Pat Murray lands in Cleveland

Earlier this week, the Denver Broncos waived guard Pat Murray, who finished the 2008 season as a member of the team’s roster.  He was signed from the Seahawks’ practice squad.

A league source tells us that, after passing through waivers, Murray has signed a contract with the Browns.

The release from the Broncos, we’re told, came at the request of the player.  He first asked to be cut last week, since he was getting limited practice reps.  The team decided to make a decision after assessing his performance in the preseason opener — in which he got zero reps.

Several teams were interested in signing Murray, who picked Cleveland as his next destination.

Though there’s a good chance that Murray will end up among the 27 players cut by the Browns between now and Labor Day, he’s one of those under-the-radar guys who might eventually stick — even if it’s in the UFL.
