Kyler Murray’s ongoing contract negotiations have been a huge question mark for the Arizona Cardinals this offseason.
Despite the Pro-Bowl quarterback indicating that he wants a longterm deal to become the franchise’s QB of the future, Murray has yet to sign a new contract as he heads into his fourth NFL season with the Cardinals.
Both Murray and the Cardinals organization have indicated that they have no intention of parting ways, but the lack of a longterm deal still remains.
“The #Cardinals have yet to make a contract offer to Pro Bowl QB Kyler Murray, whose agent, Erik Burkhardt, informed the team weeks ago he was pulling his opening proposal off the table, per sources. Other teams are monitoring closely; Arizona insists Murray won’t be traded,” NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero wrote on Twitter Thursday.
Four QBs – Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Matthew Stafford and Derek Carr – have signed contract extensions worth $40 million or more in the past month as the market continues to go up.
Murray is due about $5.5 million in 2022, and it’d be a surprise if he plays on that deal.

Murray is set to make $5.5 million during the final year of his rookie contract in 2022 — pennies compared to some of the league’s other star quarterback options.
Pelissero said it would be a “surprise” if Murray plays this coming season under his current deal.
Whether it’s on a new deal or not, Murray will look to bounce back after a disappointing early exit in the 2021 postseason.
