Murphy was released by the 49ers on Friday.
The 30-year-old Murphy did very little to make a case for a roster spot this summer and will now re-enter the free-agent pool.
Murphy hauled in a pass for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Broncos.
The veteran wideout finished with the most snaps among all 49er receivers Saturday with 23. The 30-year-old has dealt with issues on and off the field this past offseason, but with his knee injury and arrest behind him, Murphy will look to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster in San Francisco.
Murphy (knee) joined the 49ers on a one-year deal Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The 30-year-old wideout will look to revive his career after missing the entire 2016 season with a torn ACL. Murphy was also dealing with off-the-field issues following his April 12 arrest at Tampa International Airport for possession of a concealed weapon. Those charges have since been dropped, freeing the veteran to enter the receiver mix in San Francisco for training camp. Murphy has experienced sporadic success in limited roles throughout his career, but he will have to prove that his knee is fully healthy while attempting to leapfrog several other options on the depth chart to have a shot at making the 49ers' 53-man roster.
Murphy (knee ) won't face any charges stemming from his April 12 arrest at Tampa International Airport for possessing a loaded gun, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Shortly after the arrest, Murphy issued an apology indicating that bringing the gun to the airport was an "honest mistake," and the state attorney's office ultimately decided to close the case. The 29-year-old, who sat out all of last season while recovering from a torn ACL, remains an unrestricted free agent.
Murphy (knee) was arrested Wednesday on charges of allegedly carrying a concealed weapon into Tampa International Airport, Greg Auman of The Tampa Bay Times reports.
Murphy is currently a free agent who missed the 2016 season due to an ACL injury suffered in 2015. While it isn't clear if he's recovered at this point in time or still on the mend, Wednesday's incident should only make it more difficult for him to land a new contract ahead of the 2017 campaign.
