Bills sign running back Latavius Murray to one-year contract

Murray played 12 games for the Denver Broncos in 2022

Orchard Park, N.Y. (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Bills added more size to the running backs room on Monday with the signing of veteran running back Latavius Murray to a one-year contact.

This signing comes after Murray had a free agent visit with the Bills earlier this offseason.

The 33-year-old has played 10 seasons in the NFL, making 75 starts in 135 career games and earning one Pro Bowl nod in 2015 with the Oakland Raiders. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards that season.

This will be Murray's sixth stop in his 10-year career after being drafted by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Murray has eight-connective seasons with, at least, four rushing touchdowns in a year. His career-best game in the NFL came while with the Minnesota Vikings, carrying the ball 24 times for 155 yards in 2018 and a score.

This past season with the Denver Broncos, Murray averaged 4.4 yards per-carry in 12 games and scored five touchdowns. He also played one game last season with the New Orleans Saints, rushing 11 times for 57 yards and a score.

Murray will be joining a running backs room in Buffalo with the likes of James Cook, Nyheim Hines, and Damien Harris.
