DeMarco Murray made his first appearance in front of Nashville media on Thursday when he was introduced to media at St.Thomas Sports Park.

The Tennessee Titans officially introduced DeMarco Murray to the media on Thursday during a morning press conference at St. Thomas Sports Park.

The Tennessee Titans began day two of free-agency with an introductory press conference to  officially announce the signing of running back DeMarco Murray, who the team acquired in a trade from the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.  

Murray, who signed as a free-agent last season with the Eagles endured a tumultuous season in Philadelphia under former head coach Chip Kelly, who was fired following the 2015 season. Management and Murray were still at odds leading the running back to request a trade. One of the teams on his list of possible destinations was the Titans, and on Monday general manager Jon Robinson made the deal a reality.

According to Robinson, the two teams first discussed the possibility of the trade in Indianapolis during the scouting combine, but it was not until the Titans medical staff had reviewed all medical information on Murray that things began to fall into place.

To complete the trade the Titans agreed to swap fourth round picks in the upcoming NFL Draft to secure the rights to Murray, contingent on the running back restructuring his contract, which Robinson and Murray's representative Bill Johnson were able to accomplish to complete the deal to bring Murray to Nashville.

Both Robinso, along with head coach Mike Mularkey spoke about the decision to deal for Murray during Thursday's press conference, and Murray took questions regarding his decision to place the Titans among the teams he was interested in potentially going in a trade.
