There are many funny stories in the NFL offseason.
Jacksonville Jaguars’ RB fell into the pool after sleeping on wheels. This time, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Louis Murphy woke up in a locked museum following a night of celebrating at a wedding.
The wedding was for Murphy’s former Florida Gators teammate Deonte Thompson. It was being held at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach Florida. Murphy told police that he had a bit drinks all night and fell asleep on the stairs. When he woke up, everyone was gone and the museum’ doors were locked. He had to break the window to attract the attention of the police.
“This was really just a series of small unfortunate circumstances,” Murphy said in a statement. “With no one around, my only option was to break a small glass pane of the door in order to access a phone and call for help. I dialed the police and explained that I needed assistance. It’s unfortunate that I needed to break the glass, but the police officers on the scene and museum staff acknowledged that I didn’t have many other options. I’m working with the museum to ensure everything is properly handled.”
Louis Murphy has played seven seasons in the NFL, and spent his last two season in Tampa. The former Gator has amassed 2,322 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns in his career.
