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.
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.
Murphy (knee) will be placed on injured reserve, ruling him out of playing this season, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Murphy, who tore his ACL last October, suffered a setback after returning to practice three weeks ago, leaving him unable to be activated from the PUP list within the required 21-day window. As a result, the veteran will revert to Tampa Bay's injured reserve list, ruling out any game action for him this season. In the wake of Murphy's roster decision Monday, the Buccaneers signed fellow wideout Josh Huff to their practice squad.
