The Tennessee Titans have signed defensive tackle Larrell Murchison to a multi-year contract extension through the 2024 campaign, a source confirmed to Broadway Sports Media on Tuesday afternoon.
The No. 175 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, Murchison was previously scheduled to reach restricted free agency (RFA) at the conclusion of the current season. Murchison is currently earning his third accrued season. The extension keeps Murchison in Tennessee through the 2023-24 campaign.
The Titans had recently been elevating Murchison to the game-day roster from the practice squad due to a plethora of injuries across their defensive line. Jeffery Simmons and Bud Dupree both missed Sunday’s win over the Denver Broncos. Simmons and Dupree are currently on the wrong side of questionable for Thursday’s primetime showing versus the Green Bay Packers. Kevin Strong has also been banged up lately. The Titans have already maxed out Murchison’s practice-squad elevations this season. Murchison will be added to the 53-man roster as a result of this extension, and should feature versus the Packers.
Murchison has appeared in 24 career games with the Titans through two-and-a-half campaigns. He’s made five starts. Murchison has recorded 14 total tackles and two tackles for loss. The extension guarantees continuity for all parties involved. Murchison remains in Tennessee in a familiar system alongside a familiar defensive line coach in Terrell Williams. Murchison will continue providing the Titans’ defensive line with some much-needed depth.
