The Tennessee Titans have released running back DeMarco Murray. The Titans made this move to save $6.5 million.

The franchise also does not have to face any dead cap money with this move. The move now makes third-year back Derrick Henry as their featured back.

Murray ran out of gas towards the end of the season. He had 184 carries for 659 yards, including one 100-yardage game, and six touchdowns.

This past season with the Titans was his worst since his second-year in the league with the Dallas Cowboys in 2012. He had 161 carries for 663 yards, including one 100-yardage season, and four touchdowns that season.

The 30-year-old back played much of last season banged up. Yet, he averaged 3.58 yards per carry.

Wherever he signs, he’ll likely be as a committee guy and will no longer be a starter in this league on a full-time basis.

The 24-year-old Henry had 176 carries for 744 yards, including two 100-yardage games, and five touchdowns. His best game of the season came against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6 when he had 19 carries for 131 yards and a touchdown.

The Titans, who already have David Fluellen and Khalfani Muhammad behind Henry on the depth chart, is expected to add a veteran to back up Henry, who could also be a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
