Latavius Murray: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman suggested Wednesday that Murray isn't guaranteed to return to the team in 2018, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "We've discussed a lot of things," Spielman said when asked if the Vikings were set with Dalvin Cook (knee) and Murray as the team's primary running backs next season. "We're very excited, Dalvin continues to rehab. We're very excited about the progress he's making and anxious to see what we are with him in the fold along with whatever combination is there."

2018

2017

Toe and ankle injuries limited Murray to 14 games last year and reduced his workload when he was in the lineup, but the Raiders gave him plenty of action in the red zone and as a result he scored 12 TDs, good for fifth in the NFL. He has the speed and pass-catching ability to do damage in open space, but his height (6-3) and upright running style make it difficult to handle the punishment that comes with being a lead back. He signed with the Vikings after undergoing offseason ankle surgery, only to watch his new team select Dalvin Cook in the draft. While the rookie is the favorite to start, Murray could still have value as a receiving-down option. Without those red-zone carries, an area in which Cook excelled in college, it's tough to see Murray coming close to double-digit scores again. The veteran fell behind in missing the offseason program and first two weeks of training camp, but he still expects to be ready for Week 1.

2016

When a player goes off in limited action, it can be tricky to apply that to a potential role increase. Consider the case of Murray. He went bonkers in limited touches two years back, but when the Raiders handed him a featured role last year, the efficiency left us old (4.0 a carry, 5.7 a reception). He seemed to wear down over the final two months of the year, when his average rush cratered to 3.3. Nonetheless, the Raiders still have a high opinion of Murray. They did add rookie DeAndre Washington, but he's merely a fifth-round pick. Washington could cut into Murray's pass activity, but he's under 200 pounds and not considered a threat for full-time duty. Perhaps the overall improvement of Oakland's offense could help boost Murray. Quarterback Derek Carr is coming off a career year, and WR Amari Cooper could take a step forward as a sophomore. Oakland's minus-40 point differential was its second-best mark in 13 years this team might not be far from contention. And if the Raiders improve as a club, it figures to give Murray a better draw with game flow and second-half opportunity.

2015

After missing his rookie season with an ankle injury, Murray entered 2014 buried on the Raiders' depth chart behind veterans Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. As the the old-timers got hurt or simply underperformed, Murray finally got a look in Week 12 and exploded for 112 rushing yards on just four carries before bowing out with a concussion. Once he returned in Week 14, Oakland happily made him the lead back. Built more like a wide receiver at 6-3, 225, and with the speed to match, Murray uses plus burst and vision to blow through holes into the second level, and he's a major asset on passing downs, showing both excellent receiving skills (averaging four targets per game over the final four weeks last year) as well as strong pass blocking. He isn't particularly elusive, however, and his frame doesn't allow him to run with a lot of power, a combination that could leave him susceptible to injury. It also made him fairly easy to bring down, and Murray's seven missed or broken tackles in 99 touches was among the worst rates in the league. The Raiders brought in Trent Richardson and Roy Helu to help keep his workload manageable, but Murray should get every chance to prove he can be a productive starter this season.

2014

Murray spent his entire rookie season on IR due to an ankle injury, but even with that all healed up, he faces an uphill battle for carries in the early going behind the two-headed monster of Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. Of course, McFadden's an injury waiting to happen and MJD's no spring chicken, so Murray could end up producing sneaky value as the year goes on. With elite speed, good hands and receiver-like size at 6-3, 230, he has the tools to be a three-down back, but will need to show some durability before the Raiders start looking at him like one.

2013

Murray will start the season on injured reserve. The Raiders' sixth-round pick, Murray will eventually compete with Rashad Jennings to be Darren McFadden's primary backup. The backup to the fragile McFadden, who has never played more than 13 games in a single season, could have a good opportunity to see significant work. Jennings has also been less than durable, which leaves Murray in a good spot for action. At 6-3, 223, Murray is built more like a big receiver than a tailback, but he's a speedy runner (4.4 40) who possesses surprising lateral quickness and good acceleration. He averaged at least 5.6 YPC in each of his final three seasons at Central Florida while totaling 40 touchdowns in that span.
