Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) declined an invitation to work out for the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. Murray preferred not to work out with a large group of running backs.
Free-agent running back DeMarco Murray declined a workout invitation with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. He is still waiting for the right opportunity, but he may have to wait until training camp to sign with a team. Murray battled nagging injuries with the Titans last year and had a career-low 3.6 yards per carry on 184 attempts. There's not much left in his legs, and even if he signs somewhere for 2018, he's unlikely to have a prominent role.
Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins without an agreement Monday, March 19.
Free-agent running back DeMarco Murray will visit with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Murray had a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and six rushing touchdowns last year with the Titans in 15 games, and nagging injuries continued to wear him down and make him less effective. It's fair to wonder how much the veteran back will have heading into his age-30 season. If he lands in Miami, he'd likely play second fiddle to Kenyan Drake, making him nothing more than a weak RB3/flex choice.
Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) will visit with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, March 18.
The Miami Dolphins have asked about free-agent running back DeMarco Murray, according to a source. However, it is unclear if there is a visit lined up. The aging Murray appears to be on his last legs in the NFL after racking up the yardage earlier in his career with Dallas. In 2017 with Tennessee, Murray had a career-low 3.6 yards per carry on 184 attempts and struggled with nagging injuries throughout the year. In Miami, he'd likely help spell Kenyan Drake but probably wouldn't be anything more than a weak RB3/flex choice.
Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) has received some interest from the Miami Dolphins, but it is not known if a visit has been scheduled, according to a source.
Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, March 14.
Free-agent running back DeMarco Murray is scheduled to visit with the Seattle Seahawks this week, according to a source. Murray limped to the finish line last year with Tennessee and gave way to the younger and more effective Derrick Henry late in the season. The veteran Murray had 184 carries for just 659 yards (career-low 3.6 yards per carry) and six touchdowns in 2017, and he's unlikely to be a lead back again, even for a team like Seattle in desperate need for running back help. Murray, at best, could serve as an RB3/flex type in deeper leagues.
Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) will reportedly visit the Seattle Seahawks this week, assuming the Detroit Lions don't sign him during his visit Tuesday, March 13.
Free agent running back DeMarco Murray will visit the Lions on Monday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. It will be Murray's first visit since being released by the Titans on Thursday, as Murray may be trying to get a jump on the market. Murray would be wise to try and land a contract before Wednesday when the official signing period opens and other more talented backs become available. Murray did not appear to have much left in his breaking-down body in 2017 as he battled numerous lower-body injuries and he turned 30 last month.
Free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Titans) is scheduled to visit with the Detroit Lions Monday, March 12, according to a source.
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray was released Thursday, March 8.
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray will be released, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com. "I want to thank DeMarco for his contributions as a Titan, not only for what he did on the field but also in the locker room and in the community," Titans general manager Jon Robinson said in a statement. "He was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward." Murray, who joined the Titans prior to the 2016 season, ran for 659 yards and six touchdowns last season on 184 carries in 2017. Derrick Henry led the Titans with 774 yards and five touchdowns on 176 carries. The former Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Alabama also caught 11 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown. Henry looks to be a top-15 (and potentially top-10) RB leading into 2018.
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray could be an option for the Detroit Lions if the Titans release him this offseason, in the opinion of The Detroit News' Justin Rogers.
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray was ineffective throughout 2017 and ESPN Titans reporter Cameron Wolfe predicts Tennessee will release Murray this offseason. It is a logical -- and expected -- move that will save the Titans $6.5 million against the cap in 2018. Murray was great in 2016, but battled injuries all of 2017, missed the playoffs, and turns 30 next week. Derrick Henry will then be freed up as the unquestioned lead back, while the Titans can add a third-down, pass-catching type to complement him under new OC Matt LaFleur.
Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray said he believes he is 'definitely' still a top-end feature back. 'I am very confident in myself and I am excited,' he said. 'I am excited about the future, and my future. I know what kind of player I am.' He added that he 'probably' would have been able to return from injury in the next game had the Titans not lost their Divisional Round playoff affair Saturday, Jan. 13, against the New England Patriots. Murray also mentioned that he envisioned returning to the team next season.
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray is hoping to bounce back in 2018 after dealing with several injuries and a down season in 2017. "I am very confident in myself and I am excited," Murray said. "I am excited about the future, and my future. I know what kind of player I am." Murray missed the regular season finale and both of the team's playoff games with a knee injury, but he hadn't missed a game before that since joining them before the 2016 season. On the season as a whole, he ran 184 times for 659 yards, and backup Derrick Henry was more productive over the course of the year. It was especially clear down the stretch and into the postseason that Henry is the present and future for the Titans backfield. If Murray does return in 2018, he'll likely take on a much smaller role and work as more of Henry's backup, instead of vice-versa like this season.
The Tennessee Titans have declared QB Brandon Weeden, OG Corey Levin, CB Curtis Riley, DL David King, RB DeMarco Murray, LB Josh Carraway, RB Khalfani Muhammad inactive for Week 19.
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray is dealing with an injury and ESPN's Cameron Wolfe believes there's a "decent chance" that he has played his final snap in a Titans uniform. Already ruled out for the Divisional Round, Murray, who has a torn MCL, would be a long-shot for the AFC Championship Game even if the Titans sprang a seismic upset on Saturday night. One month shy of his 30th birthday, Murray slumped to a career-worst 3.58 yards per carry as he played injured in 2017. 23-year-old sophomore Derrick Henry has looked more than capable of taking over the Titans' workhorse role. If Murray is cut, his entire $6.5 million salary would come off the books, leaving behind no dead money.
