Report: FA DeMarco Murray declined group workout with Saints
Free-agent running back DeMarco Murray received an invite from the New Orleans Saints for a workout on Wednesday, but the veteran preferred not to work out with a large group of running backs, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported, citing a source.
Little has been heard about the seven-year pro since he was released by the Tennessee Titans in March. Murray reportedly visited with the Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, and Detroit Lions in the days after his release, but there has been nothing more since the draft.
Murray is holding out for a job as a significant contributor, according to Schefter.
The Saints could be in the market for some insurance at running back considering their leading rusher in 2017, Mark Ingram, has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season.
Last year's Rookie of the Year, Alvin Kamara, is expected to draw the lion's share of the carries in Ingram's absence.
