06:38 PM ET 10.28 | They say that we are currently sitting in a seller's market in the NFL when it comes to the running back position, with few teams around the league looking to bolster their backfield. However, there were recently rumors that the Dallas Cowboys were losing faith in DeMarco Murray as a starting running back, so they could be looking to add at that position. Among the available running backs heading in to tomorrow afternoon's trade deadline are Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams, Detroit Lions back up Mikel Leshoure and former first-round pick Mark Ingram of the New Orleans Saints. One other guy that has not been mentioned is Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract. The Cowboys had some serious interest in McFadden when he was set to enter the NFL Draft out of Arkansas, but they didn't have the ammunition to trade up and land him early in the first-round. Instead, Dallas settled for McFadden's teammate, Felix Jones, which never worked out. Now that McFadden is on the block and the Cowboys reportedly would like to add at running back, could this be a match made in heaven?

Something tells me that the trade deadline is going to pass tomorrow with hardly a whimper.

Yeah, but I think JJ's Razorback man crush problem only kicks in when Arkansas players are first drafted into the NFL. McFadden left Arkansas the same year Felix Jones did and JJ just cut Jones.

And what kind of fool would you have to be anyway to fix the DeMarco Murray injury situation by replacing it with the Darren McFadden injury watch?

The most injury prone RB in the NFL should fit right into the scheme.

How about targeting a whole new coaching staff right after their season is over???

Do the idiots at FanSided even have the slightest inkling about the salary cap?

NOPE...they just throw sh&t against the wall to see what sticks, and usually none of it does.

To us it doesn't. To JJ.....

Darren Mcffadden is the poster boy for the NFL walking injured.

October 29, 2013  09:25 AM ET

So many problems here with the idea, the post, the reality (or lack thereof) of it, Jerry's lack of football acumen....all been stated above....nothing I could add.

October 29, 2013  09:41 AM ET

i'll second a new coaching staff. and dallas needs to replace murray..... he's a 10-12 week back per season at best, just like his days in college.

Between Jones and McFadden, two of the most fragile guys ever, how did Arkansas ever have a backfield?
