Kyler Murray: Terrell Suggs is “old enough to be my dad”

Kyler Murray was 5 years old, going on 6, when the Ravens made Terrell Suggs the 10th overall choice in 2003.

So the Cardinals rookie quarterback had a predictable answer when asked what it was like to be around the first-year Cardinals linebacker, who is entering his 17th NFL season.

“He’s old enough to be my dad,” Murray said, chucking, via Darren Urban of the team website. “It’s not like we’re hanging out.”

Suggs turns 37 in October. Murray turned 22 last week.

Kevin Murray, Kyler’s father, is 55.

Thus, told of Suggs’ age, Murray allowed that maybe Suggs wasn’t quite that old.

“You need those type of guys,” Murray said of veteran players. “He prides himself on winning. He’s won a lot. I know culture is a big part of any organization or team.”

  1. Kind of disrespectful to be honest. I don’t think Russell Wilson would have said that.

    I know he’s the new kid on the block and all but having a little humility helps with your image. The correct answer is suggs is a consummate professional and consistent warrior etc etc… Someone to help learn the game from blah blah blah. The Russell Wilson answer.

    Suggs will play that off but I bet he didn’t like it.

  2. What a clueless, classless comment. To be fair, I would’ve said the same thing at his age. Cardinals just better hope he matures faster than I did

  3. Kyler Murray better hope he can outrun, outsmart, and outperform men as old as Suggs. There are still a few left in the league and they are well-seasoned.

  4. “It’s not like we’re hanging out.”

    Nothing screams team chemistry like players making point blank quotes like that to the media.

  5. To be fair, if you watch the entire press conference, the media was asking really silly questions. The question that was asked about Suggs was, “What’s is like hanging out with Suggs”. Pretty weird question. If Suggs was asked, “What’s it like hanging out with Kyler?”, it would have been an equally odd question. When you see and hear the response Kyler gave, it really wasn’t as rude as this article makes it out to be. I see no potential chemistry problems whatsoever.
