News: Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said Thursday that Murray is a candidate to lead the team's backfield, the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur reports.
Impact: Del Rio said Murray needs to work on his awareness and football IQ, but Oakland's new coach also praised the running back for his combination of size and speed. While the Raiders will likely bring in competition of some sort, Murray remains the clear favorite to open 2015 as the starter. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew were both unimpressive in 2014, and it's possible neither will be back with the team next season.
