As was previously reported, both free agent running back Latavius Murray and defensive tackle Dontari Poe were in Jacksonville today conducting visits with the Jaguars. It seems as though Murray’s visit has concluded, and he is prepared to leave Jacksonville without a contract at this time.
Latavius Murray’s visit with #Jaguars has concluded, source said. As for if Poe remains in mix, we're still in wait-and-see.— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) March 13, 2017
Just because Murray is leaving without a contract at this time does not mean he will not ultimately end up signing with the Jaguars, it just makes it less likely. Murray accumulated 2,917 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns on the ground in his first three seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
As far as Dontari Poe is concerned, it was reported earlier today that he already had a visit scheduled with the Atlanta Falcons, which seemed to indicate that he may be leaving Jacksonville empty handed. However, it sounds as though Poe is still in the building. Just as Murray concluding his visit does not mean he won’t sign with the Jaguars, Poe’s visit still ongoing does not mean he is a slam dunk to sign here. It is a little curious though, that his visit has yet to conclude, which could indicate that the two parties are working out an agreement. Obviously, could is the key word there.
We will update these stories as more information becomes available.
UPDATE: Jason La Canfora is reporting that Poe will go on to his visit with the Falcons, and he will not make any decisions until then.
