Ex-Titans RB DeMarco Murray to visit Seattle Seahawks
Last Updated: 13/03/18 7:19am
After visiting the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, former Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray has a visit lined up with the Seattle Seahawks, according to an NFL Network report.
Murray, 30, was released by the Titans last week after two years with the club. He tallied 659 rushing yards on 3.6 yards per carry in 2017 after figures of 1,287 and 4.4, respectively, in his Pro Bowl campaign of 2016.
While Murray topped 60 rushing yards in a game just once in 2017, he delivered his best performance against the Seahawks in Week 3, racking up 115 yards on 14 carries in the win, highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown.
Both the Lions and Seahawks have also visited with ex-Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart.
Stewart, who turns 31 later this month, will visit the New York Giants on Tuesday.
He was released by the Panthers, who drafted him 13th overall in 2008, two weeks ago after 10 seasons with the club. New Giants offensive coordinator Mike Shula was on Carolina's staff for seven of those 10 seasons, including the last five as offensive coordinator.
Stewart ran for 680 yards on a career-low 3.4 yards per attempt in 2017, scoring six touchdowns on the ground. He holds the Panthers' franchise records for career rushing yards (7,318) and carries (1,699).
Giants backs Orleans Darkwa and Shane Vereen are both set to be unrestricted free agents when the league year officially opens on Wednesday.
