At least one professional sports team approved when Andi Dorfman chose Josh Murray over Nick Viall on “The Bachelorette” 2014 season finale on Monday.
The Kansas City Chiefs took to Twitter to congratulate Murray on his engagement. The final rose recipient happens to be the older brother of Aaron Murray, the team’s rookie quarterback.
“Winner! Congrats to [Aaron Murray’s brother] Josh on winning [The Bachelorette],” the Chiefs wrote on Twitter. The team’s post also featured a photo of the brothers, with Aaron Murray clad in a University of Georgia sweater.

The University of Georgia athletics department also expressed its support for Josh Murray. The Bulldogs wished him luck before the final ceremony and tweeted its congratulations after he won. More importantly, the school's football team officially welcomed Dorfman to the Bulldogs family.

Both Murrays are UGA graduates. Aaron Murray finished his career as quarterback of the school’s football team with SEC records for completions, passing yards and touchdown passes. Meanwhile, Josh Murray is a former professional baseball player who spent several years as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers organization.
When his baseball career was over, Josh Murray walked onto the Bulldogs football team as a safety. He earned a degree in business administration from the school in 2010.
For her part, Dorfman seemed absolutely convinced that she made the right decision. “Josh, I’ve loved you from the moment I laid eyes on you … Out of everything I’ve been through, I know I love you. I’m madly in love with you. You’re it! You’re the one I want to spend the rest of my life with, I want to have babies with,” she said during the show.
The newly engaged couple will get their first chance to watch Aaron Murray on the Chiefs sideline Sept. 7, when Kansas City opens the 2014 NFL season at home against the Tennesee Titans.
