DeMarco Murray heading for free agency as Tennessee Titans release running back

March 9, 2018

Murray had just 659 rushing yards in 15 games before an injury ended his season.

Appearing in all 16 games, Murray racked up 1,664 yards and 12 touchdowns from scrimmage while posting a respectable 4.4 yards per carry. Titans general manager Jon Robinson says Murray "was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward".

Original story, February 28: Ever since leaving the Dallas Cowboys after a career year in 2014, DeMarco Murray has been a feast-or-famine type of player.

Murray has two years of non-guaranteed money left on his contract, which was restructured after he was acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles in a 2016 trade. Baker played with Tampa Bay last season after spending six seasons with Washington and one each with Miami and Denver. The Giants now have approximately $6.74 million in cap space, following Wednesday's trade for linebacker Alec Ogletree.

With news that the Titans will release DeMarco Murray, Henry is in line to head the Titans' backfield in 2018.

Because Murray was released by the Titans, he is free to sign with any other team immediately, and does not have to wait until free agency and the new league year begins on March 14.

It wasn't long ago that Murray was one of the top backs in the NFL.

"I feel very confident in myself".

While it's possible Murray was simply rendered ineffective because of the injuries, his previous injury history, his upcoming cap number and the fact that he just turned 30 all likely played a role in his release.

Murray could hold down the fort in conjunction with Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine and if the team doesn't see a lot of development from the latter-most player, they could then target a game changer in future drafts.

Experts say Murray is headed for a pay cut this season one way or another. Morris is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
