Just hours after trading Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonso, the Philadelphia Eagles are continuing to clean the house by getting rid of running back DeMarco Murray.
A report has come out that the team has decided to trade Murray to the Tennessee Titans. The deal will reportedly be signed officially on Wednesday, but it looks like all systems are go.
The Eagles have been shopping Murray to teams for weeks now, and finally have found a buyer. It was obvious that Murray was not happy with the Eagles, and the Eagles obviously were not happy with Murray’s production.
With 193 carries for 702 yards (3.6 avg) and 6 TDs, Murray had one of the worst years of his career. The Eagles were partially at fault here, as former head coach Chip Kelly was not able to use Murray accordingly.
Onto the Titans side of things, this addition of Murray is great for the franchise. The Titans ranked 25th in rushing yards per game last season with 92.8.
Up and coming quarterback Marcus Mariota should be happy about this move, considering that he felt a lot of heat lot season. Having a veteran running back like Murray will finally allow Mariota to dump the ball once in awhile.
