Redskins signed DB Jerome Murphy.
Murphy has been with the Rams, Saints, and Lions since the start of training camp. He's played mostly corner since being drafted at the top of the third round in 2010, but he may play some safety with Brandon Meriweather (torn ACL) out for the year. Mon, Nov 19, 2012 10:28:00 PM

Lions released CB Jerome Murphy.

Murphy failed to appear in a game with the Lions after being claimed off waivers. SS Ricardo Silva was signed from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move.

Lions claimed CB Jerome Murphy off waivers from the Saints and waived CB Kevin Barnes.

The Lions gave Barnes 14 defensive snaps before bailing on him. They had dealt undisclosed future compensation to the Redskins in exchange for him late last month. Murphy lasted just two weeks with his old coach, Steve Spagnuolo, in New Orleans.

Saints waived CB Jerome Murphy.

It's not a good sign for Murphy's long-term NFL outlook that old pal Steve Spagnuolo cut him after a 15-day trial run. Murphy is now eligible to be claimed off waivers elsewhere. He was the 65th overall pick in the 2010 draft.

Saints claimed CB Jerome Murphy off waivers from the Rams.

The 65th overall pick in the 2010 draft reunites with Steve Spagnuolo, who helped draft Murphy out of South Florida three Aprils ago. Murphy is a physical corner who couldn't stay healthy in St. Louis, but can play press coverage and zone coverage and should already have a solid grasp on New Orleans' defense. He'll push Johnny Patrick and Corey White for snaps in sub-packages.

Rams waived CB Jerome Murphy.

A third-round pick in 2010, Murphy appeared in 14 games as a rookie, but spent 2011 on injured reserve with a broken ankle. His draft pedigree should earn him some looks on the waiver wire.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 05:50:00 PM

Rams placed CB Jerome Murphy on injured reserve with a fractured ankle, ending his season.

The 65th overall pick in the 2010 draft, Murphy was expected to challenge for a nickel and dime back role before breaking the ankle early in camp. He had one pick and 21 tackles in 14 appearances as a rookie. Murphy's placement on I.R. leaves St. Louis' fifth cornerback job up for grabs. The Rams will likely look for an alternative at final cutdowns this weekend.

After visiting Rams camp this week, SI's Jim Trotter came away with the impression that CB Jerome Murphy (fractured ankle) is "sidelined for the season."

Murphy underwent surgery on Wednesday. We suspected he was done, but the Rams haven't made a roster move yet. Per Trotter, St. Louis is counting on Justin King to emerge as the new nickel back behind Ron Bartell and Bradley Fletcher.

Rams CB Jerome Murphy will have surgery Wednesday to repair his fractured ankle.

Fractured ankles often involve leg damage as well, but the exact extent of Murphy's injury is unclear. The Rams will decide whether to place Murphy on I.R. at a later date. He was the 65th overall pick in last year's draft, but earned his way onto the field for under 200 defensive snaps as a rookie.
Tue, Aug 9, 2011 08:54:00 PM

Rams CB Jerome Murphy could be sidelined for up to 10 weeks after breaking his ankle on Friday.

He'll need surgery. A third-round pick in 2010, Murphy tallied 30 tackles and one interception in 14 games as a rookie. Murphy is not eligible for the PUP list since he began camp on the active roster, so the Rams are going to have to decide if he's worth waiting on for the first few weeks of the season or if he's a candidate for injured reserve.
Sat, Aug 6, 2011 05:19:00 PM

The Rams have not considered moving 2010 third-round pick Jerome Murphy to safety.

St. Louis has at least one glaring hole at safety, but coach Steve Spagnuolo has never valued the position highly, and isn't about to move last year's 65th overall pick off a more valuable position. Perhaps the Rams would reconsider if a corner like Prince Amukamara fell into their laps at No. 14 overall.
Tue, Mar 15, 2011 06:55:00 PM

Rams CB Jerome Murphy broke a pinkie finger in Sunday's game, but coach Steve Spagnuolo expects the rookie to play through the injury.

"We think he'll be able to just wrap it up and play with it, but we'll have to see," said Spags. "I told him he still has nine fingers. He's a tough guy. He played with it yesterday." A third-round pick, Murphy has been a reliable tackler in his rookie season, but he's got work to do in coverage.
Tue, Dec 28, 2010 10:46:00 AM

Rams' S Jerome Murphy and WR Brandon McRae will both be sidelined for the week with lateral ankle sprains.

Murphy is expected to start the season at dimeback, while McRae looks to be a practice squad player.
Sun, Aug 15, 2010 02:00:00 PM

Rams third-round DB Jerome Murphy was arrested and charged with driving without a valid license on Saturday.

The incident happened near South Florida's campus, where Murphy went to school. He was booked and released after posting $250 bond. It's a very minor incident and shouldn't be held against the Rams' dimeback in any way.
Sun, Jul 25, 2010 10:38:00 AM

Rams signed third-round DB Jerome Murphy to a four-year, $2.728 million contract.

A three-year starter at South Florida, Murphy is a physical corner with an intriguing size/speed package. In addition to bringing solid press coverage skills, Murphy is the rare corner that excels in run support. He's expected to start off as the Rams' dimeback as a rookie.
