DeMarco Murray had the perfect response to Joseph Randle's silly comment

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle made headlines on Wednesday evening following comments he made about former teammate DeMarco Murray. Randle said Murray, who rushed for a league-leading 1845 yards in 2014, left "a lot of meat on the bone" in terms of leaving yards on the field.

Murray had a chance to respond to those comments on Thursday when he was made available to the media for the first time since the Eagles signed him. Instead of being bitter, Murray took the high road and made a simple joke.

"Hopefully [Randle] can taste some of that meat this year," he said.

Nice.

But Murray wasn't the only one who got in a good joke at Randle's expense. This was the final question and answer of Chip Kelly's pre-practice press conference on Thursday:

"Q. Yesterday, a Dallas Cowboy running back said that RB DeMarco Murray left a lot of yardage out on the field last year. Do you agree with that?

COACH KELLY:  I think he said, ‘he left a lot of meat on the bone.’  So maybe that means he's not a big eater."

Boom.
