May have to scratch the idea of keeping Murray
Latavius Murray - $6,350,000
I thought he was only making about 3.5ml
The original contract was written to be able to cut him this year. We only have 1.2 divided over the next 2 years to pay on this. So I believe we would realize 5.1 savings this year.
Can't agree with this, I'd be shocked if we let Murray go. #1 Cook is still not a definite untill
camp opens up,#2 Murray was formidable as a short yardage and goal line back, #3 having
Murray gives us some experienced assurance if Cook isn't ready to come right out of the gate,
I don't believe Murray can carry a team for a season, but he can carry for a game or two. Also
he can catch out of the backfield, along with being better than adequate when it comes to
pass protection.#4 Murrays running style is a nice change up to Cook for that one two punch,
and last but not least, Jet will be more expensive to keep than Murray once he hits the
I get what your saying but 6.35ml for a guy that can carry a team for a game or two?
I think if we draft a rb and play him a lot in PS coupled with maybe a FA short yardage back we would be fine. Hamm could easily contribute more (in fact he should).
Ya, but we still have Cook on the cheap, it's feasible to pay Murray the extra for this season,
then we have the luxury of drafting, or finding a young RB in free agency.Give them this year
to season as the #3, and let Murray go next season, and if his contract falls in line with
the way the majority of contracts do(don't have the details, and to lazy to look up.lol)we
won't loose as much moolas, possibly zilch.
Maybe rework Murrays contract to 2 years $8M?
I think something similar to that is probably what will happen.
Murray is set to be the 5th highest paid RB in the League next year. I personally think he isn't good enough to start, nonetheless be in that range.
IMO if you approach a guy to renegotiate, you have to be prepared to cut them if decline.
I agree that we need at least one veteran in the backfield mix next year but if LT declines, there will be other backs out there.
This is my burner account.
