Kyler Murray Agent Puts Out Statement On QB's Behalf

Emphasizes Murray is committed to Cardinals but also wants new deal

On Friday, Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said he in the category of those who love Kyler Murray.

Monday morning, the quarterback's agent, Erik Burkhardt, released a statement that Murray is all-in with the Arizona Cardinals – but also makes clear Murray is seeking a contract extension.

"Kyler wants to be direct with loyal Arizona Cardinals fans and the great community of the Valley in stating his two very important goals and objectives," the lengthy statement begins.

"He absolutely wants to be your long-term QB. He desperately wants to win the Super Bowl."

"Achieving both goals will take incredible commitment from himself and the entire organization."

Murray became eligible for a contract extension after the regular season ended. On Friday, Bidwill was asked about a potential extension. Bidwill said such deals for quarterbacks are complicated and often are executed later in the offseason. The Cardinals also have pending free agents -- and other team's free-agents-to-be -- that are priorities right now.

Free agency begins on March 16.

The Cardinals' braintrust is in Indianapolis this week. GM Steve Keim and coach Kliff Kingsbury are scheduled to meet with the media on Tuesday.

Former NFL agent Joel Corry, now an analyst with CBS sports, noted on Twitter the earliest a QB contract extension for a QB going into his fourth year was that of Ryan Tannehill in Miami. That got done on May 15. The next soonest was Carson Wentz in Philadelphia, which got done June 10.
