Kyler Murray officially signs new contract

Chris Simms explains why it just made sense for the Cardinals to work with Kyler Murray to keep the QB in Arizona even though there are still big questions that need to be answered.

It’s officially official as Kyler Murray put pen to paper on Monday.

The Cardinals quarterback agreed to a five-year, $230 million extension last week. The team announced the deal, which will keep him under contract through 2028, on Thursday, and Murray held a news conference Friday.

But owner Michael Bidwill was out of town last week.

On Monday, the team posted photos of Murray signing his deal and posing with Bidwill.

Murray was all smiles at his news conference Friday and all smiles in the photos Monday.

“For me, it’s a blessing,” Murray said Friday. “I’m so grateful and honored for the confidence that they’ve shown in me, the faith that they’ve shown in me to take a 5-foot-10 quarterback. That’s never been done before. I understood the heat that they would take for doing that, but for me, I’m thankful. It’s a blessing for me. It’s always been about fulfilling my promise, which is hopefully one day to bring a championship to this organization, and I’m a firm believer in bringing that here. I know we’re capable. I know it will be done.”

Murray has made two Pro Bowls in three seasons, but he has yet to win a postseason game. The Cardinals lost in the wild card round to the Rams in the worst game of Murray’s career.
