Lions reportedly hosting RB DeMarco Murray on Monday

Former Titans running back De Marco Murray is expected to visit Detroit on Monday

Former Titans running back De Marco Murray is expected to visit Detroit on Monday

National Football League teams are allowed to start entering contract negotiations with players on Monday prior to the new season beginning on Wednesday.

It didn't take long for recently-released Titans running back DeMarco Murray to find suitors in the free agent market. That's just 76.3 yards per game on the ground, almost 10 yards less per contest than the next closest team.

Murray finished third in the National Football League in rushing in 2016, but fell off dramatically in 2017 and averaged a career-worst 3.6 yards-per-carry.

However, he's only one year removed from a much more robust season where he finished with 1,287 yards and the ground, 377 yards receiving and a dozen total TDs. And the fact they are hosting both Murray and Stewart is proof. Murray, 30, was released by the Titans earlier this month after Derrick Henry grabbed the starting spot last season.

Prior to the Thursday announcement, the City of Asheville had filed a petition to have the body camera footage released. The mayor and City Council said they did not know of the incident before the video emerged.

He is coming off the least productive campaign of his career recording career lows with 659 rushing yards on just 3.6 yards per carry in 15 games played.

But the visits of Stewart and Murray indicate that the Seahawks are also looking to add a veteran to the group, and undoubtedly hoping to get someone who would contribute more than did Eddie Lacy, who was Seattle's one veteran free agent tailback addition last season and gained just 179 yards on 69 carries.

Stewart is entering his 11th season in the NFL. But he also posted a 3.4 yards per carry average, the worst of his entire career. Stewart spent Monday visiting the Detroit Lions.
