Broncos practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was questioned as part of a prostitution sting on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. CBS San Francisco reports that the sting took place in northern San Jose, about a 10 minute drive from the 49ers’ stadium, the site of Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. While Murphy wasn’t arrested or cited, his brother was cited:
According to sources, police detained a suspected prostitute in the area of a Motel 6 at North First Street and Brokaw. The woman told task force members that she had to go to a car to retrieve some property.
Murphy was inside that car along with his brother. Sources said Murphy was questioned and released by police. However, his brother and the suspected prostitute were cited.
According to the San Jose Mercury-News, Murphy’s brother was cited for solicitation.
Murphy was a star at (relatively) nearby Oakland Tech, before playing four years at Oregon State. He was drafted in 2015 in the seventh round by the Seahawks, before being waived. He was added to the Broncos roster in November, but has yet to play an NFL game.
Update (10:02 p.m.): The Broncos have sent Murphy back home to Denver.
