I think this decision is a horrible one. Terrence is an amazing athlete and a great person. He has more determination than anyone I know and the potential to be the BEST. It's a shame that he won't be on the field.

I agree,Terrence Murphy seemed to get the bum end of the stick. Is he really not in the physical condition to play? Will terrence play anywhere else?

Guys, if the medical staff thought he could play without the danger of injury and potential paralysis, he would be playing for the Packers. They did not want to assume that reponsibility. He is free to join any other team, but I don't think anyone will give him the opportunity to play. It would not be the right thing to do.

After the Packers cut Murphy he had to go through waivers, and nobody claimed him. Now he is free to sign with anyone, and nobody has shown interest yet. With the shortage of WRs this year you would have thought someone would have given him a chance. That probably means most of the teams feel the same way about his injury.

Shawn, he is unable to walk, he will never play on a team again. Better sell your eTopps cards while you can on eTopps.com or CardTarget.com the moron CardEater is looking to buy as many as possible, I say lets give him all of them.

It is a shame about Murphy, not only because he could have helped the Packers, but even more so because he seemed like a decent guy with talent and now he has to give up something that he probably loved to do.

T.Murph was A.Rodgers' good friend on the team. It's sad that they just let him go when it was their team that injured him.

What a lot of people forget is the NFL is a game of numbers and money. Green Bay made business decisions along with the well being of Murphy in mind, but rest assure the man is a freakish athlete, and you have not seen the last of him.

Once the doctors decided that Murphy should never play again, there was no reason to keep him and have him take up a roster spot. If another team signs him, they are doing him no favor.

I am a personal friend to Murphy's family and I will tell all of you this.... Murphy is in good condition and will play football again. Green Bay put the screws to him. Phosegene obviously you don't know him and I dont know where you got your info from. Terrence is walking fine. He is in great shape and has high hopes of playing football again.

T.Murph and Aaron Rodgers were good friends. Wish they could've played more together.

Sheripreston, the Packers have a dire need for a good receiver, especially now that Walker is gone. They were hoping more than ever that Terrence Murphy would be able to play. It makes no sense for them to "put the screws to him" as you say. For the Packers or any other NFL team to put him on the field would be irresponsible. Do you really want him to suffer an another injury that would paralyze him for life? Not if you are the friend that you claim to be. No, he will not play football again.

I've said here before that I thought Murphy could have been every bit as good as Walker if he had the chance. Unfortunatley, his injury will prevent that. I understand that he may walk just fine and is a tremendous athlete, but all it takes is one hit like he received last season and it could be devestating. Better to keep his health and live a long, full life than take the chance of being stuck in a wheelchair the rest of his life. I believe I speak for all here when I say we wish him all the best. I don't want to see him take the chance.

I have to agree with Packrat. It really is a shame that his career was cut short by this injury. Based on what was written and said about him, he seems to have the character that the Packers are looking for as well as the talent. But better, I think, to be content in knowing he was good enough to play professional football, even for the short time, that take the chance of never being able to walk again. I hope he can enjoy a full life, get married, have kids and be able to play with them and doesn't try to come back.

Packrat is right!!!!!!!Terrence is 1 good shot from paralysis.He has a collage ed. and a year of n.f.l. salery,not including if the packers gave him anything after they cut him or any insurance terrence had.I t wouldnt be worth itto play,but,perhaps he can coach a small collage or get a job in his major.Terrence had to know he was taking a chance when he went to the n.f.l.

best of luck Terrence.

Why is there another non-Packer fan who really doesn't seem to have anything to say posting silly comments here?

If making new friends is your goal Wang, then you are going about it the wrong way. You made a mistake when you took NC Packer Fan's comments the wrong way. There was nothing hateful in what he said. You must understand that this website is for Packer fans, and you said you are a Bears fan. The Bears are the team we Packer fans hate the most. You should not have taken his comments personally, and you should not have made that nasty little comment that you made.

You're absolutely right. I hate idiots who live in this country, but won't learn how to communicate in the official language. I hate worthless individuals who talk trash just to try and piss people off. I hate people who offer absolutely no worthwhile ideas. And I have no patience for jerk-offs who visit a Web site to cause problems and have no understanding of the subject matter.
