Murray was released by the Rams on Thursday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Murray signed with the Rams back in March and was expected to be the team's third option at quarterback behind Jared Goff and Sean Mannion. Murray hasn't seen the field during his first three seasons and will look to catch on as a backup with another club in 2017.
Murray officially signed with the Rams on Thursday.
Murray was reported to be signing with the Rams and his signing on Thursday just makes things official. He'll be the team's third-string quarterback behind Jared Goff and Sean Mannion.
Murray was reportedly put on the trade block prior to his release Friday and will now be free to sign with any interested team. After the Chiefs signed Nick Foles to replace Chase Daniel as Alex Smith's backup, and drafted Kevin Hogan, Murray's job and pegging on the depth chart was cast into question. Although Murray ultimately was sent packing, he embodies an interesting developmental option for teams in need at quarterback.
With multiple teams shopping the backup quarterback market (notably the Cowboys and Vikings), they could do worse than the third-year signal caller. Unfortunately, he didn't have the greatest of showings in the team's preseason finale, going just 10-for-18 for 108 yards while tossing two interceptions. Tyler Bray appears the heavy favorite to earn the third quarterback spot for Kansas City, so the club will attempt to get something for Murray before they need to cut him.
