Titans Set to Trade For Running Back DeMarco Murray
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A person familiar with the deal says the Tennessee Titans agreed to acquire DeMarco Murray in a trade with Philadelphia, trying to land the running back threat they’ve lacked since releasing Chris Johnson.
Murray also agreed to rework the five-year, $40 million contract with $21 million guaranteed he signed with Philadelphia last year, the person told The Associated Press on Monday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal will not be announced until Wednesday.
Murray led the NFL in rushing for 1,845 yards with 13 touchdowns in Dallas in 2014 and was the NFL Offensive Player of the Year. He only ran for 702 yards with the Eagles last season.
ESPN first reported the trade.
