Speculation began to brew over the weekend after fans noticed that Kyler Murray had suddenly began to scrub his accounts of anything related to the Arizona Cardinals. He unfollowed the team’s Twitter and Instagram accounts. He also scrubbed Cardinals-related photos from his personal Instagram account.
That happened within hours after Murray played in the Pro Bowl at Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium. During the game, recorded three touchdowns, 160 yards on 18-of-27 completions, 104.0 passer rating with one interception.
Murray still has Cardinals-related photos on his Twitter timeline. However, his avatar is an image of him in his Oklahoma and Oakland A’s uniforms before became a member of the Cards.
Murray has stated nothing to the media about any potential unhappiness, but he did take major heat for his playoff performance after Arizona was handed an embarrassing 34-11 loss at eventual NFC champion Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round.
The Cardinals went from a league-best 7-0 start before its mediocre season second-half finish at 11-7.
After completing his third year, the former No. 1 overall pick Murray is eligible for a contract extension this off-season from his four-year rookie deal. This may be his way of putting the pressure on the front office to sign him to a huge deal as they think he may walk when he becomes a free agent.
