Saints are releasing RB Latavius Murray, per source. They asked for a pay reduction yesterday and he refused. Murray is coming off his best season, averaging 4.5 yards per carry and 7.7 yards per catch.
Jones has shot up the depth chart this summer, and with the release of Devonta Forman and now Murray, it looks like Jones is the team's RB2. Kamara owners take note. Jones could have standalone value as well. Over the past two seasons, when Kamara is active and healthy (29 games), Murray has averaged 9.9 touches for 48 yards and 0.24 touchdowns per game. In the two games that Kamara missed, Murray averaged an eye-popping 31.0 touches for 153.5 yards and 2.0 touchdowns. Jones should at least get a similar workload.
