The DeMarco Murray to Dallas rumors picked up before this year's trade deadline, primarily due to Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. Murray heard them, and understood them, but he's still the Titans' starting running back and he plans it to remain that way for the rest of his career.

"That was all speculation by social media fans and obviously, people talking about the whole Dallas deal," said Murray, who was acquired by the Titans in a March 2016 trade with the Philadelphia Eagles "I'm happy here. They're happy to have me here. I've been fortunate to be a part of the Titans organizations for the last two years and I see myself retiring here and being an asset here moving forward."

Fans began speculating about a Murray to Dallas trade after Ed Werder tweeted that Murray "heard rumblings" that he could be traded and noted his connection to Dallas.

"That's been circulating every year since I left there," Murray said to the 'rumblings' report. "The chances of me going back there is probably closer to Roger Staubach coming back and playing for them."

Murray said it wouldn't have been bad to take a handoff from Staubach, who retired from the NFL in 1980, eight years before Murray was born, but he enjoys taking handoffs from Marcus Mariota a little more.
