This highlights incompetence of RB FO and also coaching. Yes, Murillo had a tough year, where he made some boneheaded mistakes, but still contributed a lot, and was the best RB on the team. Year before he was an all star and still very young. Played well for his NT team. Mistakes were correctable too and talent undeniable. So, what do we do? Trade the youngster away after one sub-par season. He immediately wins starting spot on a team way better than RB. Can't say I am surprised.
This wasn't just an off-year from a young player who needed a little more hands-on coaching though. This was a kid who desperately wanted out of MLS to play at a higher level, had felt that way for over 18 months, and had at least one opportunity to do so fall through. I don't think even Jesse could have kept his head on straight through 2019.
