This shit keeps popping up ... Murray wants to go back to Dallas. If this is true, he's a malcontent greedy muthafuka. Get him to renegotiate his deal to make him tradable and send him to whoever will take him. Think he'd bring a #4?

It is the same guy who said it before and it falls into the same category appropriately named "Who Cares?"

Where does he get the idea we want him? (outside of tweets by a certain wide receiver who was not hired for his brain power) He's nearing thirty and has a godawful history of either missing time or mediocre play due to injury. He is only a name due to one...precisely one...excellent year.

FWIW, Murray sent out a tweet yesterday saying don't believe it.

I wonder if a player wanted out of a city so bad, if he could sign a new contract at a lower rate and then get traded. It would reduce the cap hit and make him easier to trade. That would seem to be a dumb business move, but QB's have done that to stay in a town, why not do it to leave?

If he waits a year, he'll have that chance next year when the cap hit comes down.

Other way to trade is to trade for an over priced player on the other team that they would like to get rid of.

Dumb question time, but how can the cap hit be reduced?

Presumably the cap hit for trading him is the remaining signing bonus not charged against the year one cap, so we're on the hook for all of that money immediately he's traded. We could make the trade in June when the hit is split between this year and next, but does that apply to trades or only to cuts?
