It was always a matter of time. The Los Angeles Rams needed to trim down the roster and find what works for them under a new coaching regime with head coach Sean McVay. One of the first casualties is former Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray, who has been waived by the team, per a tweet by ESPN’s Field Yates.

This leaves the Rams with just Sean Mannion and Jared Goff, the incumbent. It’s not a huge surprise that Murray is gone, not many expected him to challenge for the starting spot, even likely the back-up spot would have been too big of an ask with Mannion having spent multiple years in the offense.

Time will tell if the Rams opt to bring in another quarterback through free agency or elsewhere, but one thing is set in stone and that is Goff being cemented as the Rams’ starter, at least for another year. Murray barely had time to make an impact, but he’s a human being, dammit.
