With Injuries Necessitating Roster Adds, Kyler Murray Speaks Up

Quarterback wants to at least 'say something'

With the Cardinals now without Maxx Williams, coach Kliff Kingsbury was asked if the Cardinals -- even after adding veteran Richard Rodgers to the practice squad -- could still look to find another tight end.

"We're always looking," Kingsbury said.

So too, apparently, is quarterback Kyler Murray, who has made sure to give his input on such matters.

"He talks about it a lot," Kingsbury said with a chuckle. "He likes to get his opinion out there, for sure, He has a little juice in those conversations."

Murray chuckled himself when he heard Kingsbury's characterization. It isn't as if Murray is expecting the Cardinals to bend to his will when it comes to player acquisition. It's more like, you can't win if you don't play.

"Over the years I've just learned, the least you can do is say something," Murray said. "If it doesn't get listened to or (used), it is what it is. But I'd be mad at myself if I didn't say something. I'd rather send a text or say whatever I've got to say, and let them do it."
