Bucs, Louis Murphy Agree To Extension

The Buccaneers have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with wide receiver Louis Murphy, according to Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com (on Twitter).

Murphy, 27 (28 by the start of next season), has hauled in 31 catches for 380 yards and two touchdowns this season. Over the course of his six year career, which has also included time with the Raiders, Panthers, and Giants, Murphy has 152 career receptions for 2,124 yards and 10 touchdowns. The advanced metrics at ProFootballFocus (subscription required) aren’t all that impressed with his play this year, however. Murphy grades out as one of the worst wide receivers eligible for measure – he’s No. 106 out of 113 with a -9.2 overall rating.

The former Florida Gator was moved to the injured reserve list on December 15th, along with teammates Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Gerald McCoy. The speedster’s ankle will be good to go in 2015.
