The Titans are finalizing a trade for Eagles running back DeMarco Murray, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday.
Murray’s representation at Sports Trust Advisors confirmed the trade via Twitter, saying Murray will get a new contract from the Titans.
The Eagles spent Monday paving the way for the organization to rid itself of ex-coach Chip Kelly’s players. A deal was also set up that will send linebacker Kiko Alonso and cornerback Byron Maxwell to the Dolphins.
Trades can officially be made Wednesday, the first day of the league year.
Murray signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Eagles last year after he led the NFL in rushing with the Cowboys in 2014. A year after rushing for 1,845 yards, he ran for 713 yards last season with the Eagles.
Murray, who just turned 28, was a third-round pick of the Cowboys in 2011. With the Titans he’ll presumably be atop the depth chart in front of young running backs Antonio Andrews and David Cobb.
