Kyler Murray, Cardinals, nowhere on new contract, reigniting trade rumors

The Arizona Cardinals have made yet another contract extension offer to quarterback Kyler Murray, who is reportedly not going to play without a new contract.

There’s been a lot of talk about the Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Kyler Murray this offseason. There was the social media scrubbing, but most important was Murray’s agent Erik Burkhardt, who released a lengthy statement expressing the quarterback’s desire to remain with the team long-term and the contract proposal they sent the team , described in detail.

The Cardinals have yet to send a contract offer to Murray, who is not expected to play under his current contract, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero Thursday. Pelissero goes on to say Burkhardt took her proposal off the table “weeks ago.”

Per Pelissero there are teams monitoring the situation, but the team insists he will not be made available for trading.

As for a re-contract deadline, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer tweeted that the quarterback was eyeing the 2022 NFL draft as the Cardinals’ re-contract deadline.

Murray, who was selected with the first overall pick in 2019 after winning the Heisman Trophy as Oklahoma’s starting quarterback, is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract. Murray is expected to earn about $5.5 million for the season. As Pelissero points out in the tweet above, Aaron Rodgers, Derek Carr, Matthew Stafford, and Deshaun Watson have all received contract extensions this offseason, earning them $40 million a year.

It’ll be a situation worth watching leading up to the NFL Draft on April 28, especially when seeing whether or not the Cardinals offer Murray a contract. Kyler Murray, Cardinals, nowhere on new contract, reigniting trade rumors
