|Murray to still carry the load for Titans -- Mon May 2 8:30 am --|
Head coach calls RB after Derrick Henry pick
|“You know, I talked with DeMarco Murray not long after we made the pick,” Mularkey said, assuring the running back that he remained among the team’s prized offseason acquisitions, and that he’d be heavily involved in the team’s game plan each week. “I told DeMarco, look, nothing has changed since we made the trade for you,” he said. “You’re still the guy that’s going to carry the load for us. When you need to take a break and come off the field there will be no letdown from the next one that comes in, whoever that is. (The Tennessean)|
FF Today's Take: The Titans have struggled to find a running game in recent years with Bishop Sankey and David Cobb both failing to make an impact. Taking the coach at his word it sounds like rookie Derrick Henry will be in a clear backup role and Murray is at least playing nice with his comments. Henry should be viewed a handcuff to Murray.
|DeMarco Murray headed to Tennessee -- Mon Mar 7 6:00 pm --|
Trade expected to be complete Wednesday

FF Today's Take: To say the Eagles are cleaning the Chip Kelly house might be an understatement. In addition to Murray, it appears LB Kiko Alonso and CB Byron Maxwell will be sent to Miami once transactions are allowed to made Wednesday afternoon. All three players were acquisitions made by Chip Kelly last season. Murray will give the Titans a legitimate veteran running back after trying their luck with Bishop Sankey and David Cobb the last two seasons. Murray is 28 years old and while he took a step back in 2015, he may actually find himself in a better situation if Tennessee can succeed in improving it's offensive line.
|Murray, Mathews available for trade -- Mon Mar 7 1:47 pm --|
Eagles shopping their running backs

FF Today's Take: Getting a deal done for Murray would be difficult given his contract situation. Murray is guaranteed to make $7 million this season and most franchises prefer to go young and cheap at the position. Mathews is the better candidate of the two to be traded.
