The Buffalo Bills Sign a Longtime NFL Running Back
It's the Monday after the NFL Draft, which means the Buffalo Bills have pretty much filled out their roster for training camp this July.
The Bills drafted six new players and brought even more undrafted free agents, who will all be at rookie minicamp this month. The Bills are allowed to bring in 90 players to training camp.
However, on Monday morning the Bills made a surprising move, although for some it isn't really a shock since it's the kind of running back the Bills wanted to have on the roster.
The Bills announced that they have officially signed running back Latavius Murray.
Murray is 33 years old and has been in the NFL since the 2014 season. He spent most of last season with the Denver Broncos, rushing for 700 yards and averaging 4.4 yards per carry, so he still has some left in the tank.
Murray is 6'3'' and is useful on goal line situations. He offers some power for the Bills backfield, who also features James Cook, Nyheim Hines and Damien Harris.
There's no guarantee that Murray makes the team but having him on the roster is a good bet, as he can be the healthy scratch most games and will give the Bills great veteran depth in the backfield.
This signing was reported on a couple of weeks ago but the Bills finally made it official on Monday.
