Titans to acquire Murray: source


The Tennessee Titans have agreed to acquire DeMarco Murray in a trade with Philadelphia in looking for the running back threat they’ve lacked since releasing Chris Johnson, according to a person familiar with the deal.

Murray also agreed to rework the five-year, $40 million contract with $21 million guaranteed he signed with Philadelphia last year, the person told The Associated Press on Monday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal will not be announced until Wednesday.

Murray led the NFL in rushing for 1,845 yards with 13 touchdowns in Dallas in 2014 and was the NFL Offensive Player of the Year.
