NEDROW, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Former Onondaga Central star Latavius Murray is reportedly looking for another NFL home.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the running back was released by the Saints Tuesday.

Schefter reports that the Saints requested Murray to take a pay cut and he refused. Murray, who played for the Saints the last two seasons, averaged nearly 650 yards per season in New Orleans. He signed a four-year, $14.4 million contract in 2019, after two seasons with the Vikings.

Murray was selected in sixth round of the NFL Draft in 2013 by the Oakland Raiders.

As for where the CNY-star might play next, Field Yates speculated on Twitter that “Feels like the Ravens should give his agent a call soon…”
