Description: Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones said the talks with free agent running back DeMarco Murray have been "slow", and he will hit the open market according to FOX Sports Southwest.
Insight: Murray and the Cowboys couldn't reach a long-term deal, and with the franchise tag going to wide receiver Dez Bryant, Dallas has no choice but to let Murray go. That doesn't mean the Cowboys are out of the running for re-signing Murray, but it will become harder. Murray is 27 years old and should go for the big pay day.
