Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has agreed to terms on a five-year extension that will lock him in with Arizona through the 2028 season, the organization confirmed.
The contract awarded to Murray will pay him a total of $230.5 million with $160 million guaranteed — making him the second-highest paid quarterback, annually, behind only Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. Murray will receive $30 million in Year 1, $68 million over the first two years and $106.15 million over the first three years of his new deal.
The 24-year-old Murray, a two-time Pro Bowler, joined the Cardinals in 2019 as the first-overall pick. Upon reuniting of Murray with head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the two have led the Cardinals to being contenders in the NFC West. In three seasons with the Cardinals, Murray has a combined record of 22-23-1, having thrown for 11,480 yards and 70 touchdowns to 34 interceptions while also adding 314 career rushing yards and 20 career rushing touchdowns on his resume.
