Jags, Murray currently “not likely,” but could change


As running back DeMarco Murray tries to parlay an NFL-leading 1,845 rushing yards into a new contract, various teams are interested. But not yet at the compensation level Murray desires.

The Raiders are involved, and the Cowboys would like to keep Murray around, on their terms. The Jaguars also are interested.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s currently “not likely” that Murray will join the Jaguars. But that could change.

It could change, apparently, if Murray agrees to take less than he wants, or if the Jaguars agree to pay more than they’re willing to pay.

It’s not known what Murray wants or what he could get. Given the rest of the running back market, $8 million annually with $20 million guaranteed could be a reasonable target.
