    Good depth. I think he might start at guard soon.

    my prediction

    neither Pugh or Sweezey are back next year and Murray fills one of those slots

    Max $9m total.

    Maybe they see him as Sweezy's replacement.

    My prediction is he becomes a starter at guard this week and for the rest of the season.

    They tried him out in the game at guard last week, and I think it was because Sweezy was not getting the job done to their liking.

    As versatile as Murray is, they aren't paying him 4.5 million just to be a backup - at least I hope not.

    Yeah, I know. Still think they resigned him now because they wanted to make sure they had continuity going forward before moving him to starter.

    No question he's a starting guard next year, and probably a replacement for Sweezey. You don't pay a league minimum salary free agent $9 million over 2 years to be a backup.

    It says MAX $9m contract which suggests it has a structure of incentives, likely playing time or start related.

    Maybe they edged their bets. If he works out practicing as a guard this year and start then he gets $9m over 2 years. If not and he's backup tackle its something like $4m over 2 years. We will see.

    Sweezy has really been down this year. Was solid last year but looks washed. So wouldn't surprise me if Murray kept the starting job.
