Titans Will Cut DeMarco Murray

Titans Will Cut DeMarco Murray

After spending two years in Nashville, DeMarco Murray is moving on. The Giants now have approximately $6.74 million in cap space, following Wednesday's trade for linebacker Alec Ogletree. Titans general manager Jon Robinson says Murray "was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward".

Following a disappointing stint in Philly, the Titans were able to acquire Murray via trade.

They kept three active at a time with Murray, Derrick Henry, David Fluellen and Khalfani Muhammad all seeing time on the 53-man roster, but Murray and Henry accounted for 360 of the 364 carries by Titans running backs. He managed just 659 yards and six scores on 184 attempts for a lowly 3.6 yards-per-attempt average - also tied for the worst in his career.

Over 15 games, Murray turned 223 touches into 925 total yards and 7 touchdowns in 2017.

Thomas wrote that federal rules of procedure anticipate defendants will sometimes face burdensome litigation. A three-judge panel rejected the government's petition for writ of mandamus that sought to undo.

Murray will be entering his eighth season in the league and likely still has some gas in the tank. In 2015, he won the Heisman Trophy as he set SEC single-season records for rushing yards and touchdowns for Alabama's CFP national-championship team.

"He is a bigger back as we all know, and has good speed in the open field", Robinson said at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official website. Towards the end of the season, Derrick Henry started to improve and looked like the long-term starter for the Titans. "He is a guy who can get downhill, and he has the ability to pick and slide and get up in a crease".

If the price is right, the Giants could do far worse than signing Murray to a short-term deal, which would also make the position far less of a priority both during the NFL Draft and when the spending spree of free agency begins next week.
