Top QB prospect Kyler Murray will meet with Cardinals

Kyler Murray has expressed interest in starting his NFL career in the desert. He recently said it would be nice to play for the Cardinals.

Now, at the combine, Murray is planning on meeting with the team.

He announced the plans to a pool of reporters Friday. But, not so fast.

The 2018 Heisman Trophy winner out of Oklahoma, who is poised to be the top pick, also has his sights on other teams.

“(I would) love to play in New York (with the Giants)” Murray said.

He then added: “I don’t get to pick myself.”

If Murray is to land in Arizona, he’ll have to compete with Josh Rosen for the starting job barring a trade. Despite the team finishing with the worst mark in the league (3-13), the Cardinals have stood by their rookie quarterback, who played in 14 games — starting in 13 of those — while dealing with a toe injury mid-season.

“Josh Rosen is incredibly talented and one of the most talented throwers you’ll see, a young player I’m excited to work with and develop,” new Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said last month. “It’s hard to find a guy that throws it better.”​

Murray led the Sooners to a 12-2 record and threw for 4,361 yards in 2018. He also ran for 1,001 yards and capped off his final collegiate season as a Heisman Trophy winner.
