The Arizona Cardinals are fully committed to Kyler Murray as the face of the franchise.
There has been a ton of chatter about whether or not Murray will remain with the Cardinals as the two sides try to decide on a contract extension, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury made it clear the dual-threat star isn’t going anywhere.

At this point, it definitely seems like all signs are pointing towards Murray staying with the team long term. Yes, it’s been a bumpy road, but the Cardinals continue to double down that he’s not going anywhere.
The team picked up his fifth-year option, and that means he’s not going anywhere for at least two seasons.

To be clear, picking up the option was nothing more than an easy decision to buy time for a longer runway for extension talk, but it’s crystal clear the Cardinals want him to stick around.
Now, does Murray want to stick around? For the right price, I’m sure he does. He just wants his money and he’s going to need a lot of it!
