NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Agents for running back DeMarco Murray confirm that the NFL’s 2014 rushing leader has been traded by the Philadelphia Eagles to the Tennessee Titans.

Murray also has a new contract in the deal, SportsTrust Advisors wrote on Twitter on Monday night.

The deal gives the Titans the running back threat they’ve lacked since releasing Chris Johnson, while the Eagles rid themselves of one of the contracts signed by former coach Chip Kelly.

Murray signed a five-year, $40 million contract with $21 million guaranteed with Philadelphia last year, and a person familiar with the trade told The Associated Press that Murray agreed to rework his deal. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal will not be announced until Wednesday.

Other terms of the deal were not immediately available.
