The 28-year-old Tampa, Florida native last played organized football in 2015 with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was with the Chiefs in 2014 and 2015.

Murray was the Chiefs fifth-round draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Despite being on the Chiefs roster, he never played in an NFL game.

He played for the Bulldogs from 2010 through 2013. He went 922 of 1,478 for 13,166 yards in 52 games.

Murray also had 121 touchdowns. He had 41 interceptions.

The Alliance of American Football is slated to make its debut in February 2019. The season is slated to kick off one week after Super Bowl LIII.


There are only eight teams, all in the South, Midwest or West Coast. The Legends will play their games at the Georgia State Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.


The team is also the only franchise at this time in Georgia. Brad Childress is the team’s head coach, while former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is the offensive coordinator.
