SAN FRANCISCO — If only Eugene Robinson was a broadcaster for the Broncos instead of the Panthers, the Broncos might not be dealing with an embarrassing story.
Robinson warned the Panthers about messing around with prostitutes during Super Bowl week, which he famously did back in 1999 when he was on the Falcons Super Bowl team. But it was the Broncos who needed the warning.
Broncos rookie safety Ryan Murphy, a member of the team’s practice squad, was sent back to Denver, the team said, after he was questioned Tuesday by San Jose police in a prostitution sting.
“Although practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was not cited by police, we decided it was best for the team if we continued our preparations for Super Bowl 50 without him,” coach Gary Kubiak said.
