The Minnesota Vikings have signed former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray. Although the contract details have not been released yet, it is official that he signed.

According to Pro Football Reference, last season Murray carried the football 195 times for 788 yards and finished with 12 touchdowns. He also tallied 33 receptions for 264 yards. There is good news and bad news for Latavius Murray this upcoming season. The good news is he will not face the stiff defenses of Kansas City or Denver twice a year anymore. The bad news is the difference in offensive lines. According to pro football focus, Murray will transition from the 4th best line to the 29th best line in the NFL.

The writing was on the wall for former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Will he find work elsewhere?
