  • Titans' Sean Murphy-Bunting: Big role in Tennessee

    Murphy-Bunting recorded 57 total tackles, eight passes defended (including two interceptions) and two forced fumbles across 14 regular-season games with the Titans in 2023. Murphy-Bunting joined the Titans on a one-year deal before the 2023 season, and he topped 800 defensive snaps for the second time in his five-year career. He also logged a career high in tackles and matched his career high in passes defended, setting him up well to enter the free-agent market once again this offseason.

  • Buccaneers' Sean Murphy-Bunting: Solid season in 2022

    Murphy-Bunting finished the 2022 regular season with 31 tackles (19 solo), two interceptions, five additional pass breakups and one forced fumble across 12 games. The fourth-year defensive back added six tackles (four solo) during the wild-card loss to the Cowboys. Murphy-Bunting missed five games overall due to quadriceps injuries, but by the numbers, he turned in his most effective season in coverage yet. Murphy-Bunting surrendered a paltry 37.5 percent completion rate and 3.9 yards per attempt as a primary defender across 411 defensive snaps, and both his interception and total pass-breakups tallies ranked as the second-highest marks of his career. An unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, Murphy-Bunting could garner an high-priced deal on the open market as an up-and-coming cornerback.

The tackle tally was also a season high for the fourth-year cornerback, but as long as he's slotting into a rotational role, his overall IDP production will be capped.
