Report: Kyler Murray, Cardinals at odds
February 14, 2022
Explosive Sunday report by old master, BSPN’s Chris Mortensen, on the status of Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.
Murray recently made headlines when he deleted all references to the Cardinals from his social media accounts except for two photos and a story on his Instagram account. The only story was a screenshot of Mike Evans saying he had always wanted to catch a touchdown from “the Texas legend”.
(Evans had Mossed linebacker Denzel Perryman for a touchdown pass from Murray in the Pro Bowl, and Murray also tweeted Evans’ post with the word “Legend!” So he was clearly moved by Evans’ words. )
Mortensen reported that Murray and the Cardinals are actually going against each other. Murray apparently feels he was suspended by the Cardinals during the team’s collapse from a No. 1 seed in December to being kicked out of the playoffs by the Rams in the wildcard round – one game in which Murray looked horrible.
According to Mortensen, someone connected to the Cardinals apparently hit back by saying Murray is immature and selfish. Wow!
The strange atmosphere between the @AZCardinals and Kyler Murray is indeed alarming:
Murray is described as self-absorbed, immature and pointing finger, according to the sources.
Murray is frustrated with the franchise and was embarrassed by the playoff loss to the Rams and believes he was cast as the scapegoat

A team calling their star quarterback through an NFL insider would be really harsh and rare. And who else would call Murray an (allegedly) selfish child other than someone on the team? DeSean Jackson isn’t on the Cardinals, so he’s not the guy who sings fake news to the national media.
Although Mortensen reported that the Cardinals think they can work things out, you don’t start that process by throwing your quarterback under the bus. If Joe didn’t know better, it sure looks like a No. 1 draft pick, a Pro Bowl quarterback, could be had for a reasonable price.
