The former Oklahoma standout took out the team from his online bios and left just two posts on his Instagram account.
One of those pictures was him and Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb, while the other was a picture of him with the Sooners.
Moves like this especially during the digital age may denote a rift between the two parties.
That’s why football fans and experts were quick to speculate that Murray wants out of Arizona.
However, he published another post to address the rumors regarding the entire episode.
Murray’s Message Is Still Vague
The first overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft took to Instagram and Twitter to explain his side about the intriguing developments.

But while there must be a collective sigh of relief from the Cardinals now that he said something, his words aren’t quite clear.
He mentioned that he loves the game and plays it because he wants to win a championship.
That line could be interpreted as either a confirmation that he won’t go anywhere or a challenge to the Cardinals to do better.
Unfortunately, the Cardinals always fizzle in the end during his three seasons with the team.
They start out strong and end up either missing the playoffs or suffering a humiliating defeat like what they experienced against Super Bowl LVI champion Los Angeles Rams.
Murray also addressed reports that he points fingers to blame others and is a self-centered athlete by saying that he will continue to work hard to improve.
That attitude is normal for any player, but will he do it with the Cardinals starting in 2022 and beyond?
The timing of this matter is critical because the team has until May 2 to pick up his fifth-year option.
That said, the team’s players and coaches must collaborate to find a common ground and make all sides happy.
Who knows, maybe another run with Murray will also win them next season’s Super Bowl on their home turf.
