The Kevin Murphy era ends before it began

Posted by: under Roster moves, Vikings, Vikings draft Updated: May 17, 2012 - 10:54 AM

The Vikings have announced two roster moves this morning, waiving offensive lineman Kevin Murphy and cornerback C.C. Whitlock.

Murphy? Well, the Vikings had just claimed him off waivers on Tuesday atfer the 49ers let him go. Apparently his work with the team Wednesday must not have been too impressive.

Whitlock, meanwhile, is a 5-foot-10, 181-pound defensive back who played his college ball at South Carolina. He was one of 15 undrafted free agents the Vikings signed immediately after the draft ended.
