3-Time Pro Bowl RB DeMarco Murray Released

Murray wasn't able to produce much in a limited role, rushing for 659 yards and six touchdowns on a paltry 3.6 yards per carry.

The Titans announced their intentions Thursday, when general manager Jon Robinson said in a statement that Murray "was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward".

Murray, 30, dealt with a knee injury late in the year and missed the Titans' final regular-season game and two playoff contests. However, Murray was a more productive receiver in 2017, catching 39 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown. He had just two starts last season, but in rotational work averaged 4.2 yards per carry, gained 744 yards and scored five touchdowns.

During his second season, Henry became the first player in National Football League history to have TD runs of at least 72 yards in the final minute of two games. He racked up over 1,800 rushing yards and over 400 receiving yards during the 2014 season en route to a Pro Bowl berth.

Last season, Murray wasn't quite as prolific.

Defense should once again be the primary focus for the Raiders this offseason, but that doesn't negate the need for the team to flesh out the running back position either in the draft or in free agency.

He was scheduled to make $6.5 million in the 2018 season, and releasing him clears $6.5 million of cap space.

Harris has started 93 games for the Broncos since they signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas.

"He is a bigger back as we all know, and has good speed in the open field", Robinson said at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official website.
