AP: Cowboys cut running back Adrian Murrell

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys on Friday cut running back Adrian Murrell, a little over three weeks after signing him.

Murrell, 33, had been out of the league for two years before signing Oct. 29. He had 28 rushes for 107 yards and looked impressive in the Cowboys' 10-6 victory over the Washington Redskins on Nov. 9. He had 16 carries for 76 yards in that game, including 46 yards in the fourth quarter while starter Troy Hambrick was on the sideline.

Murrell was signed by the Cowboys in training camp but was cut in August.

He looked good in his latest stint with the Cowboys, coach Bill Parcells said Wednesday.

"He was in pretty good condition, but we'll see," he said. "It's a week-to-week thing with these players. Some weeks you'll see them in a row and other weeks you don't see them in a row."

Murrell has 5,199 career yards on 1,375 carries with 23 touchdowns. He has played with the New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals and Washington Redskins and has had three 1,000-yard season.

Before signing with the Cowboys in the summer, he was working with his industrial engineering systems company in North Carolina.

Murrell was cut to make room on the roster for free-agent linebacker Jamal Brooks. Brooks played all 16 games for the Cowboys in 2001 but was on the injured reserve last season with a broken leg.

Reminds me of when we cut a bunch of inactives a few weeks ago in order to shake up the team. :rolleyes:

Yet Parcells is a master motivator. These moves were made to send a message.

However, when Spurrier does it, he is grasping at straws, he has no clue or our front office is incompetent.

What's the difference?

The media (and a lot of fans here) have a hard-on for Tuna.

Double-standard, hypocritical-whatever.

All the mediots can kiss my...

I don't know what everyone will think of it, but if Murrell will sign somewhat cheaply, why not sign him for the remainder of the season?

He's not a bad blocker, he's proven that he can get some quality yards. He might not start, but he couldn't hurt to be on the team.
