All seems to be well in Arizona and the fan base can take a sigh of relief.
Rumblings of a reported rift surrounding Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals was one of the more unexpected things to happen after the former No. 1 overall pick grabbed the attention of the NFL world after he scrubbed all photos and affiliation of the team on his social media platforms. Then, reports surfaced that there were indeed issues between Murray and the Cardinals where the quarterback’s maturity was questioned.
It appears like things have subsided.
Jane Slater of NFL Media reports that Murray and the Cardinals are now on the same page and are moving forward together.
“I’ve circled back with the Cardinals and this thing has buffed itself out,” Slater said. “In other words, everyone is on the same page and the goal here is to move forward. Now, he’s on the third year of his rookie contract and my understanding is that they’re working towards either exercising that fifth-year option or getting him a long-term deal like we saw with the Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen.”
Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill was on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM to discuss his QB’s future with the team. He made it clear that he has no issue with the former No. 1 overall pick.
“Put me in the corner of ‘I love him’ and I know he’s going to get better,” Bidwill said.
During the 2021 season, Murray had 3,787 passing yards and 24 touchdown passes. He also had 423 yards and five scores on the ground.
