Kyler Murray isn’t the only quarterback that Marquise Brown has played alongside before.

When the Arizona Cardinals acquired Marquise Brown from the Baltimore Ravens in a shocking draft-night trade, everyone instantly thought of how Brown would get to be reunited with his college quarterback, Kyler Murray.

Both had played together at Oklahoma for a season. Their efforts lit up scoreboards wherever they went, and when Brown left for the NFL, it was uncertain if they’d ever be on the same team again.

Here we are in 2022, and they are reunited. But Brown has another connection in the quarterback room- and that’s third-string quarterback Trace McSorely.

McSorely was the team’s quarterback that played most of the infamous Tuesday afternoon game of all time between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers in 2020.

Arizona Cardinals WR’s connections to quarterback room make a move look even better.

Was trading for Brown the night of the draft really necessary? That’s debatable. What isn’t debatable is that Brown is part of the Arizona Cardinals now.

With Brown’s history of playing alongside Murray and McSorley, the connection these three have will only work in the Cardinals’ favor. Unfortunately, Murray hasn’t been able to stay healthy (a trend that hopefully changes this year) for a whole season yet.

But should Murray miss time, Colt McCoy, and McSorley are solid backups that should make Cardinals fans comfortable (who else just noticed all the Cardinals’ quarterbacks’ last names all start with the letter “M”?).

McSorley has a chance to erase the painful memories of Chris Streveler in 2020, who did his best to will the Cardinals to a playoff appearance, but it didn’t work out. We’ll see what McSorley has in the preseason.

Next. These corners must be pursued by the Arizona Cardinals after Jeff Gladney's passing. dark
