Rex Grossman is likely to return and such players as Matt Hasselbeck, Vince Young, and Marc Bulger could be targeted. Every day that goes by with the lockout in place will make it more and more difficult for a quarterback brought in from the outside to take the starting job, at least early in the year.While Hasselbeck has never been a lock to find his way to the Valley, it has been believed that Marc Bulger was almost a foregone conclusion. With Washington’s interest and possibly a team like Miami, who’s looking for veteran competition for Chad Henne, interested in the former Rams starter what once was looked at as a cheap solution for the Cards could get pricey.

However, the Cowboys let the NFL’s rushing leader, DeMarco Murray, leave for the Philadelphia Eagles because they did not want to meet his contract demands. Murray signed a five-year, $42 million deal, with $18 million guaranteed.Peterson’s current contract calls for him to carry cap numbers of $15.4 million in 2015, $15 million in 2016 and $17 million in 2017, and while most believe any trade will involve him restructuring that deal, he still figures to earn a significant amount of money. And, given that the Cowboys were reluctant to pay Murray, who led the NFL in rushing last season, you have to wonder just how much they’d be willing to spend on Peterson.If nothing else, with the NFL Draft getting closer, you would have to think a resolution to the Peterson situation — be it him going back to the Vikings, sitting out or getting traded — is on the way.
