Murray has been out of football since May 2017, when he was waived by the Los Angeles Rams. The former Bulldogs signal-caller had also spent time with the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles after being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Despite never appearing in an NFL game, Murray was one of the most prolific college quarterbacks of all time. He completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 13,166 yards and 121 touchdowns as a four-year starter at Georgia, and he still holds the SEC record for career touchdowns.
Now Murray will see if he can revive his career in Atlanta.
