The Redskins have signed defensive back Jerome Murphy, according to media reports. He will take the roster spot vacated when Brandon Meriweather was put on season-ending injured reserve with a torn ACL.

We have seen Murphy already this year. He played 29 snaps at cornerback for the Saints in the season opener and had three tackles.

Murphy, 25, was a third-round draft pick of the Rams in 2010. The South Florida product played nine games for St. Louis as a rookie. He did not play in 2011.

Murphy also spent some time with the Lions earlier this year. He also has the ability to play safety.
