Murray being traded to Titans
DeMarco Murray’s time with the Philadelphia Eagles is over, as the team has elected to trade him to the Tennessee Titans on Monday.
Murray’s agent confirmed the trade which reportedly will alter Murray’s contract. It is unclear at the time what the Eagles will be getting back in return. Murray agreed to a 5-year, $40 million deal last season but struggled under Chip Kelly, rushing for just 702 yards and six touchdowns. In 2014, Murray rushed for a league-best 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns as a member of the Cowboys.
