Just over two months after signing Aaron Murray, the Rams have waived the quarterback, according to ESPN’s Field Yates (on Twitter).
Once a star at Georgia, Murray fell to the sixth round of the 2014 draft after an ACL injury brought an early end to his senior season. Murray spent the first two years of his career in the Chiefs organization before serving on Philadelphia’s practice squad last season. He still hasn’t attempted an NFL pass.
Had he stuck with the Rams through the summer, Murray would have competed for a backup role behind 2016 No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff. For now, the only non-Goff quarterback on the Rams’ roster is Sean Mannion, a 2015 third-rounder with 13 pass attempts under his belt.
