The Cardinals and Kyler Murray have had a drama-filled offseason over the possibility of a new contract extension.

In recent weeks, the tension seemed to be resolving, with both sides seemingly in a good place.

This morning, the news broke of a deal incoming...and then was agreed to a few moments later, seemingly.

And then the money came in per Adam Schefter.

This lines up with many projections that had been made, primarily focused on that $46 million per year figure. However, the deal has been for 5 years, through 2028 adding onto his original deal, rather than 6 years. This locks Murray up through 2028 and GM Steve Keim and HC Kliff Kingsbury through 2027.

Thoughts on the extension, Cardinals fans?
