Chiefs sign former UGA QB Murray to contract

KANSAS CITY, Mo. | The Chiefs have signed quarterback Aaron Murray, their fifth-round pick, leaving only first-round pick Dee Ford among their unsigned players from this year’s draft.

The Chiefs announced the signing Wednesday. They open a three-day rookie minicamp Saturday.

Murray was considered a first-round talent a year ago, but he had this past season cut short by a torn ligament in his knee. The former Georgia star is also considered small for the position, standing 6-foot and weighing about 200 pounds.

Still, the Chiefs believe Murray could push second-year pro Tyler Bray for the No. 3 job, and perhaps even supplant Chase Daniel as the backup to starter Alex Smith.
