DeMarco Murray excited to be in a 'strictly downhill' offense with Titans

It's fair to say that DeMarco Murray's one year with the Eagles was far from a success. A year after leading the league in rushing with the Cowboys, Murray ran for just 702 yards with the Eagles in 2015.

Murray's straight-ahead running style didn't mesh with Chip Kelly's East-West ground attack, producing Murray's second-fewest rushing yards in his career.

The Eagles decided to part ways with Murray, dealing him to the Titans this offseason. The change of scenery appears to have revitalized the 28-year-old running back, who said he's excited to be playing in Mike Mularkey's downhill rushing attack.

"It's strictly downhill and that's what I've been accustomed to my entire life," Murray said on the Jim Rome show. "Nothing against last year or what happened, it just didn't work out, but I'm very excited about this upcoming season and looking forward to it."

Murray added that he's hoping to have a rebirth in 2016, seeking to regain the form that helped him rush for a career-high 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014 with the Cowboys.

"It's hard to look back, but it was a great season two years ago and it definitely was a tough one last year," Murray said. "But I think from both seasons, I took some positives things from it and learned and appreciated the game more and appreciated the time you have to play the sport. Obviously it was tough last year, and I'm just looking for a huge back-bounce year this year."
