Titans Releasing Murray; Henry Now An RB1
The Titans have announced they have informed running back DeMarco Murray that he will be released.

"I want to thank DeMarco for his contributions as a Titan, not only for what he did on the field but also in the locker room and in the community," general manager Jon Robinson released in a statement. "He was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward.”

Murray was set to make $6.5 million in salary and bonus during the 2018 season and had the same cap hit. The Titans will get all of that money back once Murray is officially off the roster.

Murray ran 184 times for 659 yards and six touchdowns last season and missed the team’s final three games with a hamstring injury.

Of obvious interest to fantasy owners, Derrick Henry, who led the Titans in rushing, will take over as the No. 1 back now that Murray will be heading elsewhere to continue his career.

Even with the uncertainty that comes with a change in coaching staff and offense, Henry’s stock will immediately rise.

It’s something to watch for in early mock and best-ball drafts. Expect to pay accordingly.
