Kyler Murray wants to stay in Arizona and play professional football, but he wants to do so on a new deal. The Arizona Cardinals have promised to get a deal done, but so far nothing has been signed.
If Murray were to start exploring his options and actually request a trade, there are many teams out there that would love to have him.
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio mentioned Philly might have interest in Murray, then debated the topic with veteran reporter Peter King.
“And I think that is exactly where the Philadelphia Eagles would land,” King said. “You know, we could argue right now that, look if we were doing this last October 20th you’d laugh if I said that, well, the Eagles don’t think that Kyler Murray’s a big upgrade over Jalen Hurts. But we’ve got more evidence than just seven or eight weeks at the start of last year when Kyler Murray arguably was the NFL MVP.
“And so I think you have to look at where the Eagles are, where Nick Sirianni would be, and you just have to ask them, do you want a guy who’s been hurt some, who’s small, who, you know, you don’t know how durable he’s going to be long-term.”
The Cardinals have yet to make a contract offer to Murray, whose agent, Erik Burkhardt, informed the team weeks ago he was pulling his opening proposal off the table.
King concluded that he “doubts seriously” that the Eagles would swap Jalen Hurts for Murray.
“I doubt sincerely that the Philadelphia Eagles would really mortgage all of the gains that they’ve made in draft choices,” King said, “you know, and get rid of Jalen Hurts and add Kyler Murray. It’s just, that’s my gut feeling.”
The 24-year-old threw 24 touchdowns and ten interceptions this past season before being blown out by the Los Angeles Rams in their Wild Card matchup.
Alongside the Eagles, other interested teams could include the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and the Atlanta Falcons.
