With leading receiver Victor Cruz still unsigned, the New York Giants have added Murphy.||||||| The Giants on Tuesday confirmed the signing of the speedy receiver who played last season with Carolina. The five-year veteran has 115 receptions for 1,707 yards and seven touchdowns, including 25 catches with the Panthers in 2012. Murphy was Oakland's fourth-round draft choice in 2009. As a rookie, he scored four touchdowns.
Posted Dec. 13, 2010
Murphy had six receptions for 59 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.||||||| Murphy was targeted a season-high 11 times.
Posted Sept. 27, 2010
Murphy had another impressive performance in Sunday's 24-23 loss to Arizona, catching five balls for a game-high 119 yards.||||||| Murphy seems to be emerging as the Raiders No. 1 receiver, and if he's still around in your free agent pool, you may want to think about snatching him up.
Posted Sept. 20, 2010
Murphy had six catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 16-14 win over St. Louis on Sunday.||||||| Murphy has shown the most promise of the Raiders' young receivers, and seems to have clicked with backup Bruce Gradkowski. Monitor Tom Cable's choice at QB before definitely going with Murphy, but the young wideout should be able to get open against Arizona's secondary.

Murphy is being held out of training camp practice with a concussion.||||||| Murphy says he got hurt when he was kneed in the helmet by teammate Nnamdi Asomugha during practice Friday. He has a bad headache and missed practice Saturday. Coach Tom Cable says Murphy will not return until he passes a series of tests that shows he has recovered. Murphy is being counted on heavily in his second year in the NFL. He led all Raiders wideouts with 34 catches for 521 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie last season.
