New Orleans Saints Claim CB Jerome Murphy off of Waivers; Waive CB Elbert Mack

The New Orleans Saints’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced today the team has claimed CB Jerome Murphy off of waivers from the St. Louis Rams and released CB Elbert Mack.

Murphy, 6-0, 200, is a third-year cornerback from the University of South Florida, who originally was a third round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in the 2010 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, the Elizabeth, N.J. native played in 14 games for the Rams and posted 30 tackles (17 solo), one interception, two pass defenses, seven special teams stops and one special teams fumble recovery. He missed the entire 2011 season with an ankle injury. Murphy started 25 of 52 career games in his college career for the Bulls, tallying 202 tackles (148 solo), eight interceptions, 18 pass defenses, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He departed USF with his 52 games played the most by a USF player.

a lot of movement in the CB market this weekend
the Spagnoulo connection was obviously a factor

Also don't forget that the rams were down to their 6th CB last season due to injuries, so this guy probably got quite abit of playing time

No, he missed the entire last season due to an ankle injury, so he was one of those dozen Rams' DBs to hit the IR last season.

Like you guys said, it's good to see Spags bring in these guys that formerly played under him because they won't have to make that many adjustments in order to fit in.

Thats it. They both are probably equal in talent right now, but Murphy probably has more potential.

I kind of liked Mack, but I like that we are constantly upgrading.
