Titans running backs coach Sylvester Croom is sold on veteran running back DeMarco Murray.
He loves his work ethic, his leadership skills, and his ability. He’s been blown away by what he’s seen this offseason.
“He’s a coach’s dream,’’ Croom said of Murray.
It’s fair to wonder if Murray’s best years are behind him after his disappointing season in Philadelphia (193 carries for 702 yards and six touchdowns). His 3.6 YPC was a full 1.1 YPC less than his 2014 average in his epic season with the Cowboys. Now he joins a Tennessee team that may have trouble staying in a run-heavy game script, and he’ll have to fend off 2nd-round pick Derrick Henry. But it's good to hear that he's off to a good start.
