Terms of the cost of the trade for the Titans have not been released, but Murray's agents at SportsTrust Advisors, confirmed the deal was in the works. No deal can become official until Wednesday when new deals can be signed. It is believed that the trade would invlove restructuring Murray's current contract that he signed as a free-agent with the Eagles prior to last season. That deal was a five-year, $40 million deal that included $21 million guaranteed.

Two seasons ago, Murray led the NFL with  2,261 total yards from scrimmage, including 1,845 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns for the Cowboys.
