DeMarco Murray didn’t play all that well last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, but that apparently won’t make too much of a difference in his paycheck next season.
Murray will get a reworked deal after his looming trade to the Tennessee Titans becomes final, and details of the new deal have leaked. According to Pro Football Talk, the maximum value of the revised four-year contract is $33 million, not too far from the 5-year, $40 million deal he signed with the Eagles last offseason.
The Titans base deal, according to the report, is $25.5 million, with $12.5 million guaranteed.
His Eagles’ deal did have more guaranteed money, but it’s impressive that he could make more after rushing for 702 yards and six touchdowns in 2015. Murray, 28, has 1,127 carries during his five-year career, and many wondered if he would have a drop-off after his 392 carries in 2014 with Dallas.
