Report: Bucs Hosting WR Louis MurphyMarch 18th, 2014
The Bucs are digging deep into the NFL barrel in search of receiving help, so it seems. And that’s what happens when your team spends a fortune in free agency on other positions and relied on Kevin Ogletree, Tiquan Underwood and Chris Owusu six months ago.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is Twittering this afternoon that the Bucs are visiting with veteran wide receiver Louis Murphy, the former Florida Gator who spent three seasons in Oakland before catching 25 passes with Carolina in 2012, and six with the Giants last year.
Joe doesn’t see Murphy as an attractive, dangerous option to become the Bucs’ No. 3 receiver, but he certainly represents an experienced, young (26) body to fight for a roster spot.
