He "has a chance at a huge year" in new coordinator Bill Musgrave's offense, one team source told ESPN's Adam Caplan, "because he is smart, physically a freak."
Murray came to life down the stretch during his second NFL season, pumping out all but 11 of his 424 yards over the final six games of 2014. His 5.17 yards per tote trailed only four other backs across the entire league. As for Musgrave, the play-caller brings a history of coaching up runners after guiding Adrian Peterson and Michael Turner to massive campaigns.
"Getting a chance to start three games (last season), it's something that I definitely want to continue to build off of," Murray said in May, per the team's official website. "I had that mentality in the offseason just to prepare to be the No. 1 guy and play that way and train that way."
