Former NFL player Eugene Robinson warned players with the Carolina Panthers about congregating with prostitutes during the week leading up to the Super Bowl.

Robinson did just that back in 1999 as a member of the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl team who lost to Denver. However, he may have given the wrong team advice. He should have warned the Broncos instead.

The Denver Broncos organization ordered rookie safety Ryan Murphy, who is on the team’s practice squad, back to Denver on Tuesday after San Jose police questioned him about his involvement in a prostitution raid.

“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.

Santa Clara County’s multi-agency human trafficking task force conducted the sting. According to CBS News, police officers arrested a suspected prostitute near a Motel 6.

The woman claimed she had to retrieve an item in her car. When officers approached the vehicle, they found Murphy was inside with his brother inside.

After authorities had questioned the Broncos safety, he was promptly released. However, his brother and the alleged prostitute were cited.

Head coach Gary Kubiak said Murphy’s practice squad status had not changed.
