The Cardinals have reportedly decided to pick up Kyler Murray's fifth-year option, per Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic.

"The Arizona Cardinals will be picking up QB Kyler Murray's fifth-year contract by the May 2 deadline, which guarantees him a salary of around $28 million," McManaman tweeted. Adding, "Both sides are expected to eventually agree to a reworked deal at some point this summer."

The NFL world reacted to the team's plan to picking up the two-time Pro Bowl QB's option on social media. "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO," a Cardinals fan replied in all-caps.

"Kyler beat Baker," commented a Browns fan.

"We celebrating at da game," tweeted a Phoenix sports fan.

"Kyler Murray will get paid by the Cardinals," said another. "Just a matter of when."

"Cards keep coach and GM but get no new players. Now they extend the contract of they whiny QB. What a mess."

"And people think Elon is wasting money buying Twitter..." replied another.

"Big news," commented Cardinals writer Blake Murphy.


"[Cordial] patience will pay off for K1 and AZ Cards," said another Cardinals fan. "Now we can silence the nonsense."

A step in the right direction for Kyler and the Cards.
