Eagles to trade RB DeMarco Murray to the Titans

NFL.com - [Full Article]

DeMarco Murray's rocky tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles is suddenly over.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Tennessee Titans will acquire the former NFL rushing champion from the Eagles in a trade. The terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the move, which won't become official until Wednesday.

Murray altered his contract to accommodate the trade, but he did not lose his $21 million in guaranteed money, per Rapoport, according to a source informed of the deal.

Fantasy Impact: 

This would seem to solve the Titans' problem at running back and kills any positive offseason buzz for David Cobb. The Titans have struggled to run the ball in recent years, but Murray will be an upgrade at the position. He'll likely be drafted as a middle-of-the-road RB2 in August. In Philadelphia, it's a boon to Ryan Mathews' value, provided he stays put.
