NFL free agency 2017: Raiders could lose top rushing option Latavius Murray

By | June 6, 2017

The Raiders are at risk to lose their best running back option to free agency this offseason.

According to an ESPN report, Oakland is expected to let running back Latavius Murray test free agency at the start of the league year on March 9. The report states that Murray could possibly re-sign with the Raiders after having tested the free agency waters.

This season’s success was boosted by the performances of dynamic rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott, a fourth-round pick from Mississippi State, was only starting following season-ending injuries in the preseason to Tony Romo and Kellen Moore.

Prescott went on to throw for 3,667 yards with 23 touchdowns and just four interceptions. Elliott, the fourth overall pick in last year’s draft, led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was selected as the league’s top assistant coach.

After a 110-tackle season and offering plus size for the position, the declared junior had a lot to prove at the Combine in terms of his lateral quickness and fluidity as a coverage linebacker and pass rusher. He’s an effective 3-4 inside linebacker or 4-3 strong side linebacker, and his production proved as much.

But Lee’s lack of great coverage range or sack production may limit the teams interested in him as a mid-round draft choice. If he can’t produce impressive numbers at his Pro Day, Lee may end up seriously regretting his decision to enter the draft early.
