Recent reports indicate that the Eagles very interested in free agent running back DeMarco Murray. The interest seems to be mutual considering Murray reportedly called Chip Kelly to express his desire to play in Philadelphia.
Now some Eagles players are getting involved. Yesterday, safety Malcolm Jenkins sent out the following tweet:
I don't like the cowboys but I do like @DeMarcoMurray .... Come on over to the dark side bro! We'll treat you good!— Malcolm Jenkins (@MalcolmJenkins) March 10, 2015
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was none too pleased with this recruiting attempt.

And I'm talking about strictly football— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) March 10, 2015
Jenkins ignored Bryant's reply and instead pitched another attempt on Wednesday:
Jenkins isn't the only Eagles player involved. Newly acquired quarterback Sam Bradford is also getting in on the action. Bradford was Murray's teammate and roommate at the University of Oklahoma.
Sam Bradford said he’s actively trying to recruit DeMarco Murray to the Eagles.— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) March 11, 2015
Even Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff dropped a hint of interest in Murray.
