Aaron Murray among locals cut by NFL teams

Aaron Murray is one of the most decorated quarterbacks in SEC history. His NFL career hasn't followed suit.

Murray, the former Plant High and Georgia star, was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, one of a few notables now looking for a job as pro clubs trim down to the mandated 53-man roster.

Murray entered training camp in a battle for the Chiefs' backup quarterback job, but struggled in the preseason, falling behind Nick Foles and Tyler Bray on the depth chart.

A fifth-round pick in 2014, Murray has never logged a regular-season stat in the NFL. He passed for an SEC-record 13,166 yards at Georgia.

Fellow Plant alum James Wilder Jr. was waived by the Buffalo Bills, while the Titans released former Largo product Dexter McCluster.
