Justin Murray is one of the best stories in the NFL and his story continues to get better.
The Arizona Cardinals announced they have signed their lead backup offensive lineman to a two-year contract extension.
From the team:
The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has signed offensive lineman Justin Murray to a two-year contract extension that will keep Murray under contract through the conclusion of 2022 season. In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.
Murray (6-5, 315) has appeared in all three games this year following last season when he played in a career-high 14 games (12 starts) with the Cardinals after being claimed off waivers from the Raiders. He helped the Cardinals offense finish the 2019 season with the NFL’s 10th-ranked rushing offense (1,990 yards) that averaged a single-season franchise-record 5.03 yards per carry (second in the league).
The 27-year old Murray entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with Denver in 2016 out of the University of Cincinnati and has spent time on the active rosters of the Bengals and Raiders in addition to the practice squads of the Broncos, Buccaneers, and Saints during his career.
Congratulations to Murray and the Cardinals.
