Well, the Cardinals want to put those ideas further in the rearview mirror. The organization’s official social media account on Monday posted a message backing Murray before the start of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

“Our franchise QB,” the Cardinals captioned their post on X, formerly known as Twitter.
