Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - SPORTS -

DeMarco Murray is re­tir­ing from the NFL. The 2014 Of­fen­sive Player of the Year made the an­nounce­ment Fri­day on ESPN, four months af­ter be­ing re­leased by the Ten­nessee Ti­tans. Murray, 30, lost his job to Der­rick Henry last sea­son and was due to make $6.25 mil­lion in 2018 when the Ti­tans let him go. He ran for 659 yards and six touch­downs last sea­son, dealt with a knee in­jury late in the year and missed the Ti­tans’ fi­nal reg­u­lar-sea­son game and two play­off con­tests. The Ti­tans ac­quired Murray in a March 2016 trade with the Ea­gles. Murray spent one year with Philadel­phia af­ter play­ing four sea­sons with the Cow­boys. Murray was play­ing for Dal­las in 2014 when he won the NFL rush­ing ti­tle and Of­fen­sive Player of the Year hon­ours.
