Saints Signing RB Latavius Murray For Four Years, $14.4 Million


According to Adam Schefter, the New Orleans Saints are planning to sign RB Latavius Murray to a four-year, $14.4 million deal.

That means RB Mark Ingram is no longer expected to return to New Orleans.  

Murray, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Raiders back in 2013. After four years in Oakland, Murray departed for a three-year, $15 million contract that included $3.4 million guaranteed with the Vikings last year.

In 2018, Murray carried the ball 140 times for 578 yards at a 4.1 YPC, and scored six touchdowns.  He also caught 22 passes for 141 yards and no touchdowns.  

Ingram, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract before returning to the Saints on a four-year, $16 million contract that included $7.6 million guaranteed a few years ago.

In 2018, Ingram appeared in 12 games and rushed for 645 yards on 138 carries (4.7 YPC) to go along with 21 receptions for 17 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 15 running back out of 61 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 – 2019 NFL Free Agents list.
