Kyler Murray has sought to quell growing speculation over his Arizona Cardinals future as the trade rumors continue to gather steam.
There had been suggestions that the quarterback was unhappy at the Cardinals over a potential bust-up during a postseason event with his colleagues, and Murray seems to be at a bit of a crossroads in his career.
The quarterback role is arguably the most prized position in NFL, and there are plenty of top quarterbacks who have managed to secure big contracts, including Dallas Cowboys star Dak Prescott who rakes in about $40 million a year, while Kansas City Chiefs linchpin Patrick Mahomes is believed to do very well for himself.
Social media has done little to help Murray’s cause as he had been trending on Twitter, and this has only added further fuel to the constant rumor mill about where his future lies.
But when asked about his Cardinals future, Murray gave an unequivocal answer.
He said: “I’m an Arizona Cardinal. I’ve done nothing but give my all to the Cardinals and will continue to do that.
“I’m not too worried about my future as a Cardinal.”
However, Murray can’t afford to hold the Cardinals to ransom. The Cardinals reached the Wild Card stage of the playoffs last term, and they will be hoping to go further next season after defeat to the Los Angeles Rams.
Although the Rams will still be basking in their Super Bowl glory, which was one of the most dramatic Super Bowl matches in recent memory, the fans will be quickly turning their attention to the new NFL season. Rams supporters will be desperate to defend their Super Bowl title, but the new campaign won’t get underway until September.
Nevertheless, the NFL is a huge business, and from a betting perspective, it continues to garner interest from all over the world. The leading bookmakers will be on top of all the big games during the regular season, including bet365 in Australia, which will stock a variety of props and parlays, and all roads lead to the Super Bowl. By the time the Super Bowl rolls around, there will be even more outright and match betting markets, and players can keep track of their bets during in-play, and cash out if necessary.
As far as the Murray situation is concerned, this story still has a few chapters left to run, and it will be fascinating to see if Murray is still with the Cardinals come September.Back to the Arizona Cardinals Newsfeed
