PFT - Latavius Murray was set to visit with Seattle on Tuesday, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that he will be in Minnesota to meet with the Vikings instead.

[Eddie] Lacy met with the Vikings over the weekend while Murray spent time with the Jaguars as he looks to cash in on his work for the Raiders over the last few years. Murray gained 2,278 yards and scored 20 touchdowns on 543 carries over the last three seasons. He also caught 91 passes out of the backfield.

Free agent running back Latavius Murray has enjoyed a strong start to his career with the Oakland Raiders, and is looking to cash in this offseason. 

Murray's exploration of his options is not significant, but the teams involved could create a domino effect among available veteran running backs — including future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson.

With Lacy heading to Seattle, one would assume that the Seahawks are out of play for Peterson. And if Murray were to sign with the Vikings, it would essentially rule out a return to Minnesota for the seven-time Pro Bowler.

It was initially reported by NFL Network's Stacey Dales last week that Peterson had displayed interest in joining the Raiders.
