Kyler Murray wasn’t happy that he showed up in Myles Garrett’s quarterback graveyard this Halloween season.
Garrett won the Halloween decorations contest this year. The Browns star defensive end put a dozen or so gravestones with NFL quarterback’s names on them. Murray made the list.
The Arizona Cardinals star confronted Garrett about it following the Cardinals-Browns blowout last weekend. Garrett explained that he only did it for some “added motivation.”
“Why you got me in the graveyard, dog? … At least mine didn’t have ‘RIP’ over it,” Murray said.
"Why you got me in the graveyard?"

Myles Garrett continued the exchange via Twitter on Thursday.
He told Kyler Murray it’s “all love” and that he’ll add a special Christmas decoration for the Cardinals quarterback later this year.
“You know it’s all love @K1 I’ll toss a baby yoda in my Christmas decorations for you,” Garrett said.
Take a look.

We’re not sure exactly where the “baby yoda” reference comes from.
It could be from when Kyler Murray celebrated a touchdown with a seated meditation pose earlier this season. But Murray then told reporters after the game that he’d never seen a Star Wars movie.
“I’ve never watched Star Wars in my life. … It’s too long,” Murray said.

The good news is that Kyler Murray won’t show up in any quarterback graveyard this Christmas season. The bad news is he will apparently show up as “baby yoda.”
That’s a win in Murray’s book.
