The Los Angeles Rams this offseason are looking at many different options to improving the roster heading into the 2017 season.
With that in mind, the Rams have reportedly signed veteran quarterback Aaron Murray to a deal, according to his sports agency.
Murray was originally selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs and has yet to take the field in any regular season game through his first three campaigns in the league. He had spent the last two years as an offseason and practice squad player for the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles.
The 26-year-old will have a chance to compete for a roster spot as the third quarterback on the depth chart and possibly challenge Sean Mannion for the backup gig behind Jared Goff in training camp. Along with that, this move likely signals the end of Case Keenum 's tenure with the team as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent on Thursday afternoon.
Murray had an extremely productive collegiate career at Georgia where he holds the SEC records with 121 touchdowns pass and 13,166 passing yards. Another interesting note in that regard is that he played alongside the Rams' All-Pro running back Todd Gurley for two seasons.
