Pete Prisco Names the Titans Most Overrated Player

New, comments

I saw this one coming.

This should surprise no one. In Pete Prisco's annual overrated players list, the CBS analyst named DeMarco Murray as the Titans representative. Murray is entering his first season with the Tennessee Titans after being acquired this offseason from the Eagles.

To Prisco's point, Murray is coming off easily the worst season of his career. It just didn't work with Chip Kelly and the Eagles. Here's what Prisco had to say about Murray specifically.

While most people think his one-year stop in Philadelphia will turn out to be an aberration, I do not. I think his career is on the downside. He averaged 3.6 per carry last season and he's entering his sixth season. Running back careers go off a cliff. Is his?

I honestly find myself siding with Pete here. We've seen running backs go from the top to the bottom almost instantly as they hit their late twenties. Can Murray recover from his down year?

He's coming back to power football, getting away from Chip Kelly's infamous stretch run plays that didn't necessarily fit Murray's skill set. He'll have a chance to get north and south more often, but it remains to be seen whether or not the additions of Jack Conklin and Ben Jones can actually fix the Titans' issues up front.

Do you agree with Prisco? Other options could include Taylor Lewan, Chance Warmack or even Kendall Wright -- but I think Prisco got this one right.
