Murray is only 30 and will probably find a new employer by the time training camps open. It wasnít that long ago (2014, to be exact that Murray was the highest-scoring running back in fantasy football, rushing for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns with the Cowboys. It was only two years ago that he ran for 1,287 yards and nine touchdowns in his first season with the Titans. Murray has a career average of 4.5 yards per carry and has always been an able pass catcher.
Released by the Titans in early March, Murray received only tepid interest in the spring, making a handful of team visits but failing to secure a new deal. Murrayís 659 rushing yards last season represented a career low, and he simply didnít look like vintage DeMarco Murray. Heís logged a lot of NFL mileage, with 1,604 career carries in the regular season, and the tank might be close to empty.
The landing spot will obviously make a big difference, but whichever team signs Murray, it probably isnít going to view him as a full-time player. We arenít ready to write off Murray just yet, but itís possible that heís hit the wall.
