Free agent running back DeMarco Murray continues to make the rounds, looking for a new home.

Murray will visit the Dolphins on Sunday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. The Dolphins are in search of a running back to pair with Kenyan Drake.

Murray visited the Lions, but they signed veteran running back LeGarrette Blount on Friday. He also had a trip to Seattle last week.

The Titans released Murray to save $6.5 million in cap space. He led the league in rushing with 1,845 yards in 2014 with the Cowboys, but Murray has only one 1,000-yard season since.

He rushed for 659 yards and six touchdowns last season, his second with the Titans.

  1. Hopefully he’s coming in as a compliment to Drake. Drake showed HUGE potential last season and Miami needs to give him the reigns. I understand Gase doesn’t want a “workhorse” back, but they need to find out if Drake is the future. Based off his play once he was the starter, I’d say he’s got a good shot to be.

    Drake is the most promising RB they’ve had in a while.

  2. He got shut down last year by Miami. Then proceeded to talk trash all game and all the extra stuff that happens at the whistle. Don’t sign this tool.

  3. Miller was good but he went down as soon as he was touched and he’s not having much success in Houston. Ajayi had 4 good games out of 16 and every Miami fan knows his knee is a ticking time bomb.

    Drake has shown the explosiveness and speed of Miller and the power of Ajayi and he catches the ball better than both.

    Dallas wore Murray out in 1 season!

    That o-line blew open holes so big he rarely took hard hits. Then he cut and ran for the money. Which in the long term probably cost him money.

  5. I am surprised the Hawks let him get out of SEA without a contract, SEA has by far the worst rushing game in the NFL w/ ZERO talented RB’s on their payroll and a horrid offensive line in front to block for said backs. They needed to sign a veteran like Murray or Blount and draft a guy, but they bungled free agency.

  6. Not a bad location to soak up some vitamin D while collecting a few million for 10 carries and 28 yards a game

  7. Yeah, he’s declined, but people were celebrating a guy who averaged 2-point-something yards per carry for several years getting signed somewhere. Another guy who hasn’t come close to 1000 yards ever got a huge deal and a few others got signed with low production.
