Kyler Murray wanted to be an Arizona Cardinal

NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Kyler Murray has had some issues in the media heading into the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Arizona Cardinals still wanted Murray and the truth was, Murray wanted to be an Arizona Cardinal.

That is big in this climate.

A great player wants to be with Kliff Kingsbury and the new Arizona Cardinals.

He wants to be the face of the team, he wants to be the one that moves the team forward.

He said as much after the Cardinals made him in the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Murray talked about his excitement for the Cardinals, but he also talked about how much he knew the Cardinals liked him coming out.

Yet, it’s the special relationship that Kliff and Kyler have that makes this seem like such a special pairing. Something that could be the beginning of a long and beautiful friendship.

Murray is a special talent and he and Kingsbury will put forth an offense like we have not seen in the NFL. Now, can that lead to wins, that’s all that matters.
