Oakland Raiders starting running back Latavius Murray will reportedly test the open market

The Oakland Raiders finished last year with the sixth-ranked offense but may be losing one of their most reliable weapons in the offseason. 

ESPN's Josina Anderson is reporting that the team intends to allow impending free agent and starting running back Latavius Murray to test the free agency market.

Murray led the team with 788 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, one year removed after finishing second in the AFC with 1,066 yards and being named to his first Pro Bowl.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie seemed to have struck gold with undrafted free agent running back Jalen Richard who proved to be an explosive weapon last year, finishing with 491 yards with 5.9 yards per carry, while also hauling in 29 receptions for 194 yards and a total of three touchdowns.

McKenzie also selected former Texas Tech running back DeAndre Washington in the fifth round, who also proved his worth with 467 rushing yards and two touchdowns in 14 games. He also had 17 receptions for 115 receiving yards.

It's key to note that Anderson also stated that the team is open to Murray returning if he wants to after seeing what kind of money is available on the market.
