The Handoff: Cowboys' Running Backs Stealing All the Things

If you're around a Dallas Cowboys running back right now, keep a hand on your wallet.

Monday night, Big D's also-ran RB, Joseph Randle, was nicked for shoplifting in Frisco, Texas. Randle, who tried to pilfer some undies and a bottle of cologne from a Dillard's, was hit with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500.

The word from the Cowboys' camp Tuesday night was that Randle will be fined but not suspended. He has also been added to Jerry Jones' 'I Want To Party With That Guy' list.

Of course, Randle's light-fingered felony comes on the back of the heist DeMarco Murray pulled in Seattle on Sunday.

In a season where the Seahawks were giving up a paltry average of 62 rushing yards per game, Murray fleeced them for 115 yards and the game-sealing fifteen yard dagger in the fourth quarter.

Not content with that, he also pinched the 12 flag, stole the voice-boxes of the once-loudest crowd in the NFL, and made off with Russell Wilson's MVP credentials.

With that level of criminal culpability, it's tough to figure how Dallas has been usurped as America's Team.
