Titans running back DeMarco Murray got what he wanted — a ticket out of Philly. But he’s taking the high road when asked about what went wrong there.
“Things didn’t work out,” Murray said during a Thursday appearance on 102.5 The Game in Nashville, via Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. “I look in the mirror and don’t blame anyone. I take full responsibility of it. I just try to move on and work hard and try to make the best of the opportunity I’m given.”
Murray wouldn’t say there was a problem with the relationship. Instead, Murray said things simply didn’t work out.
“I wouldn’t say I was in the wrong relationship at all,” Murray said. “They have a great team there, great owner in Jeffrey [Lurie]. Howie [Roseman] and Jeff, they do a great job. They know what they want in the team, personnel wise,” Murray said. “It was just a relationship that didn’t work, for whatever reason. I’m not going to go into the details of that. I have a really good relationship with those guys.”
In mentioning “those guys,” Murray didn’t mention former coach Chip Kelly, the one guy with whom Murray reportedly had the most problems.
Still, with Murray getting a fresh start and a revised deal in Tennessee, he gains nothing by saying negative things about anyone in Philly. Both sides realized it made sense to move on — and Murray is wise to not look back.
