NFL scout: DeMarco Murray doesn't fit Eagles offense

Eagles running back DeMarco Murray's two-week stat line of 21 attempts for 11 yards and a touchdown has some around the league wondering whether the five-year, $40 million free-agent acquisition aligns properly with coach Chip Kelly's offensive philosophy.

"What stands out to me about that offense is their inability to run the ball," an AFC scout told "DeMarco Murray doesn't fit that offense. He's a downhill, one-cut runner. That offense attacks you horizontally and in space. DeMarco doesn't want to go east and west. He wants to square his shoulders to the line of scrimmage and hit it."

Compounding the problem is the Eagles' offensive line is still trying to find cohesion.

Keep an eye on how Murray fares this week against the Jets, a team that's allowing opposing running backs only 2.6 yards a carry.
