Saints reached out to RB DeMarco Murray to bring him to New Orleans for a workout today, but he preferred not to work out with a large group of RBs, per source. Murray still waiting for right opportunity and believes he is ready to make a significant contribution in 2018.

The report came one day after the Saints reportedly planned to bring Jamaal Charles in for a visit.
Murray played the last two seasons with the Tennessee Titans, who released him in March.
Murray led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns while with the Dallas Cowboys in 2014. The Philadelphia Eagles signed him as an unrestricted free agent in 2015 and traded him to the Titans in 2016.
The Saints appear to be in the market for an experienced running back with Mark Ingram set to miss the first four regular-season games because of a league-mandated suspension.
