Report: DeMarco Murray to be Traded to Titans

The NFL calendar year is going to kick off with a bang.

On Monday evening, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Titans, Eagles, and Murray’s agent had agreed to terms on a deal that would send the running back to Tennessee.

The terms of what Tennessee will have to give up and any other picks or players from the Eagles have yet to be disclosed, though Murray’s agency stated that a new contract will also be signed by Murray when he arrives in Tennessee.

The deal also will not become official until 4 p.m. New York time, when the league’s new calendar year starts, along with the free agency period.

The move of Murray, who had been unhappy with former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, comes off the heels of an earlier trade of linebacker Kiko Alonso and cornerback Byron Maxwell to the Miami Dolphins. All three men were acquisitions of Kelly when he had full roster control, and it seems to be newly reinstated General Manager Howie Roseman’s number one priority in removing from the team.

Murray’s career slacked in his one year with the Eagles, dropping to a career-low 702 rushing yards under Kelly’s offense.
