The Kansas City Chiefs locked up their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the next 12 seasons with a new contract. He had two years remaining on his rookie contract and received a 10-year extension work up to $503 million.
Is there another quarterback in the league a team would take for the next 12 years? Some NFL Network analysts were asked that question.
While some might say Lamar Jackson or Deshaun Watson, two former NFL players, including a former Arizona Cardinals star, would pick current Cardinals starting quarterback Kyler Murray.
The answer is nobody! Twelve years in the NFL feels like an eternity. No other quarterback has proven that type of worth or is young enough to make me believe he can carry my team for that long. I know that’s not the answer you were looking for, so for the sake of providing an answer, I’ll say … Kyler Murray.
I’m taking the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year, Kyler Murray. The kid is a ripe 22 years old and the centerpiece of an Arizona Cardinals team on the comeup. The 2019 No. 1 overall pick lived up to the hype as a dual-threat quarterback who thrilled in Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense with impressive throws and timely rushes. Some might argue that Lamar Jackson would be a better choice, but Murray’s playing style isn’t quite as concerning as the reigning league MVP’s.
