The New Orleans Saints added a 29-year-old power back in Latavius Murray on Tuesday, but some analysts are struggling to wrap their heads around it.

The move, which signals longtime Saints RB Mark Ingram is headed elsewhere, was panned by two Sports Illustrated analysts, who graded the move as a D+.

Murray’s contract was reported as four years, $14.4 million, which pegs him at more than Ingram was making on his previous contract. If Ingram’s next contract elsewhere is not significantly more, “this will register as one of the most befuddling roster moves of 2019,” the analysts write.
