- According to Maiocco, the 49ers’ players currently on the bubble include RB Jeff Wilson, WR Richie James, WR Jordan Matthews, TE Ross Dwelley, OL Ben Garland, OL Erik Magnuson, OL Joshua Garnett, OL Justin Skule, DL Jullian Taylor, DL Sheldon Day, LB Pita Taumoepenu, CB Greg Mabin, CB Emmanuel Moseley, CB Tim Harris and S Antone Exum.
Cardinals GM Steve Keim said No. 1 overall pick QB Kyler Murray is the team’s outright starter for 2019.
“We didn’t draft him No. 1 overall to ride the pine,” said Keim, via Rich Eisen. “I know that’s a lot to put on his back, but that’s why we drafted him. He’s a fierce competitor and that’s what he did at Oklahoma this year. He put the team on his back. They didn’t have a great defense and he knew he had to score almost every series to give them a chance to win.”
“We’ll see,” Kingsbury told Rome. “We’re still working through all those things. We have Brett Hundley here — who we’re very excited about — but we’ll see where that kind of goes.”
While the Cardinals cannot include a clause that permits him from playing baseball, Albert Breer mentions that Arizona can add playing baseball in the default language tied to his guarantee.
This means that if Murray decides to go to spring training with the A’s, the Cardinals can void whatever guarantees are left in his contract and in turn make it easier to cut him.
