Nineteen 2019 first-rounders had their fifth-year options exercised

Mike Florio and Chris Simms explain why it was an easy decision for the Cardinals to pick up Kyler Murray’s fifth-year option and discuss what the future holds for the QB.

Monday was the deadline for teams to exercise their fifth-year options on the contracts of 2019 first-round picks and 19 of those options wound up being exercised.

That group includes first-overall pick Kyler Murray, who may land a long-term contract extension before the start of the 2022 season. All the players in the class are now eligible to sign such deals and the Cardinals said that they plan to work toward an agreement in the coming weeks.

All players who had their options exercised now have fully guaranteed salaries for the 2023 season.

Three players picked in the top 10 — Raiders defensive end Clelin Ferrell, Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, and Steelers linebacker Devin Bush — did not have their options exercised. Two first-round picks — the late Dwayne Haskins and Chiefs cornerback DeAndre Baker — did not have options to pick up because they were released by their original teams.
