Kyler Murray had a 2022 season he wishes he could just forget about.

Although he got a new contract with the Arizona Cardinals this year, he hasn’t had a good season at all.

His 3-8 record for the season was his worst since his rookie season.

His 2022 touchdown percentage, yards per game average and QBR were the worst of his career.

However, the worst part of his season was an ACL injury he suffered against the New England Patriots.

With the injury dating back more than a month, NFL insider Ian Rapoport provided an update on his injury.

According to him, the young quarterback is taking his time to make sure his ACL is at 100% before his return.

The move puts Murray’s return midway through the 2023 season at the latest.

While Murray wants to protect himself from further injury, the Cardinals also have a decision to make regarding him.

With the team having the third overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, they can easily draft a quarterback.

However, if they do, they must trade Murray before his contract causes a $59.2 million dead cap.

While a trade is the best option if they’re drafting a quarterback, it must happen before March 25.

If it happens after that date, the trade will cost them more money.

But another issue is finding a team willing to trade for a quarterback who will miss most of the next NFL season.

However, an exchange will probably never happen.

That means the Cardinals will have to wait until the end of 2023 before they get their star quarterback back on the court.
