Carolina Panthers could trade for Kyler Murray
There has been some growing discontent between the Arizona Cardinals and Kyler Murray this offseason. The quarterback is looking for a new contract way ahead of time, which hasn’t arrived as yet with the organization holding all the cards right now.
Murray is an electrifying signal-caller that has a rare gift to conjure up plays out of nothing. There are some long-term durability concerns with how much punishment the undersized player takes on a regular basis, but whether this is something keeping Arizona from taking the plunge is debatable.
The former No. 1 overall selection had his fifth-year option picked up, so Murray is due to make around $41 million over the next two seasons. Money that he clearly feels should be increased given how well the Oklahoma product has performed since entering the league.
This is yet another saga to monitor.
And if this offseason has taught us anything, it’s that nothing is impossible regarding established stars being traded.
The Carolina Panthers will watch closely. But there are obviously many moving parts to this equation and the compensation Arizona would want if they started taking calls is likely to be nothing short of astronomical.
