Murray in Need of Fresh Start

The 27-year-old rusher is coming off arguably the worst season of his career. He racked up just 702 yards and six touchdowns on the ground in 15 games during his first year in Philadelphia after four seasons with the Cowboys, including a 1,845-yard campaign in 2014.

Murray signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Eagles before last season. He's scheduled to count $35 million over the remaining four years, including $8 million for 2016, according to Spotrac. It remains to be seen how the Titans plan to restructure his contact. 

The Titans are hoping Murray can return to his 2014 form and beef up an offense that revolves around quarterback Marcus Mariota.
