Get Woke … You know the thing… NFL Cutting Salaries … players resist

  • The Saints cut Latavius Murray, a backup running back, on Tuesday.
  • According to a report, Murray had refused to take a pay cut from his $3 million salary.
  • The timing was especially brutal, as Murray’s salary would have soon become guaranteed.

Veteran running back Latavius Murray is searching for a new team days before the NFL season begins.

The New Orleans Saints cut Murray, 31, their backup running back, on Tuesday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Saints had asked Murray to take a pay cut and released him when he refused.

Emmanuel Acho, a former NFL player and current Fox Sports analyst, noted that the timing was harsh: If Murray, a vested veteran — a player with four years of experience — had been on the roster past 3 p.m. on Tuesday, his salary for 2021 would have become guaranteed.
