NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — DeMarco Murray says he feels fresh after a much lighter workload than he wanted last season in Philadelphia, and he can't wait to get to work with the Titans after doing his own research about Tennessee.

Murray said Thursday that he feels good and fresh, though not by his own choice.

The NFL's 2014 rushing leader finds himself with a new team for a second straight season after the Eagles traded him to Tennessee, and Murray signed a new contract with the Titans on Wednesday.

General manager Jon Robinson says this is just the start of the change coming for a team 5-27 the past two seasons.

The Titans also confirmed deals for Texans center Ben Jones, Miami wide receiver Rishard Matthews and veteran quarterback Matt Cassell.
