A person familiar with the meeting says All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray will visit the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday night because the Eagles haven’t announced the visit. Philadelphia agreed to a three-year contract with running back Ryan Mathews earlier in the day, according to two people with knowledge of the deal.
It’s a no-lose situation for the Eagles. If they don’t get Murray, they’re helping drive up his price for the rival Dallas Cowboys.
Murray helped the Cowboys win the NFC East title last season while rushing for a franchise-record 1,845 yards. He broke the Dallas record held by NFL career rushing leader Emmitt Smith and also set a league mark with eight straight 100-yard games to start the season.
