Latavius Murray to visit Jacksonville, Seattle

Free agent running back Latavius Murray will visit the Jaguars Monday and the Seahawks Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Murray has been the Raiders’ primary running back over the last two seasons, but he shared more of the load last year and the Raiders appear ready to let him move on. He’s averaged 4.0 yards per carry in each of the last two seasons after averaging 5.2 in limited work in 2014.

Murray, 27, ran for 12 touchdowns last season and has 20 over the last three seasons.

Seattle’s interest in Murray was previously reported, but no date for a visit was announced. The Seahawks already have a crowded backfield, but Murray might enter camp as the No. 1 runner if he ends up with the Jaguars.

    Noooooooooooooo Seattle, divert that plane.

    No way he makes it on a plane to Seattle. Jaguars have a dire need there. And he will get paid a boatload. I still would prefer Leonard Fournette but Murray is probably the better player for next Yesr.

    Seattle should get a pro level OL first before getting another RB.

    I hope the Jags sign him, no need to waste the 4th pick on a rb. Allen baby, get that DT.

    both of these teams have really bad o-lines.

    murray will find little room to run.

    but at least the jaguars aren’t trying to convert backup basketball players to linemen, like seattle is.

    Hey Murray, if Jacksonville offers you a contract, make sure you put a clause in there that demands they change their helmets back to the old one.

    If he wants to win he’ll go to Seattle.

    If he wants to get paid he’ll go to Florida where he could save millions on his contract From taxes.

    Seattle will get a pro bowl OL in TJ Lang from GB. Book it.

    I am somewhat surprised there is not more interest from other teams the guy seems like a really solid running back.

    I think the Raiders would be making a bigger effort than it appears to resign him, would appreciate some input from Raider fans telling us why they are not.
