It seems the people involved want the public to understand that all is good regarding the relationship between quarterback Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals in the early spring days.
Murray, the first overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, made headlines last month when he wash his social media accounts for any mention of his current employer and also unfollowing Cardinal. Fuel was figuratively poured into the fire when Erik Burkhardt, Murray’s agent, released a verbose statement on 28 February it became clear that his client wanted a new deal and the club had to fulfill that request.
On March 8, Murray return pictures of the Cardinals on social media. Each Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk, the 24-year-old claimed at a charity event on Thursday his actions were not linked to any friction caused by his desire to be paid big this season.
“It’s not – like I said, if you’re a kid my age, you’re used to… people take their clothes off – it’s just one thing,” Murray said. “Honestly, like I said, I removed everything of it, besides a photo. So it has nothing to do with the Cardinals or anything like that.”
Two-time Pro Bowl selection added:
“I’m an Arizona Cardinal. I do nothing but dedicate myself to the Cardinals and will continue to do that. So I’m really not too worried about that.”
If there’s anything the 2022 midfield carousel has taught, it’s that such public commitments from players or teams are often short-lived.
