While Murray is 30 years old and does have a history of being injured, he's still a solid player and could be a starting running back for another year or two. "He was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward".
In Murray's previous year with Dallas, he led the National Football League in rushing attempts (392), rushing yards (1,845), and rushing touchdowns (13) while helping the Cowboys reach the divisional round of the playoffs. He racked up over 1,800 rushing yards and over 400 receiving yards during the 2014 season en route to a Pro Bowl berth.
There is no dead money on Murray's contract and the Titans will save $6.25 million against the salary cap with the move, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Tennessee drafted his replacement shortly after signing Murray, picking Henry in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Henry, a former Heisman Trophy victor and second-round pick, had 156 yards rushing in a great comeback wild-card win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He caught 11 passes foe 136 yards and a TD. However, that would be his previous year with the Cowboys, moving onto the Philadelphia Eagles for one season before being dealt to the Titans.
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.
Tennessee's general manager thanked the three-time Pro Bowler for his contributions to the franchise. He'll make $8.5 million this year and is set to be a free agent in 2019 unless the Broncos hit him with the franchise tag.
The Washington Redskins could consider signing him. Last season he finished with 40 tackles, seven passes defended, one forced fumble and two interceptions.
