Cardinals and Quarterback Agree on Monster Extension

The Arizona Cardinals and two-time Pro Bowl quarterback Kyler Murray have agreed on a five-year extension worth $230.5 million, with an average of $46.1 million annually, per Ian Rapoport. 

The deal features $160-million in guarantees.

The deal makes Murray the second highest average paid player in the NFL, behind only Aaron Rodgers ($50.1 million). 

The $160-million guaranteed ranks second in the league behind Deshaun Watson's $230-million. 

The twenty-four-year-old had two years left on his rookie contract and was in line to make $5.3-million this coming season. 

Murray threw 3,787 passing yards this past season (14th in NFL), 24 touchdowns (12th in NFL), and 10 interceptions (9th in NFL) across 14 games. The Cardinals finished with an 11-6 record, making the playoffs but being eliminated by the Rams in the Wild Card game.
