Cardinals GM Steve Keim said there was “zero chance” Kyler Murray would be dealt this offseason.
Putting on a brave face, Keim also “noted” that quarterback extensions usually happen after free agency and the draft.
Although that is true, Murray has been offended at the Cards’ lack of action.
Keim has nevertheless insisted Murray remains the franchise’s long-term quarterback, and that having Murray around “makes me a smarter GM.”
No debate there. Unusually intense, even for a professional athlete, Murray will likely get over his hurt feelings soon and the sides will get down to business. Absent an extension, Murray is under team control for a minimum of two more seasons, and more via the franchise tag. The Cards hold all the cards.
