After deleting all team-related matters on social media, quarterback Kyler Murray has urged the Arizona Cardinals through his lawyer for a long-term extension contract, further adding more friction for both parties.

The 24-year-old released a statement on Monday via agent Erik Burkhardt proposing a contract extension and adding the player is committed to the Cardinals as long as he is provided with a lucrative deal.

“Looking ahead, Kyler believes that in order to consistently compete for championships, and ultimately deliver the valley their first Super Bowl in 33-plus years, there needs to be long-term stability for both the organization and himself. To overtly communicate Kyler’s desire to be the Cardinals’ long-term QB, we sent a detailed contract proposal to the organization,” the statement reads.

There are previous cases of QBs signing massive contract extensions prior to their entering the fourth season in the NFL. Although Murray’s proposal is less likely to land him a deal as many sees his stance as perplexing.

The reason is not far from Murray’s lack of progression in the previous season. In 2021, Murray had a 69 percent completion, 3,787 passing yards, 423 rushing yards, 29 total TD, and 10 INT. While looking back in comparison to 2020, Murray did not make as much progression with a lower completion percentage and less total TDs and INT.

Adding to the intrique is the Cardinals boss Michael Bidwill calling the QB’s proposal as “very complicated.”

“These contracts, especially the quarterback contracts, are very complicated. Most of the big ones are done further down the road (of the offseason). I think Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen were done in the summertime, others were done in the summertime. So we’ve got time,” Bidwill said.

While there is not much known behind the scenes or how much Murray has demanded for his contract, fans of the franchise can only wait to see how things will play out.
