Free agent running back DeMarco Murray might be hinting on what he will be during the 2018 season. And it might not be what you're thinking.
After being released by the Tennessee Titans, the veteran has yet to find a new home, but that may change very soon.
On Thursday, Murray posted a picture of himself in front of an ESPN sign with the caption "Stayed tuned" on his Instagram story. Since he remains unsigned, he could be hinting at an early retirement from the NFL and working for ESPN.
Considering that there are many teams that are interested in signing the seven-year veteran, I wouldn't think that Murray is about to hang up his cleats. In his seven seasons in the league, Murray has racked up 9,339 yards and 55 total touchdowns.

Then again, his production has been dropping the past couple years, so it isn't surprising that people are speculating that he might retire. With the Eagles in 2016, he finished the year with 702 rushing yards and experienced his worst rushing season last year in his career by only having 659 rushing yards in 15 games. That led to the Titans cutting him loose earlier in the offseason.
The good news is that it looks like he has a fallback option.
