The Buccaneers released Murphy (knee) from the PUP list Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Since tearing his ACL in October of 2015, Murphy has meandered through his recovery. Upon opening his window for a return on Oct. 17 of this year, he suffered a setback and was ruled out for the season. Now free to sign with any team, he's a better bet to land on a practice squad than anything.
