Dolphins sign rookie Shawn Murphy

[Editor's Note by Matty I] As I type this note, it's currently 4:30 pm EDT.  And right now, there are no other reports of the Dolphins signing Murphy.  So take the below KFFL report with a grain of salt and wait to hear further confirmation.  And if anyone sees, hears, or reads a report that talks about Murphy potentially having his deal done with the Fins, please post it in the comments. [end note]

[UPDATE 4:49 pm] The Miami Herald is now also reporting that the Dolphins have signed Murphy with an official announcement coming shortly. [end update]

[UPDATE #2] And here's the info on the signing from the team's official site. [end update]

According to a report on KFFL.com, the Dolphins have signed rookie guard Shawn Murphy to a contract.  The terms are unknown at this point.

This isn't surprising, considering the Dolphins had 2 new roster spots cleared following the waiving of Tab Perry and the retirement of undrafted free agent Kory Robertson (which still hasn't been officially announced by the team).  Murphy, a 4th round pick, is expected to battle for the starting guard job opposite of Justin Smiley.  You'll remember that the pick used to get Murphy was the one Miami received from Philadelphia for Lorenzo Booker.

The Dolphins now have just 3 remaining draft picks to sign.  Those are 2nd rounders Phillip Merling and Chad Henne, and 3rd round pick Kendall Langford.
