A photograph has surfaced that appears to prove that Arizona Cardinals rookie Kyler Murray is shorter than his listed height
For the past few months, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has had to deal with an issue that just won’t go away. The rookie was sadly mistaken if he thought that the questions about his height were a thing of the past.
A photo that was taken at the NFL Players Association rookie premiere has reopened that can of worms. Murray appears in the picture, standing right next to the Baltimore Ravens’ Marquise Brown. Whether by coincidence or not, the photographer who put the players in position for the snapshot has once again stirred up the controversy.
The photo in question clearly indicates that Murray, who is listed at 5-foot-10, is shorter than the equally diminutive Brown. Why is that a problem you ask? Brown, a wide receiver who was a teammate of Murray’s at the University of Oklahoma, is listed at just 5-foot-9.
Unless those who viewed the picture are gazing at an optical illusion, there’s no way that Murray was appropriately measured at the NFL Combine. There’s a very good possibility that shenanigans may have gone on at Indianapolis’ annual event. The 5-foot-10 measurement in Indy was considered a win for Murray and his agents, who were concerned that the Heisman Trophy winner’s slight size would hurt his draft stock.
Another red flag should’ve gone up at Murray’s pro day, which took place a couple of weeks after the combine. The signal-caller refused to be measured again, despite the fact that doubts about his height remained. It’s evident that Murray and his camp had something to hide.
Murray can silence all of the skeptics with an excellent performance in 2019. There’s no denying that the lack of size could be a concern, however. The Cards’ organization and everyone who cheers for the team is hoping that Murray can overcome that obstacle.
