He paid $2,000 bond and was released on Wednesday afternoon.

Murphy did not play in a single game during the 2016 season after being injured during the preseason. He was then released by the team in November.

During the 2014 and 2015 seasons with the Buccaneers, he played in 17 games. He had 41 receptions for 578 yards and two touchdowns.

He began his career with the Oakland Raiders, where he played the first three-years. He then spent a season each with the Carolina Panthers and the New York Giants before going to Tampa Bay.
