Saints News, 9/26/14: Saints Have Great Respect For DeMarco Murray

Mike Triplett has an article that quotes Coach Payton and several Saints players as they discuss Cowboys RB and current NFL leading rusher DeMarco Murray. Curtis Lofton said, "Oh, he’s very special, in how he can run the ball and plus how he catches the ball. Coming to Oklahoma, I took him on his recruiting trip, so we’ve been pretty close for years. And when Adrian [Peterson] was there, he was on the scout team, so he had the duty of getting us ready to play. And we used to hate it because he gave us fits all week. Now, he’s really matured into one of the top backs in this league. He’s one of those guys that can bounce it in and out, cuts back, has great speed, can go the distance. So it’s gonna take a group effort to get him down and get to him.”
