It seemed to be a forgone conclusion after Minnesota signed former Raiders running back Latavius Murray on Wednesday. Obviously, I know it's a business - that I've learned these last few days. From a fantasy standpoint, there isn't too much to get excited about for Murray.
"There wasn't a thought in my mind to try and wear or ask for the #28". It's hard enough to replace a Hall of Famer and didn't have an interest in compounding that by wearing the number that Peterson made legendary in Minnesota. "You think about who is wearing 28". Murray had worn that number for the Raiders. I'm not here to be No. 28; there's no one like him. "It was something I didn't need them to tell me". Murray is 27, and McKinnon will turn 25 in two months.
The high school teammates had remained close friends after Murray left to pursue his football dreams at Central Florida and then the NFL. Peterson ends his tenure with the Vikings as the franchise leader in career rushing touchdowns, career rushing yards, most career carries most rushing touchdowns in a single season and most rushing yards in a single season.
Ultimately, it may take Murray signing with the Vikings or returning to the Raiders to break the contractual ice for Peterson, who is likely to sign a one-year deal wherever he goes. "We had a great conversation earlier today".
The Raiders hadn't shown any interest in re-signing Murray, which says they have other plans for their backfield (maybe Peterson?).
Chicago Bears rumors: Prince Amukamara signs
After missing out on top free-agent target Stephon Gilmore, the Chicago Bears have reportedly hit the secondary cornerback market. Amukamara played 14 games past year in Jacksonville, the second-most since being drafted 19th overall by the Giants in 2011.
In theory, sure. The Lions are believed to be in the market for another running back, and the bruising Peterson would be a nice complement to Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. This would present him with the opportunity to suit up alongside another former NFL MVP in quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Last season, Murray doubled his number of rushing touchdowns from six to 12. He also caught a combined 74 passes for 496 yards over those campaigns.
"I can improve the run game", Murray said. He's probably going to carry the ball 200 times, 225 times this year.
As for Murray, you never want to be the guy who replaces the legend, but he handled things beautifully on Instagram when introducing himself to the Minnesota faithful.
"I just know that some unfortunate injuries happened past year", Murray said during a conference call with Twin Cities media members Thursday.
