Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray restructured his contract ahead of the deadline Friday, when he would've been guaranteed $5.15 million. Murray ran for 842 yards and eight touchdowns for the Vikes last season, but he saw more work than expected when rookie Dalvin Cook blew out his knee early in the year. With Cook expected back healthy in 2018 in the lead role, Murray will be unlikely to put up those kind of numbers again. He'll mostly be a short-yardage, touchdown-dependent fantasy back.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray has agreed to restructure his contract and will remain with the team, according to sources.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray could be released if he does not agree to restructure his contract. His $5.15 million salary for 2018 will become guaranteed if he is on the roster Friday, March 16.
Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray totaled only 29 all-purpose yards as the Vikings were bounced from the playoffs by the Eagles 38-7. Murray saw only six carries in the game for 18 yards, his lowest carry total since September 24th. Turnovers really took the Vikings out of their game plan and Murray never had a chance to get going. Murray came on slowly this season and never got a true opportunity until rookie standout Dalvin Cook tore his ACL. Once given the chance, Murray put up eight rushing touchdowns, 842 yards and had eight games of 68 rushing yards or more. Murray may struggle to repeat those numbers next year with Cook re-entering the mix but certainly has helped his value heading into the offseason.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed six times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.
