Broncos send former Seahawk home from Super Bowl after reportedly being questioned in prostitution sting
A former Seattle Seahawk and current Denver Bronco, Ryan Murphy, was questioned Tuesday evening during a prostitution sting in San Jose, according to CBS News.
A Santa Clara County multi-agency human trafficking task force conducted a prostitution sting Feb. 2 and detained a woman as a result. That suspected prostitute told police she had personal items in a nearby car. In that car, police found Murphy along with his brother.
Murphy was questioned and then released by police. The woman and Murphy’s brother were cited, CBS reports.
Murphy’s time with the Seahawks was brief.
He was a seventh-round pick out of Oregon State in last year’s draft. Seattle waived him in September. Murphy later joined the Broncos’ practice squad.
According to a statement from Broncos coach Gary Kubiak, Murphy has been sent home. The Broncos are in the San Francisco Bay Area preparing for Super Bowl 50, which will be played at the 49ers’ stadium in Santa Clara.
Murphy grew up in Oakland.
