Former Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds, who signed with the Miami Dolphins during free agency this offseason, is weighing in on the contract stalemate between his former team, the Cardinals, and former teammate quarterback Kyler Murray.
While Murray seemed to be in line for a lucrative contract with the Cardinals this offseason, things have taken a turn for the worse, as no deal has materialized and reports have surfaced stating that Murray’s agent has rescinded his initial proposal.
Edmonds is weighing in:
“I just know, especially knowing how the last two years had ended, meaning 2021 and 2020, and knowing the type of competitor that K1 (Kyler Murray) is, and the type of winner that he wants to be” Edmonds said, according to the Arizona Republic. “I knew there was gonna be, at some point, some things happening. Especially just because, you see the power that quarterbacks have now. They hold the weight, man, and you gotta pay ’em. I feel like K1 obviously got to do what he’s got to do to make sure he gets paid and take care of himself and take care of his family. Just in terms of that drama, you definitely saw it.”
Edmonds clearly has some first hand experience with both the Cardinals organization and Murray, and this drama seems like it is far from over.
