Could Kyler Murray be an option for the Broncos?

Feb 7, 2022, 5:03 PM

If the oddsmakers are correct, and so often they are, then it appears the Denver Broncos could be just a quarterback away from a legitimate shot at hoisting the Lombardi Trophy next season.

But what if that gunslinger doesn’t come in the form of Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson? Could another young Pro Bowl-level quarterback be available for Denver to snatch up?

Arizona Cardinals signal-caller Kyler Murray sent the NFL world into speculation mode on Monday — a day after throwing for 160 yards and three touchdowns in the Pro Bowl — as he appears to have scrubbed all references to his current team from his Twitter and Instagram profiles.

Murray also reportedly unfollowed the Cardinals on both platforms.

The top pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, Murray has one season remaining on his four-year rookie contract — and it’s likely Arizona will exercise his fifth-year option.

In three pro seasons, Murray has thrown for 11,480 yards with 70 touchdowns and 34 interceptions. He led the Cardinals to a 9-5 record and a postseason berth in 2021, though Arizona got clobbered in wild card round 34-11 by the eventual NFC champion Los Angeles Rams.

Whether Murray could land in Denver is wholly unknown at this point, but it seems as if another quarterback is among the options for the orange and blue in 2022.
