Aaron Murray Signs Four-Year Contract With Kansas City

Former UGA quarterback Aaron Murray has signed a four-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, the team officially announced today.

Murray was selected by the Chiefs in the fifth-round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Kansas City’s current starting quarterback is Alex Smith. He is currently under contract through the 2014 season and an extension has been talked about, according to Pro Football Talk.

If Murray is deemed fully recovered from his ACL year, he will compete with former Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray for the No. 3 spot. But the most likely scenario seems to be that KC may keep Murray on ten sidelines until 2015.

Former Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel is the current No. 2 QB for the Chiefs.

From the Chiefs release:

Murray (6-0, 201) started all 52 games at Georgia and became the first player in both the SEC and Georgia’s history to throw for over 3,000 yards in four consecutive seasons. He completed 921-of-1,478 passes (62.3%) for 13,166 yards, 121 touchdowns and 41 interceptions and carried the ball 286 times for 396 yards and 16 touchdowns. His 13,166 passing yards and 121 passing TDs also top the SEC all-time charts. The Tampa, Fla., native prepped at Plant High School where he earned first-team all-state honors.
