Kyler Murray hasn’t worked out with the Cardinals yet this offseason

Whether it means something is a different question. For now, it’s just a basic fact.

As reported on Monday by Albert Breer of SI.com, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has not participated in the team’s offseason program this year.

Breer reports that Murray will “be there soon,” and that Murray has worked out with teammates in Dallas.

Murray is a guy who wants to win, badly. He’s a guy who lost three games in his high-school and college careers combined, and who has lost 18 games in his first two NFL seasons.

He believes he should have a say in personnel matters. A top-10 pick of the Oakland A’s, he could walk away at any time and have a successful career in Major League Baseball. As NFL quarterbacks continue to realize their power, Murray seems to be fully aware of it.

The question is when and if he’ll be willing to use it.

He’s two seasons away from completing his rookie contract. Then comes the fifth-year option. In the interim, the Cardinals have a chance after the 2021 season to sign him to a new deal. Murray may want to wait and see what happens. Murray eventually may want to play elsewhere.

As more quarterbacks begin to look for greener pastures, others will be influenced to do the same. Murray could indeed be one of them, eventually.

  1. He will be the next QB unhappy with his team when they finish in last place in the West this year. The shine on that college HC they got is wearing off fast too.

  2. I mean, what has Steve Keim ever done to deserve his job? It’s clear he has little idea of what he’s doing in terms of personnel. To say ‘Leave those decisions to the grown ups’ is idiotic in this case at least (and the Texans case, since they’ve done nothing but mess up every good player they’ve ever lucked into). This isn’t Ozzie Newsome or John Schneider or even John Dorsey. Steve Keim has NEVER been good at his job.

  3. Cardinals gonna be the Cardinals. Before we know it, they’ll be trying to hire Lincoln Riley to keep Murray happy.

  4. have fun being last place this year…oh and he can’t just go to mlb and have a successful career, that’s speculation fact is most draft picks in mlb play in the minors their entire career

  5. Shouldn’t he win a couple of playoff games before skipping out and demanding stuff? This kid hasn’t shown he can put a team on his shoulders and be a franchise QB. If I was the GM I would tell this kid he has to earn his 5th year option.

  6. Brady……..

    Before that ink dried on that 2020 CBA, Brady must have had a union call with all the qbs telling them to turn into divas.

    Unreal. Who would have thunk Brady would do this at the end of his career?

    No one can be BB as a GM, but Keim is absolutely bottom 5.

    And Ozzie, Dorsey? What have these people won? 1 ring as a GM?

    Ozzie didn’t draft RayLewis. Once Reed and Lewis retired, Ozzie got fired, too. He earned one ring as GM as did Schneider.

    BB has 6 as a GM of NE.

  8. He can have a successful career in baseball, says WHO? Mike Florio? Can he hit a major league curve ball or slider? Is he willing to go to the minor leagues and perfect his craft? How many kids are drafted by major league teams that never make it to the majors? How many first round draft picks fail after a few years or never realize the hype they created? To state he will have a successful career is utter nonsense! Particularly, since he has been away from the game for a couple of years. Don’t make him out to be Bo Jackson!

  9. Murray hasn’t reported because NO VETERANS have reported yet. They have practice yet.

    As for Murray leaving Florio seems to be rooting for it at this point. Murray isn’t going anywhere. He is going to forgo becoming the richest contract NFL history at the end of this next season to be franchised tagged into oblivion. No QB has ever done that, especially when you’re talking about $150M+ dollars on the line. Murray could turn down the 150+ and then suffer a career threatening injury the next game, that would be beyond stupid to turn down that kind of money. He is AZ”s franchise player, he isn’t going anywhere.

Murray could turn down the 150+ million and then suffer a career threatening injury the next game, that would be beyond stupid to turn down that kind of money.
