DeMarco Murray reportedly headed to the AFC South

The Jaguars get to face DeMarco Murray twice a year for the foreseeable future.

The Tennessee Titans are reportedly finalizing a trade deal that will see DeMarco Murray come to the AFC South. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles are offloading the underperforming running back.

That should be... an interesting offense next year. With Laremy Tunsil likely headed to Nashville with the No. 1 overall pick, an offensive line that isn't bad, and Marcus Mariota as a legitimately solid quarterback, if the Titans add a decent wide receiver to their team the offense could look a lot different.

The Jaguars went hard after Murray at this time last year, so much so that general manager Dave Caldwell and Murray's agent were reportedly having contract discussions.

Listen, Murray could be #washed, but the possibility remains that behind a decent offensive line and with more stability than Chip Kelly could bring, Murray can still be a good running back in this league. Murray had 2,966 rushing yards in the two seasons preceding his deal with the Eagles. But last year he only gained 702 yards on the ground, the second-worst year of his career.

The trade is expected to be finalized on Wednesday when the new league calendar year begins.
