Kyler Murray Trade Rumor Surfaces Ahead Of 2023 NFL Draft

Could the Kyler Murray era in Arizona be over?

According to a report from Bleacher Report’s Brad Gagnon, the Cardinals could consider using the third overall pick to draft one of Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson or Will Levis.

“Still, the Cardinals could save $3 million against the 2023 cap by trading Murray after June 1, per Spotrac. His ongoing recovery from the ACL tear might throw a wrench into that, but the fact even a 2024 trade would create significant cap savings for the Cardinals ($38.9 million) could cause them to consider taking C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young or Anthony Richardson with the No. 3 overall pick.

Arizona could then trade Murray later on if they chose to.

Arizona could take one of those guys now and then trade Murray for a slew of 2024 draft capital this summer or fall. Although the Cardinals aren’t expected to be a serious contender in 2023, that would make them one of the NFL’s most intriguing squads in 2024.”

It’s unclear if any team would have interest in Murray considering how large his contract is.

Murray is still owed a ton of money after being giving $189 million guaranteed contract by the Cardinals.
