Ever since Andy Dalton put in a terrible performance in the Cincinnati Bengal's playoff loss to San Diego in January, relations between the QB, team, and fans have been fractious.
The organization have been looking to bring someone in to create competition for Dalton and it seems that the Bengals have picked their man to do it.
Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray set a whole host of SEC passing records in his time as a Bulldog, but the injury he suffered at the end of the 2013 season has left him languishing down in the rankings for quarterbacks in the 2014 draft.
Murray didn't take part in any drills at the recent Combine because he is still recovering from his ACL tear, but he did meet with the Bengals and both sides reportedly left the interview happy.
The Daytona Daily News reported earlier that the two would make a very good fit; "In all likelihood, Cincinnati will draft a quarterback and create competition at the position. The Bengals have shown a fondness for Georgia players and Murray likely would be a contender for the backup position behind Andy Dalton."
Murray is a former teammate of Bengals star and All-Pro wide receiver A.J Green, and says a reunion would greatly excite him:
“I’ll play anywhere, but the chance to get to play with A.J. (Green) again would be incredible,” Murray remarked. “He’s an unbelievable receiver and one of the best in the NFL. We had a good relationship and chemistry in college, so it would be nice to hook up with him again.”
Watch out for the Bengals to have more than one guy present at Murray's pro day on March 16th.
