Titans free agency: Do you approve of the Titans trade for DeMarco Murray?

New, comments
Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

We finally know the terms of the DeMarco Murray deal. The Titans and Eagles swapped 4th round picks in exchange for Murray. That means the Titans only had to move down 13 picks to get an extreme upgrade at the running back position. His deal is for 4 years and includes $12.5 million in guaranteed money (full contract breakdown here). That was really nice move by Jon Robinson.

Potential Upside

Murray is just one year removed from leading the league in rushing. He is the game-changing running back that the Titans desperately needed. His downhill running style fits perfectly with the type of run game that Mike Mularkey wants his offense to run. Also, the Titans gave up virtually nothing to get him.

Potential downside

Murray struggled last year and was a bit of a malcontent when he wasn't getting the ball. He is also 2 years removed from a season where he carried the ball 392(!) times. That is a huge number that can shorten the career of a running back.

I see this as a clear win for the Titans, but I would love to hear your thoughts. Vote in our poll and sound off in the comments.
