With Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings both expected to hit the free agent marketplace, this offseason should be huge for Raiders running back Latavius Murray. On injured reserve for his rookie season with an ankle injury, Murray might be in a position to land a big chunk of the Oakland run game workload. Coach Dennis Allen will be watching and evaluating.
The Raiders announced Monday they placed tight end David Ausberry on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. The Raiders elevated offensive lineman Lamar Mady from the practice squad to take Ausberry's roster spot.
Doug Martin will be the lead back in Tampa Bay in 2014, but new Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford is talking up a 1-2 punch in the backfield, according to the team's website. That could mean pairing Martin with Mike James or Bobby Rainey or someone else.
