Former Cardinals think Kyler Murray will leave Arizona

Offseason clash between Kyler Murray and Arizona Cardinals continues with starting quarterback skipping offseason practices and saying he won’t attend unless he has a new contract .

According to two former Cardinals, however, Murray already has his foot out thanks to the team’s culture.

On CBS Sports’ “All Things Considered” podcast this week, former Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and running back Chase Edmonds expressed how much the whole debacle surprises them.

“When you see (good) cultural teams in the NFL, like the Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers, those teams – no matter how talented they look, my brother, top to bottom — they just know how to find a way to win fucking games,” said Edmonds, who played with Murray for three seasons before joining the Miami Dolphins. “Even like Mike Tomlin with the Steelers of Pittsburgh. Some teams have this culture, and some don’t. I feel like that’s kind of what it was for us.”

The two veterans agreed that Arizona’s view of how to win was not aligned with Murray’s, and that even a big paycheck wouldn’t erase how the Cardinals failed at the end of the last two seasons.

“I just know, especially knowing how the last two years (have) ended, i.e. 2021 and 2020, and knowing the type of competitor that K1 is, and the type of winner that he wants to be,” Edmonds said. “I knew there would, at some point, be things that would happen.”

Peterson, who played a decade in Arizona and co-hosts the podcast, said he thinks Murray is too competitive to stay with the Cardinals based on the way they do things.

“He’s a competitor,” Peterson said. “And I feel like, no disrespect to the Arizona Cardinals, I feel like they don’t put the team in a position to be successful year after year. And Kyler Murray isn’t going to stay. sit and wait for that.”
