All contracts involving first-round selections include a fifth-year team option.
Murphy, who was taken with the 28th overall pick, became the third first-round selection of the 2023 NFL Draft to sign a contract. Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter, the No. 9 pick, agreed to terms on May 4 and Seattle Seahawks wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba, the 20th overall selection, signed on Thursday.
