NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The Saints have waived running back and returner Marcus Murphy. The Saints drafted Murphy in the seventh round in the 2015 draft.

Murphy showed promise his rookie season as a returner. He averaged nine yards a return and scored a touchdown. He also averaged 25 yards per return on kickoffs. He fell out of favor in 2016 and only had six punt returns.
