Update: 11:30 a.m. March 9th

The details on what the Titans gave up for DeMarco Murray are reportedly in. 

However, another report says the compensation involves a swap of 4th round pick. 

We'll know for sure when the trade is made official.

The Philadelphia Eagles have pulled off their second major trade of the day, sending RB DeMarco Murray to the Tennessee Titans

There is no word yet on what the Eagles are getting in return. The news was first reported by Ian Rapoport. The trade will include a new contract for Murray, his agents claimed on Twitter. The new contract likely makes it more manageable for the Eagles to trade Murray. He was set to have a $13 million dead money hit this season. 

The Titans fill a major need at RB by landing Murray. The team used David Cobb, Antonio Andrews and Bishop Sankey last season, but none of the three found much success.

The Eagles still have Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles at running back, but Mathews is on the trade block. The team could look to sign or draft a running back this offseason.

The trade won't be made official until the new league year starts Wednesday. It's the second of two trades the Eagles made today, as they dealt LB Kiko Alonso and CB Byron Maxwell to the Miami Dolphins. All three players were acquired by head coach Chip Kelly before the start of last season.  

More on this as the situation develops.
