Teams have to take their rosters from 90 to 75 by this afternoon, and then to 53 this weekend.

So if you’ve got extra stuff you don’t want sitting around the garage, you might as well put it on Craigslist and see if anybody else wants it.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Chiefs are putting out word that quarterback Aaron Murray is available if anyone wants to trade for him. Consider yourself alerted.

The former fifth-round pick from Georgia might have once been a possibility as the in-house replacement for former backup Chase Daniel, but that was before the Chiefs extended Tyler Bray last year and then went out and found Nick Foles to back up Alex Smith.

Of course, it’s unlikely anyone would give anything of value for Murray, but then again, it wasn’t that long ago that some team gave up things of value for Foles. So it can’t hurt asking.
