Recent trade idea sends Cardinals QB Kyler Murray to the NFC East
Speculation about the Arizona Cardinals possibly trading Kyler Murray isn’t going away and the latest idea has him landing with the New York Giants.
If the Arizona Cardinals were to even listen to any trade offers for quarterback Kyler Murray during the next few months, could the New York Giants be a team that places a call to Cardinals general manager Steve Keim?
Recently, Doug Rush of The Giants Wire threw out a trade scenario that involves Arizona sending their starting quarterback in a trade to the Giants.
In exchange for Murray, Rush has the Cardinals receiving New York quarterback Daniel Jones, a third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, and a first-round selection in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Is this Arizona Cardinals trade idea that sends Kyler Murray to the New York Giants believable?
When it comes to this scenario for a possible deal involving Murray, it’s more believable than some of the other trade ideas that have been suggested recently that include the Arizona quarterback.
However, the Cardinals would probably like to receive a whole lot more in a return package for Murray than Jones, a third-round draft pick, and a first-round draft selection.
If Arizona were going to even consider sending their two-time Pro Bowl quarterback out the door, then an offer would likely have to include at least two first-round draft picks. It would have to either be two selections in the first round of this year’s draft or one in this year’s draft and the other in the 2023 draft.
That is likely the minimum requirement the Cardinals would need to even listen to a trade offer that involves Murray. Which means the trade idea that Rush suggested seems very unrealistic.
