Kyler Murray could earn a pass on OTAs for these reasons
First things first, Kyler Murray has improved this team on paper since he arrived in 2019.
Going from five to 11 wins in three years has marked progress unlike anything the team had seen since the Carson Palmer days.
Secondly, Murray helped end the team’s playoff drought which lasted five seasons. Additionally, he has played as an MVP candidate for the first half of the past two seasons. One could even include the “Hail Murray” as a list of qualifications.
These accomplishments are the biggest of many that Murray’s had in his career. Those are enough reasons for one to be indifferent about him not being present at OTAs.
He’s also the first franchise quarterback the team has drafted since Neil Lomax and/or Jake Plummer. What else needs to be said?
