Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (illness) is back with the team on Saturday after recently dealing with COVID-19. While head coach Kliff Kingsbury initially reported that Murray had "mild" symptoms, he will still take things slow with his signal-caller. The 24-year-old also had a minor wrist injury before the diagnosis, so there's a good chance he won't see the field during Friday's preseason opener in Cincinnati. As a result, backup Colt McCoy may get some work, with Trace McSorley and Jarrett Guarantano also expected to line up under center.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray (illness) is "feeling better" and is hoping to have his quarterback back at practice in training camp by the end of the week. Murray has been Zooming into meetings after testing positive for COVID-19. The 24-year-old also dealt with a minor right wrist injury in practice late last week, but he appears to be fine. In the meantime, veteran Colt McCoy will handle first-team duties in practices. Murray had a disappointing end to last year in a blowout loss to the division-rival Los Angeles Rams, but he finally got a monster contract extension recently and is poised to re-enter the QB1 ranks in fantasy in 2022.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and will be out at least five days. The good news is that Murray is experiencing only mild symptoms, so he should be full-go in training camp practices once he returns in five days. The offseason started off on shaky ground between the Cardinals and the 24-year-old, but they recently came together to agree on a five-year contract extension worth around $230.5 million. Murray will be without receiver DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of 2022, but the team added Murray's former college teammate, Marquise Brown, who should be able to pick up the slack in the receiving game early in the year. Murray is a top-five fantasy QB1.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (wrist) didn't practice on Saturday. The Arizona Republic reported the 24-year-old experienced wrist discomfort after Friday's session. However, head coach Kliff Kingsbury attempted to extinguish any speculation by blaming Murray's absence on the amount he's been throwing as of late. Nonetheless, while the ailment may not be anything serious, it's still worth monitoring moving ahead.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray recently agreed to a lucrative extension with the club. Interestingly enough, the contract also contained an "independent study" clause, requiring Murray to devote four hours each week to reviewing materials provided to him by the coaching staff in preparation for an upcoming game. However, on Thursday, the organization released a statement indicating it is eliminating the addendum after "seeing the distraction it created" while also acknowledging its "confidence" in the young signal-caller. With both sides seemingly now on good terms, Murray can turn his attention toward claiming an MVP and winning a championship. He has top-five potential in all fantasy formats, assuming he remains healthy and away from off-the-field distractions.
The Arizona Cardinals and two-time Pro Bowl quarterback Kyler Murray are working to close a monster contract extension that will make Murray one of the league's highest-paid players, according to sources. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is also reporting that the deal is slated to lock Murray up through the 2028 season. The 24-year-old and the Cardinals were at odds when the offseason started after a tough exit in the postseason, but things have been going smoothly lately, and it looks like everything could be patched up before Murray even reports to training camp. Murray missed three games due to an ankle injury in 2021 and finished as the QB11 in fantasy. Fantasy managers might be down on him as a QB1 this year, especially with top receiver DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games.
Updating a previous report, the Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Kyler Murray agreed to a five-year, $230.5 million contract extension that includes $160 million guaranteed on Thursday. Murray will make $46.1 million per year and is now one of the highest-paid players in the league after the Cleveland Browns recently signed quarterback Deshaun Watson for five years and $230 million fully guaranteed. Murray began the offseason at odds with the organization, but the Cardinals put their money where their mouth was and gave Murray what he wanted. The 24-year-old former first overall pick won't have his top receiver DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of the season, but he could bounce back as a fine high-end QB1 after missing three games with an ankle injury in 2021 to finish as the QB11 in fantasy.
Dynasty | The Cardinals signed quarterback Kyler Murray to a five-year, $230.5 million contract extension. Dynasty Analysis: The deal includes $160 million guaranteed and makes Murray one of the highest paid players in the game. This ends a long-running discussion between the two sides and locks up Arizona's quarterback of the present and future through 2028. Murray has been a franchise savior as he's posted 11,480 passing yards, 1,786 rushing yards, and accounted for a total of 90 touchdowns in his first three seasons. It would be nice to see him take one more step forward into the realm of 30+ passing touchdowns each year, but beggars can't be choosers here. Murray is now entrenched as our QB6 and could have room to move up if he can improve even a little more.
Arizona Cardinals veteran center Rodney Hudson, who was absent from mandatory minicamp last month with his status for 2022 uncertain, has informed the team that he is returning and will play this year, according to sources. Hudson will report to training camp with the rest of the veteran players next Tuesday. The 33-year-old wasn't all that effective last season, but his return has to be considered positive news for quarterback Kyler Murray and the rest of Arizona's offense as they look to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to the division-rival Los Angeles Rams early in the playoffs. Hudson also missed five games last year due to injury, so the Cardinals will be hoping he can stay healthy for what could be his last NFL season.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is still without a new contract as training camp approaches. However, ESPN NFL reporter Jeff Darlington shed some light on the situation, indicating that current talks are "going smooth" while adding that a deal before camp "remains a very reasonable likelihood." The signal-caller is unquestionably one of the most talented at the position. He had issues staying healthy last season, and his quest for a long-term agreement became somewhat of a distraction. Yet, if Murray finally gets paid and can remain on the field in 2022-23, he has top-five potential in all fantasy formats.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has received plenty of press this offseason. Although the signal-caller is widely considered one of the best at the position, there have been concerns regarding his commitment to the franchise as well as his conduct surrounding his search for more cash. However, while speaking at a celebrity golf tournament, legendary Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald voiced his support for Murray, claiming "there's nobody in the game as talented." Nevertheless, regardless of the endorsement from Fitzgerald, it won't matter if Murray isn't on the field, which may not happen in any capacity until he receives a new contract. As a result, fantasy managers may want to look in another direction for a starter, at least until things are sorted out between both sides.
Dynasty | In a recent roster ranking article, the Texans were ranked last. Dynasty Analysis: It's no surprise though there are multiple teams vying for the less-than-ideal 'honor.' Sophomore quarterback Davis Mills showed that he may have NFL upside after looking like a starter late in 2021. That said, with a strong 2023 draft class, most notably at quarterback, the team will be hard pressed to keep Mills under-center unless he has a standout 2022 campaign. Similar to 10th-overall selection Josh Rosen in 2018 by the Cardinals before their selection of Kyler Murray, another coaching change or a high draft selection would likely end Mills' time as a starter as the team looks for a marquee name as its new face of the franchise. Mills controls his own destiny and should consider 2022 a resume-building season. He's found as DLF's QB30 showing that he's acknowledged as a very tenuous starter.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is present for physicals on Monday and is scheduled to be at mandatory minicamp with his teammates on Tuesday, according to a source. Murray wants a new contract, but he had recently returned to organized team activities, so his arrival for minicamp this week was expected. The 24-year-old and the Cardinals haven't been on the greatest of terms this offseason after a rough end to their season in the postseason in 2021, but the team continues to be optimistic that Murray will remain in their long-term plans. Murray missed several games with an ankle injury last year and won't have No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of the 2022 campaign, so his fantasy stock as a high-end QB1 has taken a bit of a hit.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is back at the team's training facility and is expected to be on the practice field for the first time during their offseason program when organized team activities resume on Wednesday, according to a league source. Murray has stayed away from the team during the offseason as he seeks a new long-term contract extension, but it's a good sign that he's joining the Cardinals before mandatory minicamp this month. Arizona remains adamant that the 24-year-old will be around long term, but it remains to be seen if the two sides will be able to work something out. As long as Murray remains under center in Arizona, he'll be a high-end QB1, although No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins' suspension for a third of the 2022 season could make things more difficult for him.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is still in search of a new contract. There has been tension between the signal-caller and the front office going back a while now, so things were expected to get rocky, including unfounded rumblings of a possible trade request. However, when speaking with Pat McAfee on his show, general manager Steve Keim believes a deal could get done this summer. While nothing is guaranteed at this point, it's at least a possible step in the right direction regarding a resolution to this matter. Still, until Murray signs on the dotted line, fantasy managers should tread carefully before committing to him.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he expects quarterback Kyler Murray to be at mandatory minicamp in mid-June. Murray is not attending voluntary organized team activities this week while still seeking a long-term contract extension from Arizona. The 24-year-old isn't happy with his situation in the desert, but the Cardinals continue to say that they expect something to get done. If no extension has been reached by the time mandatory minicamp begins, all bets are off that Murray will be present. Murray missed three games last year due to an ankle injury and finished as the QB11 in fantasy. He still has high-end QB1 upside heading into 2022, but the fact that No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins is suspended for the first six games will likely cause his stock to drop in fantasy circles.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will not attend the team's organized team activities this week, as expected. For now, Murray's contract situation remains quiet. The 24-year-old and the Cardinals still have a lot to work out before a long-term contract extension is agreed upon, but the Cardinals remain adamant that Murray is their QB of the future despite a bumpy offseason. Murray looked bad in his first playoff game last year and missed a few games due to injury in 2021, but he should once again have high-end QB1 appeal for fantasy managers, even with top wideout DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games of the season. Murray could come at a slight discount once the bigger QB names come off the board in fantasy drafts.
The Arizona Cardinals selected Colorado tight end Trey McBride, with the No.55 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He was the first tight end selected in the 2022 NFL Draft after hauling in 90 receptions for 1,121 yards and one touchdown over 12 games in 2021. The 22-year-old won the 2021 John Mackey Award and was the highest-ranked tight end in the NFL Draft. McBride will give quarterback Kyler Murray another offensive weapon but might not make a fantasy impact right away with Zach Ertz signed to a new deal.
The Arizona Cardinals picked up the fifth-year option on quarterback Kyler Murray on Wednesday, according to a source. General manager Steve Keim said in early March that this would happen, and it's now official. Murray is locked in for nearly $30 million for the 2023 season after making two Pro Bowls. The 24-year-old was the first overall pick in 2019 and although the Cardinals season ended in playoff humiliation in the first round last year, Murray has improved in each of his three NFL seasons, topping out at a 69% completion rate and 7.9 yards per attempt in 2021. Murray and the Cardinals haven't seen eye to eye yet in terms of a long-term contract extension, but it doesn't sound like he's going anywhere. With 70 passing touchdowns, 1,786 rushing yards and 20 rushing TDs so far in his career, Murray will remain a high-end QB1 target in fantasy drafts.
The Arizona Cardinals must make a decision on exercising quarterback Kyler Murray's fifth-year option by next Tuesday. The option would cost the team $29.7 million. This would normally seem like a no-brainer for the team to exercise. However, with an apparently strained relationship surrounding a contract extension, this could light the fire to either get a long-term deal done or to explore a trade in order to avoid a holdout. It seems highly unlikely that Murray would be traded, considering the team extended head coach Kliff Kingsbury through 2027, but this offseason we can't rule out anything. The 24-year-old Murray finished 2021 with 3,787 yards passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 423 yards and another five scores on the ground. With the emergence of top-tier fantasy quarterbacks like Josh Allen and Justin Herbert, Murray is quietly becoming an excellent value in all formats with the upside and skill set to finish as the overall QB1.
