Veteran running back Latavius Murray signs with Bills

The Buffalo Bills beefed up their backfield after inking veteran running back Latavius Murray to a one-year deal.

Murray has bounced around the league since spending his first three seasons with the Las Vegas Raiders. He has played for the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens, and Denver Broncos.

Last season with the Broncos, he posted 760 rushing yards and five touchdowns in 12 games. He played one game with the Saints, where he recorded 57 rushing yards on 11 carries with a touchdown.

Murray has developed into a highly reliable secondary running back, which should serve him well with the Bills.

“I just think that the fit was right, to be able to come in and again, provide a different element in the run game and then also try to help the guys around me in that room, just based off my experience,” Murray said via ESPN. “So, I look forward to learning from them. They’re younger, keep me young and I also look forward to sharing knowledge and sharing my experiences to make them better, which essentially helps the team.”

Murray will provide much-needed depth to the Broncos’ backfield, where he will compete with James Cook, Damien Harris, and Nyheim Hines for playing time. The Bills’ depth will take some of the onus off star quarterback Josh Allen to be a notable factor in the running back.

Murray is a reliable goal-line factor as well as a strong complementary back that can be a formidable heavy-workload option.
