Apparently, DeMarco Murray’s removal of the Cowboys from his Twitter profile wasn’t the product of a butt dial.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Murray hasn’t heard from the Cowboys since last week. While Schefter doesn’t specifically report that’s the reason for the change in Murray social media page, it’s implied.

It’s unclear why Murray would expect to hear from the Cowboys. The three-day negotiating window is intended to give players a chance to determine their market value, which in turn gives them a chance to take those offers back to their original teams.

If Murray’s agent has been calling the Cowboys and getting snubbed, that’s a different story. But if the Cowboys are simply hoping to retain leverage by not making the first call now that Murray is in position to attract offers, it’s not unreasonable that they haven’t been in touch.

Then again, the explanation doesn’t matter. Murray apparently is miffed, which could mean the Cowboys won’t get the chance they assumed they’d have to match or come close to whatever Murray has found from one or more of the other 31 franchises.
