On Monday, Eddie Borsilli of SiriusXM reported the Raiders would be interested in trading for running back DeMarco Murray, who is coming off a disappointing first season in Philadelphia. When he signed with the Eagles last March, Oakland was another team rumored to have been pursuing the former Cowboy.
The 2014 NFL rushing leader managed only 702 rushing yards and six touchdowns in 2015. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported multiple times this offseason that Murray is unhappy with the team. The running back has publicly denied those feelings.
