On Thursday afternoon, the drama surrounding the Arizona Cardinals and star quarterback Kyler Murray took another awkward step.

According to a new report from NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero, the Cardinals have not made a new contract offer to Murray. As a result, other teams are "monitoring" for a potential trade.

"The Cardinals have yet to make a contract offer to Pro Bowl QB Kyler Murray, whose agent, Erik Burkhardt, informed the team weeks ago he was pulling his opening proposal off the table," Pelissero said. "Other teams are monitoring closely; Arizona insists Murray won’t be traded."

Some fans believe trading Murray would be a good thing.

"Trading Murray for a haul would be the smartest thing they could do. He ain't it," one fan said.

Other fans are already lining up new destinations for the former No. 1 overall pick. "One team stands out to me as a possible destination: the New York Giants," one fan said.

"Somehow he'll end up in the AFC West," one fan joked given all of the superstar movement in that division this offseason.

The 2022 offseason has seen several star quarterbacks find new teams. Russell Wilson is with the Denver Broncos while Deshaun Watson found a new home with the Cleveland Browns.

Will Murray be the latest quarterback on the move?
