According to Florio, the Titans revised his four-year deal, which includes a base value of $25.5 million and $12.5 million guaranteed. However, Florio mentions that it’s unclear how much of the $12.5 million is fully guaranteed.
Murray receives incentives could push the deal to a maximum value of $33 million.
In the end, Murray managed to secure more guaranteed money than had previously, but Florio stresses that until we know what’s fully guaranteed, it’s hard to say for sure how well he made out in this deal.
We’re still waiting to hear what the Eagles will receive in return for Murray.
Murray, 27, is entering the second year of his five-year, $40 million contract that included $21 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $7 million (2016), $7.5 million (2017), and $7.5 million (2018-2019) over the remainder of the contract.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Murray will free up $4 million in available cap space for the Eagles while creating $4 million in dead money.
In 2015, Murray ran for 702 yards on 193 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with 44 receptions for 322 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 66 running back out of 68 qualifying players.
