Earlier this week, coach John Harbaugh told reporters that the team is casting a wide net as it looks into the possibility of adding another quarterback. While he and GM Ozzie Newsome are reportedly pushing team owner Steve Bisciotti to add Colin Kaepernick, the team is also looking into some less-heralded options as well. The Ravens have interest in bringing in quarterback Aaron Murray, sources tell Dianna Russini of ESPN.com.
Murray, the Chiefs’ fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft, was cut loose by KC before the 2016 season. Since then, he has had stints with the Cardinals, Eagles, and Rams, but he has yet to throw a pass in an NFL game and has been out of work since his release from L.A. in May.
The attention being paid to Murray will certainly irk those who would rather see the Ravens take a look at Kaepernick. On Tuesday, Murray signed on with CBS to work as an announcer on college football games, so it’s not even clear whether Murray is 100% committed to continuing his playing career.
