Raiders aim to be 'physical outfit that runs the ball'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Raiders' hiring of Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator is good news for running back Latavius Murray, who should get the chance to the primary ballcarrier, reports ESPN.com. Murray averaged 5.2 yards on 82 carries last season and could become a workhorse under Musgrave, who was Adrian Peterson's OC when Peterson rushed for nearly 2,100 yards in 2012.

"I'm definitely not going to come in with a system and force anybody to do something that's not natural. We're definitely going to try to customize and tailor the Raiders' system to fit the Raider players,” Musgrave said, per the website. “Philosophically, I do believe in running the football. I definitely want to be a physical outfit that runs the ball and imposes their will on the defense.” 

Coach Jack Del Rio isn't guaranteeing Murray the starting job, but he's clearly the best tailback on the roster currently.

Raiders not expected to re-sign RB Darren McFadden
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With expectations sky-high for Latavius Murray in 2015, the Raiders aren't expected to re-sign impending free agent running back Darren McFadden, reports CSNBayArea.com. McFadden, 27, averaged 3.4 yards per carry this season and has not had a good year since 2011.

Oakland also is expected to part ways with 29-year-oold running back Maurice Jones-Drew, saving the team $2.5 million.

Murray, 25, averaged 5.2 yards on his 82 carries and will enter next season as the starter.

Raiders new OC Musgrave impressed by Latavius Murray
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

New Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave told reporters during a conference call Tuesday he likes what he's seen from running back Latavius Murray.

"I have a very positive impression," Musgrave said. "He has tremendous size and speed. He had a super career (at Central Florida). I’m looking forward to getting on the field and finding out what he’s all about and what his strengths are so we can tailor our run game so it’s right up his alley."

Murray totaled 82 carries for 424 yards with two touchdowns in 2014, despite only seeing significant work in the last five weeks of the season.

Raiders' Latavius Murray gets it done through the air Week 17
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Raiders running back Latavius Murray found a way to make an impact despite a poor day on the ground.

Murray carried the ball 10 times for 37 yards. His longest run of the day went for just eight yards. While he wasn't much of a threat on the ground, Murray did have a nice game in the air. He led the club with four catches for 60 yards. He caught all four of his targets.

Murray got some run as the team's primary ball-carrier near the end of the season. Aside from a ridiculous game Week 12, where he gained 112 yards on just four carries, he failed to really establish himself as a future starter. Murray finished the year with 424 rushing yards on 82 attempts.

Raiders' Sparano: Latavius Murray can handle being a No. 1 guy
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

During an interview with Sirius XM radio, Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano indicated that Latavius Murray could be the running back of the future, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. 

"Early in the season, it took us a while to figure that part of it out," Sparano said. "He's a guy that was hurt all year last year. Latavius has really come into his own, and I think he can handle the workload of being a No. 1 guy."

Murray has appeared in 14 games this season, rushing for 387 yards and two touchdowns on 72 attempts. He has rushed for 333 yards over the past four weeks and will look to end the season on a high note Sunday against Denver.

Oakland is 14-point underdog at Denver.
