Darren McFadden time in Dallas looks to be coming to an end as the Cowboys are expected to allow him to hit the open market.
Darren McFadden signed a 2 year, $3,000,000 contract with the Dallas Cowboys, including a $200,000 signing bonus, $200,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $1,500,000.
In 2016, McFadden will earn a base salary of $1,250,000, a roster bonus of $93,750 and a incentive bonus of $300,000.
The 29-year old former round 1 draft choice (4th overall) showed the NFL in 2015 that he still has what it takes to get the job done.
McFadden rushed for 1,000-plus yards in 2015, but was restricted in 2016 due injury and the emergence of rookie sensation Ezekiel Elliott who led the league in rushing yard.
With Alfred Morris still have a year remaining on his contract, it seems that there’s no room for McFadden heading into the 2017-18 season.
McFadden could be a cheap option for NFL teams desperate a running back. Mcfadden asking price would be between $1-2 million per season. Not a bad price tag for a back that score over 1000 yards rushing in 2015.
