  • Kyler Murray, Marquise Brown Finally Work Together

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (wrist) and wide receiver Marquise Brown (hamstring) finally worked together for the first time this summer at training camp practice on Monday. "They just have a chemistry you can't really coach," wide receiver Greg Dortch said. "This is a grown man's game, but they are like kids out there, having fun with each other. It's fun watching them click like that." Murray and Brown have been eased into camp due to respective injuries, but they are finally working together to build chemistry for the 2022 regular season. With DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games of the year, Brown will be Murray's No. 1 wideout, and he'll have low-end WR2/high-end WR3 value in fantasy drafts in his first year in Arizona.

  • Kyler Murray Returns To Camp On Saturday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (illness) is back with the team on Saturday after recently dealing with COVID-19. While head coach Kliff Kingsbury initially reported that Murray had "mild" symptoms, he will still take things slow with his signal-caller. The 24-year-old also had a minor wrist injury before the diagnosis, so there's a good chance he won't see the field during Friday's preseason opener in Cincinnati. As a result, backup Colt McCoy may get some work, with Trace McSorley and Jarrett Guarantano also expected to line up under center.

  • Kyler Murray Could Return By End Of The Week

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray (illness) is "feeling better" and is hoping to have his quarterback back at practice in training camp by the end of the week. Murray has been Zooming into meetings after testing positive for COVID-19. The 24-year-old also dealt with a minor right wrist injury in practice late last week, but he appears to be fine. In the meantime, veteran Colt McCoy will handle first-team duties in practices. Murray had a disappointing end to last year in a blowout loss to the division-rival Los Angeles Rams, but he finally got a monster contract extension recently and is poised to re-enter the QB1 ranks in fantasy in 2022.

  • Kyler Murray Tests Positive For COVID-19

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and will be out at least five days. The good news is that Murray is experiencing only mild symptoms, so he should be full-go in training camp practices once he returns in five days. The offseason started off on shaky ground between the Cardinals and the 24-year-old, but they recently came together to agree on a five-year contract extension worth around $230.5 million. Murray will be without receiver DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of 2022, but the team added Murray's former college teammate, Marquise Brown, who should be able to pick up the slack in the receiving game early in the year. Murray is a top-five fantasy QB1.

  • Kyler Murray Misses Practice On Saturday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (wrist) didn't practice on Saturday. The Arizona Republic reported the 24-year-old experienced wrist discomfort after Friday's session. However, head coach Kliff Kingsbury attempted to extinguish any speculation by blaming Murray's absence on the amount he's been throwing as of late. Nonetheless, while the ailment may not be anything serious, it's still worth monitoring moving ahead.

    8:15pm: And like that, the clause is no more. Rapoport tweets that the Cardinals have removed the “independent study” clause in Murray’s contract. “After seeing the distraction it created, we removed the addendum from the contract,” the Cardinals said in a statement (via ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Twitter). “It was clearly perceived in ways that […]

  • Kyler Murray No Longer Has "Independent Study" Clause

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray recently agreed to a lucrative extension with the club. Interestingly enough, the contract also contained an "independent study" clause, requiring Murray to devote four hours each week to reviewing materials provided to him by the coaching staff in preparation for an upcoming game. However, on Thursday, the organization released a statement indicating it is eliminating the addendum after "seeing the distraction it created" while also acknowledging its "confidence" in the young signal-caller. With both sides seemingly now on good terms, Murray can turn his attention toward claiming an MVP and winning a championship. He has top-five potential in all fantasy formats, assuming he remains healthy and away from off-the-field distractions.

  • Kyler Murray Deal Shouldn't Impact Lamar Jackson

    CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones gets the sense that the deal that quarterback Kyler Murray signed with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday for five years and $230.5 million doesn't necessarily impact Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson's contract-extension talks. Jackson is a former unanimous NFL MVP with two playoff appearances and one playoff win, so he should be aiming to match and top Deshaun Watson's $230 million fully guaranteed deal with the Cleveland Browns. Despite a down year in 2021 by his standards due to an injury late last season, Jackson should still be considered a top-five fantasy QB now that he's fully healthy entering the 2022 campaign.

  • Kyler Murray Receives Five-Year Extension

    Updating a previous report, the Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Kyler Murray agreed to a five-year, $230.5 million contract extension that includes $160 million guaranteed on Thursday. Murray will make $46.1 million per year and is now one of the highest-paid players in the league after the Cleveland Browns recently signed quarterback Deshaun Watson for five years and $230 million fully guaranteed. Murray began the offseason at odds with the organization, but the Cardinals put their money where their mouth was and gave Murray what he wanted. The 24-year-old former first overall pick won't have his top receiver DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of the season, but he could bounce back as a fine high-end QB1 after missing three games with an ankle injury in 2021 to finish as the QB11 in fantasy.

  • Cardinals, Kyler Murray Working On Monster Extension

    The Arizona Cardinals and two-time Pro Bowl quarterback Kyler Murray are working to close a monster contract extension that will make Murray one of the league's highest-paid players, according to sources. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is also reporting that the deal is slated to lock Murray up through the 2028 season. The 24-year-old and the Cardinals were at odds when the offseason started after a tough exit in the postseason, but things have been going smoothly lately, and it looks like everything could be patched up before Murray even reports to training camp. Murray missed three games due to an ankle injury in 2021 and finished as the QB11 in fantasy. Fantasy managers might be down on him as a QB1 this year, especially with top receiver DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games.

  • Rodney Hudson Will Play In 2022

    Arizona Cardinals veteran center Rodney Hudson, who was absent from mandatory minicamp last month with his status for 2022 uncertain, has informed the team that he is returning and will play this year, according to sources. Hudson will report to training camp with the rest of the veteran players next Tuesday. The 33-year-old wasn't all that effective last season, but his return has to be considered positive news for quarterback Kyler Murray and the rest of Arizona's offense as they look to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to the division-rival Los Angeles Rams early in the playoffs. Hudson also missed five games last year due to injury, so the Cardinals will be hoping he can stay healthy for what could be his last NFL season.

  • Kyler Murray Talks "Going Smooth"

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is still without a new contract as training camp approaches. However, ESPN NFL reporter Jeff Darlington shed some light on the situation, indicating that current talks are "going smooth" while adding that a deal before camp "remains a very reasonable likelihood." The signal-caller is unquestionably one of the most talented at the position. He had issues staying healthy last season, and his quest for a long-term agreement became somewhat of a distraction. Yet, if Murray finally gets paid and can remain on the field in 2022-23, he has top-five potential in all fantasy formats.

  • Kyler Murray Receives Endorsement From Legend

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has received plenty of press this offseason. Although the signal-caller is widely considered one of the best at the position, there have been concerns regarding his commitment to the franchise as well as his conduct surrounding his search for more cash. However, while speaking at a celebrity golf tournament, legendary Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald voiced his support for Murray, claiming "there's nobody in the game as talented." Nevertheless, regardless of the endorsement from Fitzgerald, it won't matter if Murray isn't on the field, which may not happen in any capacity until he receives a new contract. As a result, fantasy managers may want to look in another direction for a starter, at least until things are sorted out between both sides.

  • Kyler Murray To Be At Mandatory Minicamp Tuesday

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is present for physicals on Monday and is scheduled to be at mandatory minicamp with his teammates on Tuesday, according to a source. Murray wants a new contract, but he had recently returned to organized team activities, so his arrival for minicamp this week was expected. The 24-year-old and the Cardinals haven't been on the greatest of terms this offseason after a rough end to their season in the postseason in 2021, but the team continues to be optimistic that Murray will remain in their long-term plans. Murray missed several games with an ankle injury last year and won't have No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of the 2022 campaign, so his fantasy stock as a high-end QB1 has taken a bit of a hit.

  • Kyler Murray Back At Team's Facility

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is back at the team's training facility and is expected to be on the practice field for the first time during their offseason program when organized team activities resume on Wednesday, according to a league source. Murray has stayed away from the team during the offseason as he seeks a new long-term contract extension, but it's a good sign that he's joining the Cardinals before mandatory minicamp this month. Arizona remains adamant that the 24-year-old will be around long term, but it remains to be seen if the two sides will be able to work something out. As long as Murray remains under center in Arizona, he'll be a high-end QB1, although No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins' suspension for a third of the 2022 season could make things more difficult for him.

  • Kyler Murray Contract May Get Done This Summer

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is still in search of a new contract. There has been tension between the signal-caller and the front office going back a while now, so things were expected to get rocky, including unfounded rumblings of a possible trade request. However, when speaking with Pat McAfee on his show, general manager Steve Keim believes a deal could get done this summer. While nothing is guaranteed at this point, it's at least a possible step in the right direction regarding a resolution to this matter. Still, until Murray signs on the dotted line, fantasy managers should tread carefully before committing to him.

  • Kyler Murray Expected To Be At Mandatory Minicamp

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he expects quarterback Kyler Murray to be at mandatory minicamp in mid-June. Murray is not attending voluntary organized team activities this week while still seeking a long-term contract extension from Arizona. The 24-year-old isn't happy with his situation in the desert, but the Cardinals continue to say that they expect something to get done. If no extension has been reached by the time mandatory minicamp begins, all bets are off that Murray will be present. Murray missed three games last year due to an ankle injury and finished as the QB11 in fantasy. He still has high-end QB1 upside heading into 2022, but the fact that No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins is suspended for the first six games will likely cause his stock to drop in fantasy circles.

  • Kyler Murray Won't Be At OTAs This Week

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will not attend the team's organized team activities this week, as expected. For now, Murray's contract situation remains quiet. The 24-year-old and the Cardinals still have a lot to work out before a long-term contract extension is agreed upon, but the Cardinals remain adamant that Murray is their QB of the future despite a bumpy offseason. Murray looked bad in his first playoff game last year and missed a few games due to injury in 2021, but he should once again have high-end QB1 appeal for fantasy managers, even with top wideout DeAndre Hopkins suspended for the first six games of the season. Murray could come at a slight discount once the bigger QB names come off the board in fantasy drafts.
