Chiefs Release QB Aaron Murray, Will Dallas Be Interested?

    Final roster cuts have begun in the National Football League, and the will have their eyes on players that get released that could help fill some final . Among those needs once again, thanks to 's in Seattle, is depth at behind now-starter .

    “auditioned” for the primary backup role last night against the Texans, and was anything but reassuring in the loss. The Cowboys obviously understand that Showers was playing entirely with backups, and any they can make at this point for a third QB would likely do little to save the Cowboys season from a similar fate suffered in 2015 should Prescott go down.

    Still, one intriguing name just became available, as the QB-heavy moved on from 2014 fifth round pick Aaron Murray out of Georgia. While Murray does not fill the void the Cowboys have for a veteran backup with experience, his traits out of college make him an interesting option.

    Murray still holds the SEC record for passing yards and touchdowns. This , Murray appeared in three games for Kansas City, failing to throw a touchdown while tossing three interceptions. Most recently, he completed 10 passes on 18 attempts against the Packers for 108 yards. Basically, he is a Murray with some potential should he come wear the silver and blue, as he hails from the same conference that Dak Prescott dominated on his way to becoming the greatest Dallas Cowboy of all time a rookie sensation.

    The Dallas Cowboys want to stay relevant at all costs until Tony Romo is ready to potentially give it one more go around for the . With a star studded , dominant , and plenty of talent at and , Aaron Murray may just be the missing piece to make that happen.

    Dallas has the fourth priority on the wire, which puts them ahead of the , who recently lost starting QB for the season. Only time will tell if they put it to use on Murray, or another quarterback that ends up without a job.

    The reality on Murray is he is a developmental project as is Jameil Showers and as truly is Dak Prescott. I say we stay focused on a true veteran with NFL experience. Murray is a crap shoot.

    Help no there is talent out there cheap Mike Vick with great of line

    If Kansas City release QB Aaron Murray Cowboys should get him because he is better QB than any other QBs he is good fast and play a lot better than Mark Sanchez from Denver.. If I am coach for Dallas I will get Aaron Murray for Cowboys.
