Running back Latavius Murray visiting Seattle

The Seahawks are bringing a running back in for a visit, but it’s not Adrian Peterson.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Raiders running back Latavius Murray will be paying them a visit.

Murray was solid for the Raiders last year, with 788 yards on 195 carries, but the Seahawks backfield was a weird mix of rookies and guys who got hurt.

If he leaves the Raiders, he also creates an opportunity there for Peterson, though the former Vikings back may have just been trying to hustle up a market when word got out about his interest in Oakland.

    Better than AP right now. Definitely more durable right now.

    More durable than Jamaal Charles too, but when both healthy not as good as Charles. It will be interesting to see if either of them get signed.

    Charles, Peterson and now Murray… Seattle is desperately trying to take the ball out of Wilson’s hands, they know they can’t win with him running the show. They had their best years when he threw the ball less than any QB in the league.

    He played on natural turf in Oakland. The artificial turf up in Seattle means higher risk of injury.

    LeGarrette Blount would be cheaper, has proven to be more durable, and is used to his role as not the lead guy.

    Looks like a seasoned, quality RB is in the cards for Seahawks in order if the right price is obtained. My choice would be go with the two youngsters already signed and put this money into the O-Line, instead.
