The Arizona Cardinals announced Thursday that they’ve signed six draft picks including first-round QB Kyler Murray to four-year rookie contracts.
The Cardinals also signed:
|4.||103.||ARI||Hakeem Butler||WR||Iowa State|
|6.||174.||ARI||KeeSean Johnson||WR||Fresno State||Signed|
|7.||248.||ARI||Joshua Miles||OT||Morgan State||Signed|
Murray, 21, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by the Cardinals after making the decision to pursue an NFL career despite being drafted by the Oakland A’s last year.
According to OverTheCap.com, Murray receives a four-year, $35,158,644 deal that includes a $23,589,924 signing bonus.
The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Cardinals to pick up in 2022. It’s worth mentioning that the fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury and won’t prevent the two parties from working on a long-term extension.
During this three-year college career at Texans A&M and Oklahoma, Murray completed 68.7 percent of his passes for 5,098 yards, 48 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,369 and 12 touchdowns over the course of 28 games.
