The world is yucking it up this week over Murphy, the former receiver of the Tampa Bay Bucs who was arrested for having a loaded Glock in his backpack as he went to the airport. Murphy, 29, says he forgot it was there. According to Murphy, he was hiding the gun from his daughter (hint: a better hiding place might be advisable.) and it slipped his mind that it was there.
It happens. Former Buc Hugh Greene was once arrested for having a gun in his luggage.
“I want to apologize to all my family, friends and fans,” Murphy said in a post on Instagram. “I hid my gun from my daughter in my book bag. A week later, I left to the airport rushing, I forgot I put it in my book bag. It was an honest mistake. Again, I sincerely apologize.”
Murphy played 17 games with the Bucs and caught 41 passes before being injured. He is currently a free agent.
