Running back Murray retires
Former offensive player of the year and three-time Pro Bowler was cut by Titans in March.
DeMarco Murray is retiring from the NFL. The 2014 offensive player of the year made the announcement on ESPN on Friday, four months after being released by the Tennessee Titans.
Murray, 30, was a three-time Pro Bowler, including in 2016 with the Titans, but lost his job to Derrick Henry last season. He ran for 659 yards and six touchdowns, dealt with a knee injury late in the year, and missed the Titans’ final regular-season game and two playoff contests.
“I’ve always heard the saying ‘when you know, you know, and one day that day will come,’ and for me it was the last year or two,” said Murray, who led the league with 1,845 yards rushing with Dallas in 2014. “I’ve been constantly thinking about this. Working out still, in great shape, feel great ... I just woke up a couple weeks ago and it started to burn and burn and trigger and it got deeper, so this morning I decided to call it a career.”
