Aaron Wilson is reporting that the Lions brought in WR Tyler Murphy for a workout on Friday.
Murphy, 24, signed on with the Steelers back in as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College. He’s in the first year of his four-year, $1.579 million rookie contract included a $4,500 signing bonus.
Murphy was waived a month into the season to make room for RB Le’Veon Bell, who has been reinstated from his suspension. After that, Murphy was on and off of the Steelers’ practice squad.
The Dolphins elected to sign Murphy to a future/reserve contract in January, but waived him with an injury designation back in April to make room for LB Danny Lansanah. Miami later cut him loose from injured reserve with a settlement.
In 2015, Murphy appeared in two games and caught one pass for 16 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
