Former UGA QB Aaron Murray cut by Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs and former UGA QB Aaron Murray gave 11Alive Sports his thoughts on a few topics including the next era of the Bulldogs.

Former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, according to USATODAY Sports.

Murray, who was drafted in the fifth-round by the Chiefs in 2014, was dropped by the team after appearing in the team's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Thursday. In that game, Murray completed ten passes for 108 yards, but threw two interceptions.

The former Bulldog struggled in the preseason with ball control. He had one interception and one fumble in the team's third preseason game against Chicago. Prior to that, he had three fumbles, one lost fumble, in the second preseason game against Los Angeles.

Murray will be an unrestricted free agent, assuming he clears waivers. 

Alex Smith will start for the Chiefs at quarterback and will be backed up by Nick Foles.

Murray, a Tampa, Fla. native, played four seasons with the Bulldogs, leading them to the SEC Championship game in 2011 and 2012.
