Murray is one of the most controversial players on this list. The Cardinals opted to choose the quarterback as the first overall pick over Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa. They also chose to give him one of the most lucrative contracts in the NFL after three years of only mild success. Murray polarizes a downtrodden fanbase because he hasn’t done anything special (via Outkick).
The best thing they’ve achieved was a solid 11-6 season in 2021. Then they handed him a massive deal and he immediately regressed before tearing his ACL late in the 2022 season. Some players do that because they run out of motivation. There was even talk of using Murray as a trade option in 2023 because he hasn’t impressed. There’s time on his side but he must show them he’s worth the investment.
