Vikings sign free agent running back Latavius Murray

By Matthew Coller

The Minnesota Vikings have signed a running back who wore No. 28 and it’s not Adrian Peterson.

The Vikings announced early Thursday morning they have come to a contract agreement with former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray.

We have signed RB Latavius Murray (@LataviusM).

Murray rushed for 788 yards last season and averaged 4.0 Yards Per Carry as the main part of a three-man rotation in Oakland. He also contributed 33 catches and was ranked by Pro Football Focus as one of the league’s best pass blocking backs.

Signing Murray almost certainly means that Peterson’s career in Minnesota is over.
