University of Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has interviewed with several NFL teams, including the Cincinnati Bengals, despite not being able to participate in the recent scouting combine because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Murray told Carlos Holmes of the Dayton Daily News that it'd be an "incredible" opportunity to play again with Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, who Cincinnati selected out of Georgia with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. The pair connected on nine touchdowns during the 2010 season at Georgia, something Murray would love to repeat in the NFL.
"I’ll play anywhere, but the chance to get to play with A.J. [Green] again would be incredible. 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.”
According to Holmes, the Bengals have "legitimate interest" in selecting Murray as a backup to 2011 Pro Bowler Andy Dalton.
