Murphy’s four-year contract is worth an estimated $4,472,798 and includes a signing bonus of $1,572,944, according to OverTheCap.com.
Murphy was a bit of a surprising selection given that many assumed Washington would look to upgrade either their offense or defensive line with their first pick in the draft.
At Stanford, Murphy totaled 160 tackles, 52.5 tackles for loss, 32.5 sacks, two interceptions and three forced fumbles.
