DeMarco Murray stepped off a private plane at 3:08 p.m. accompanied by his fiance and Marcus Sedberry, the Eagles' director of player engagement. An SUV waited for him on the runway to take him on a short drive to the team's practice facility -- a ride that was tracked by choppers overhead.
Murray is currently at the Eagles' facility where it's expected that if all goes well, he will sign with the Eagles. Murray has agreed to terms on a five-year deal that will pay him $42 million, including $21 million guaranteed. That would be a hefty salary for the Eagles to allocate to running back, but Murray is the NFL's defending rushing champion.
Murray, 27, rushed for 1,845 yards last season on 392 carries with the Dallas Cowboys. The former Oklahoma standout has been in the NFL for four seasons.
The Eagles have three running backs under contract: Darren Sproles, Matthew Tucker, and Kenjon Barner. Chris Polk is a restricted free agent and is expected to sign.
