Murray is set to join the Saints on a four-year, $14.4 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The contract suggests Mark Ingram priced himself out of the Saints' comfort zone, forcing the team to assess external options to pair with Alvin Kamara in the backfield. It's hard to sell this as anything but a downgrade from the team's perspective, but it does appear to be a decent outcome for Murray, who will now take on a complementary role in an excellent offense. Ingram averaged 11.5 carries and 2.3 targets per game in 2018, with seven touchdowns in 12 appearances. It's reasonable to expect a similar workload for Murray in 2019. Mar 12 12:21 pm (EST)
- Murray is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March and is hoping for the opportunity to compete for a starting job, Andrew Krammer of The Star Tribune reports. "I want to start. I'm not content with being in a backup role," Murray said Monday. "I want to compete, and Dalvin [Cook] knows that. We push each other. That's what it's about. But I would love to be back here for that opportunity to compete."
- Murray ran for 22 yards on nine carries and added two catches for six yards during Sunday's 27-9 win over Detroit.
- Murray rushed 15 times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 win over Miami. He wasn't targeted in the passing game. All Latavius Murray News
