The top running back on the market is headed to the city of brotherly love. DeMarco Murray will be staying in the NFC East as he will go to the Philadelphia Eagles on five year deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Muray will get over 20 million in guaranteed money on the contract. Murray also called Chip Kelly on Wednesday, and it looks like the two side agreed on a deal.
DeMarco Murray's deal with Eagles is expected to be 5 years, $42 million, including $21 million guaranteed, per @mortreport and I.

Murray, who was the NFL’s rushing champion last season, rushed for 1,845 yards on 392 rushing attempts with 13 touchdowns. Those were all career highs for Murray. With LeSean McCoy now in Buffalo and the Eagles getting Murray along with Kiko Alonso as a result of trading one player, it looks like Chip Kelly is “winning” in my Charlie Sheen voice.
