz, Reiff, DeCastro or Osemele. Still would have had a couple fourth rounders and enough cap space to sign a decent enough WR to help us win a Bowl. Ornaments haven't won a ring in a decade. Troffed.

DeMarco Murray had more total yards because he played more games. OMG!! What a fascinating concept. 3 seasons with over 1000 yards rushing out of 7. 3 seasons with 702 or less rushing yards. 4 seasons with 6 or fewer rushing touchdowns. Also, I seem to remember him getting a mega deal from the Eagles only to be cut after 1 season. But he played for peanuts? Ok then.

Nope. Turner, SJax and Free started 15 more games for us than Murray started in his career from 2011-2017. He had 1,000 more yards than they combined for over that stretch. He made a grand total of $25.7M in his career while Dimi paid them $35.0M. Buddy was a mixture of Turner, SJax and Free with Teco's speed. Yall would have liked him. Troffed.
