Murphy was inside that car along with his brother. Sources said Murphy was questioned and released by police. However, his brother and the suspected prostitute were cited.
Murphy grew up in Oakland and attended Oakland Tech. The rookie was drafted in the seventh round out of Oregon State last year by the Seattle Seahawks before being waived in September. He was picked up by the Broncos and added to their practice squad a month later.
Murphy was a seventh-round pick out of Oregon State by the Seahawks in 2015, later joining the Broncos practice squad.
