Latavius Murray on New Team, New Number & New Opportunity with Vikings

After years of Adrian Peterson, the Vikings now turn to Latavius Murray, recently signed from the Oakland Raiders. Peterson, who remains on the open market, had already visited with the Seahawks but left without signing a deal.

Spielman also added the following.

If Murray doesn't live up to expectations, Minnesota can cut him without much penalty as long as he is cut before the 2018 season, Minnesota is only on the hook for $3.4 million, not the full $8.5 million. Murray rushed for 788 yards and a career-high 12 touchdown's last season in Oakland at a four yards per carry clip.

"Adrian is probably going to go down as one of the greatest Vikings", Spielman said. They re-signed veteran cornerback Terence Newman on Wednesday and also reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension with wide receiver Adam Thielen worth as much as $27 million including $11 million guaranteed.

With that, it's the end of an era for one of the most prolific National Football League running backs of all-time. Part of the was because Chris Ivory had a sudden injury issue prior to the Week 1 game that kind of derailed his whole season and T.J.

Don't be surprised if Burkhead ends up as the starter, which will obviously increase his value and drop Lewis in the rankings. In his career, he's rushed for 375 yards and three touchdowns while catching 34 passes for 288 yards and a touchdown.

"I'm planning on playing next season, " Newman told the network.

"There wasn't a thought in my mind to try and wear or ask for the #28", Murray wrote in an Instagram post later that morning. I'm not here to be No. 28; there's no one like him.

A sixth-round draft pick in 2013 out of Central Florida, Murray was selected for the Pro Bowl in 2015 season.

"I want to say to Vikings fans: I'm not here to replace No. 28; he's irreplaceable". The Vikings have not closed the door on re-signing Peterson, but reaching a deal with Murray would end his tenure with them.
