The Los Angeles Rams have signed former Kansas City backup quarterback Aaron Murray, according to his agency SportsTrust.
Murray was drafted in the 5th round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs after a decorated college career with the Georgia Bulldogs. During his time at Georgia, Murray became the SEC all time leader in passing yards and touchdowns. Murray has yet to take a snap in the NFL. Murray spent 2016 on the Eagles practice squad after being released by the Chiefs during final roster cuts.
While it doesn’t seem like Murray will be more than a third quarterback or a camp body, this signing seems to signal the end of the Case Keenum era, as the Rams are unlikely to part ways with either Sean Mannion or Jared Goff. Keenum appeared in 16 games during his time with the Rams and was the starter for the Rams first win back in Los Angeles.
