Kyler Murray’s absence from OTAs has sparked debate amongst Arizona Cardinals fans.

Another off-season, another set of drama involving the OTAs that the Arizona Cardinals are running.

Last season it was the mind-numbing decision to reduce the OTAs count from 10 to just three sessions, a choice the team probably regrets as they collapsed late in the season for the second-straight season.

Now with Kyler Murray choosing to not attend OTAs in hope that he gets a new contract from the Cardinals, everyone has fresh talking points to work with.

Should Murray get a pass for not being at OTAs? Should he be getting criticism from his teammates and NFL analysts?

Both sides are going to be analyzed here, and a final decision will be made once both sides have been considered.

So let’s get into why Kyler Murray should get a pass for skipping the Cardinals’ OTAs.
