Report: Byron Murphy agrees to two-year deal with Vikings
The Vikings have their replacement for Patrick Peterson.
A day after losing Peterson to the Steelers, the Vikings have agreed to a two-year, $22 million deal with cornerback Byron Murphy, NFL Media reports.
Murphy ranks 62nd on PFT’s list of top-100 free agents.
His departure leaves Marco Wilson as the top corner in Arizona.
Murphy, 25, joined the Cardinals as a second round pick in 2019, and he made 48 starts in four seasons.
He played only nine games last season because of a back injury that landed him on injured reserve. Murphy made 36 tackles, half a sack and four pass breakups.
He has 229 tackles, three sacks, five interceptions and 34 pass breakups.
