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's in line to be the team's third-string quarterback behind Jared Goff and Sean Mannion.
Murray is slated to sign with the Rams on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Murray has yet to complete a pass in his three-year NFL career, so he is presumably being brought on as a reserve option for the Rams at quarterback.
The Chiefs have placed Murray on the trading block prior to cuts Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. 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.
Murray will enter training camp as one of three quarterbacks (along with Tyler Bray and Kevin Hogan) in competition for the backup job. Murray and Bray both took some reps as the No. 2 quarterback during minicamp, putting the two in position as the favorites for the backup job ahead of the rookie signal-caller (Hogan). It's unlikely Hogan will be given the boot in his first season, making it plausible either Murray or Bray will wind up losing out on a 53-man roster spot after losing the competition.
