2014 NFL Draft: Kansas City Chiefs sign QB Aaron Murray

Kansas City has locked up Murray, who will compete for a backup role with Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray.

The Kansas City Chiefs signed rookie quarterback Aaron Murray out of the University of Georgia on Wednesday, making him the fifth of six draft picks to sign on the dotted line. The total value of the contract is expected to be four years and $2,402,424.

Murray comes in with many believing he is one of the true steals of the draft . Murray was Kansas City's four selection and the a fifth round pick. During his excellent career at Georgia, Murray set numerous career passing records including most completions and yards in SEC history.

Unfortunately, Murray's senior season was cut short by a torn ACL in his final home game while playing Kentucky. The major knock on Murray is his average arm strength and lack of height at only 6'. His pluses are a high football IQ, the experience in a pro-style offense and having played four years in a top conference.

The signing of Murray means the only rookies left unsigned for the Chiefs are first round pick DE Dee Ford.
