Kyler Murray agrees to massive extension with Arizona Cardinals

Just three years ago, Kyler Murray was deciding between football and baseball. Now, he is the second highest paid QB in the NFL.

They have certainly had their ups and downs during recent months but according to reports, the Arizona Cardinals and Kyler Murray have agreed to a long-term extension.

In fact, the two sides have agreed to a MASSIVE contract extension that will keep Murray in the desert for six more years.

According to Adam Schefter, the Cardinals are giving Murray a five-year, $230.5 million deal that includes $160 million guaranteed. As noted by Shefter, Murray is now the second-highest paid QB (AAV) at a whopping $46.1 million per season.

Kyler Murray's agent releases statement outlining desire for contract extension

Back in February, Kyler Murray's agent released a statement outlining Murray's desire for a contract extension.


Three days after Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill made it known Murray was part of the team's “long-term plan,” the quarterback's agent Erik Burkhardt on Monday released a lengthy statement obtained by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport that stated Murray “absolutely wants to be” the Cardinals' long-term quarterback, but “it is now simply up to the Cardinals to decide if they prioritize” signing him to an extension.

Simply put, Monday's statement indicated Murray wants to win a Super Bowl, wants to be a part of the franchise for a long time to come and desires a long-term contract commitment from the club. None of those declarations seem all that novel, so it's at least somewhat puzzling why there was a need for a public statement.

Nation, do you think Kyler Murray is worth $46.1 million per season?
