Murray and Cardinals agree to an extension

- — Mark Maske

The offseason unrest between Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals dissipated Thursday as the quarterbac­k agreed to a lucrative contract extension that places him among the NFL’S highest-paid players at his position.

The five-year extension is worth $230.5 million, including $160 million in guaranteed money, according to a person familiar with the deal.

The $46.1 million per-season average ranks second in the league to the $50.3 million average annual value of the threeyear, $150.815 million extension quarterbac­k Aaron Rodgers signed with the Green Bay Packers in March.

Murray, 24, now is under contract with the Cardinals through the 2028 season. He had two seasons remaining on his rookie deal.
