Everyone’s Making The Same Suggestion For Latavius Murray After Release


The New Orleans Saints are reportedly releasing backup running back Latavius Murray after he refused a proposed pay reduction on Monday, per ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Murray is coming off his best season in recent years, logging 656 yards and four touchdowns on 146 carries and 176 yards and one touchdown on 23 receptions. Now hitting the market as a free agent, plenty of teams will like show interest in the former Pro-Bowl RB.

One team in particular is already sticking out as the perceived frontrunner to land Murray.

Fans and analysts from around the league are dubbing the Baltimore Ravens as the running back’s future squad.

With season-ending injuries to both J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill, the Ravens, who led the NFL in rushing over the past two seasons, are currently running scarce at the running back position. As of right now, fourth-year Baltimore running back Gus Edwards will lead the way followed by second-year pro Ty’Son Williams.

Without Murray on the squad, the Saints will now turn to undrafted second-year running back Tony Jones Jr. as a backup behind Alvin Kamara. The former Notre Dame standout spent most of the 2020 season on the New Orleans practice roster.

Murray, 31, is heading into his eighth NFL season.
