Report: Byron Murphy agrees to two-year deal with Vikings

Mike Florio and Chris Simms reflect on Bud Grant’s legacy, after the iconic Vikings head coach died at age 95, and honor all his contributions to the NFL.

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.
