After the lopsided playoff loss a in January to the San Diego Chargers, rumors of a soured relationship with the Cincinnati Bengals and QB Andy Dalton began to swirl even faster. With this, it’s a possibility that the team could be looking to grab themselves a signal caller in this May’s NFL Draft. And, could that quarterback be the SEC’s all-time leading passer, Georgia’s Aaron Murray?
As Carlos Holmes of the Dayton Daily News points out, the Bengals and Marvin Lewis have shown an affinity for Georgia players recently and says that Murray could be the next target.
In all likelihood, Cincinnati will draft a quarterback and create competition at the position. The Bengals have shown a fondness for Georgia players and Murray likely would be a contender for the backup position behind Andy Dalton.
Murray, who did not work out at the recent NFL Scouting Combine while he rehabs from a torn knee ligament he suffered at the end of the 2013 season, is still on the radar of NFL teams with just his college resume alone.
Plus, you have to admit, it would be fun to watch him throw passes to former teammate and one of the best receivers in the NFL right now, A.J. Green.
