Bucs Sign WR Louis MurphyMarch 26th, 2014
The Bucs added veteran talent — a Lovie Smith trademark — to their receiving corps today.
After a visit earlier this month, Louis Murphy is now a Buccaneer. The former Florida Gator 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. And no, this doesn’t spell doom and gloom for Mike Williams.
Joe is pleased. Murphy should be an upgrade — at least — to Chris Owusu and others at the bottom of the Bucs’ receiving depth chart last year.
