Financial details aren’t known at this time, but I’m sure he’s been paid a very pretty penny!

I know there was a lot of frustration down the stretch with the Cardinals this season, and it all hit a boiling point when they were blown out in the playoffs against the Rams.
To say things fell apart in the second half of the season would be an understatement.
Congrats to client Kliff Kingsbury on his well-earned contract extension.

However, extending Kingsbury was the right thing to do. The entire team is built around him and his ability to win with Kyler Murray running the offense.
The fact Kingsbury will be around for the next several seasons, you have to imagine this also means the Cardinals have every intention of extending Kyler Murray.

You’re not keeping Kingsbury and his offense if you’re not keeping the team’s star dual-threat quarterback.
