Murrell's in his third NFL season, having come into the league as undrafted free agent with the Eagles in 2007. He was released by the Eagles before playing a game for them, and picked up by the Jets.
The Jets chose not to tender Murrell, and he's already paid a visit to the Broncos.A couple of interesting things on Murrell. First, he played for Div. I-AA powerhouse Applachian State, which means he does have a winning pedigree. And second, he's the younger brother of Adrian Murrell, the ex-Jets running back who was together with Patriots coach Bill Belichick (then the NYJ defensive coordinator) in New York in 1997
