Perhaps put that move into broadcasting on hold for now — former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray may be getting another shot in the NFL.
On Wednesday, ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported that the Baltimore Ravens are interested in signing Murray to serve as a backup for Joe Flacco. The Ravens have been strongly rumored to be linked to Colin Kaepernick, but have reportedly not received approval from their owner to sign the controversial QB.

Murray was hired to work for CBS Sports Network last week, but plans could change if he signs with Baltimore. Despite playing for four teams — the Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams — from 2014-17, Murray has never thrown a pass in his professional career. He was selected by Kansas City in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Over four seasons with the Bulldogs, Murray threw for 13,166 yards and 121 touchdowns. He passed for more than 3,000 yards in each of those seasons, while never tossing fewer than 24 touchdowns.
Murray hasn’t been on an NFL roster since May, when he was waived by the Rams.
