Chiefs' Aaron Murray downplays No. 2 snaps: "We have a long way to go"

Aaron Murray says he was told on Tuesday morning that it would be him and not Tyler Bray taking the No. 2 quarterback snaps this week. The No. 2 quarterback competition is one of the big position battles this offseason but Murray downplayed it this early on.

"We have a long way to go," Murray said via quotes from the Chiefs. "We have another six practices now, a bunch of preseason stuff, so it’s going to be a long road and it’s going to be fun. This is what football is about. It’s about competition against other teams and your team and that’s what makes everyone better – competition and going out there and having fun. I am looking forward to it and I know Tyler (Bray) is looking forward to it.”

A few things about the back up quarterback competition I want to know:

Is Kevin Hogan a practice squad candidate?

Would the Chiefs keep four quarterbacks?

Can the Chiefs keep Murray and Bray?

I'm not sure anyone can answer that question right now. I would say it's unlikely the Chiefs keep four quarterbacks based on how Andy Reid has operated in the past. I have no idea if Kevin Hogan would be safe on the practice squad but I kinda doubt that's an option. If the Chiefs can find another mystery IR candidate, they could keep all of these quarterbacks.
