There are rumors going around about Kyler Murray possibly being traded to a different team, sparking speculation about which team he could potentially join.

Kyler Murray Trade Rumors: Odds of Murray’s Next Team
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

Could the Arizona Cardinals potentially trade Kyler Murray if he fails to fully recover from his injury in 2023 or 2024? The team is facing difficulties without their key quarterback at the beginning of the season.

As Kyler Murray gears up for his return, rumors and discussions about a potential trade intensify.

Following a Week 14 Monday Night Football loss to New England where he suffered a torn ACL, top 2019 draft pick Kyler Murray is currently rehabilitating. During his absence, the Cardinals have relied on journeyman Joshua Dobbs to fill in, providing excitement for fans and Arizona sportsbooks. Dobbs has shown promise under the guidance of coach Jonathan Gannon, recording 360 passing yards and a touchdown. However, the team has struggled to hold onto leads in the second half, leading to defeats against Washington and the New York Giants.

As Murray’s comeback approaches, there are discussions about whether new general manager Monti Ossenfort will explore trading the former top pick to improve the team’s chances in the 2024 draft. The rumors stem from the Cardinals’ low Super Bowl odds, currently the lowest in the NFL at +40000. yengols.com has analyzed the possibility of Murray being traded to another team.

When is Murray expected to return from his injury?

Murray has been cleared to come back from the injured reserve list and will begin practicing in mid-October. He must be added to the 53-man roster by November 8 in order to be eligible to play for the rest of the NFL season.

After a 10-month recovery from a torn ACL, Murray made his return to the field.

It has been ten months since I suffered my first major injury, a torn ACL. I have never felt the absence of the game more keenly than I do now, and I am fully committed to making my comeback. During this challenging time, I am discovering new things about myself. I am deeply appreciative of the people who have stood by me, given me their support, and stood up for me. I vow to not disappoint you.

The Cardinals face a tough decision: should they prioritize building around Murray upon his return, or trade him to potentially secure the top pick in the 2024 NFL Draft? With a potential 0-3 start looming, Arizona is viewed as significant underdogs this week. At Hard Rock Bet Arizona and other sportsbooks in the state, the Cardinals are listed as 12.5-point underdogs with a moneyline of +500, even though they are playing at home against Dallas.
