Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb on potentially reuniting with Kyler Murray: “That’s my guy, man”

The standout wide receiving prospect raves about the Arizona Cardinals coaching staff and discussed a potential reunion with his former Heisman winning QB

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Could there be a reunion in the desert for Kyler Murray coming?

At the NFL combine, players and coaches

The official NFL Draft twitter account sent out this comment from standout Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb when asked about if he would like to be drafted by the Cardinals and be back again catching passes from his former Heisman-winning quarterback:

Lamb had a lot of quotes and used “honor” a lot (notably when also talking about playing for Jon Gruden) but here’s what he said when asked about Kyler:

The Cardinals have also met with other receivers, but this will be something to follow over the next few months.

Previously in an interview with Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic, Murray stumped for “his guy” Lamb and has passed on his comments to the coaching staff, as before.

What did the coaching staff and scouting department think?

Hear it in their own words:

Cardinals GM Steve Keim also seemed to note the team’s need for a wide receiver.

There’s not simply one option here, of course. The Cardinals have other needs on their defense or even their offensive line (despite Kliff Kingsbury’s positive comments about RT Justin Murray).

For the interview with Lamb at the NFL Combine, here’s a video in his own words.

What are your thoughts, Cardinals fans? Lamb and Murray seem to both want to play together and Arizona does have a need.

Should the Arizona Cardinals reunite the explosive combo?

Or draft a different position at #8 overall?
