Kyler Murray's first National Football League contract dwarfs MLB signing bonus with A's

Rookie first-round pick Kyler Murray shakes the hand of team president Michael Bidwill after Murray signed his first NFL contract Thursday

Kyler Murray has inked his rookie deal with the Arizona Cardinals. I said for months before the draft that the Cardinals should take him first overall. His salary cap number was set at $6.39 million with a signing bonus of $23.59 million, figures that were locked in by the collective bargaining agreement.

The Arizona Cardinals have signed Kyler Murray in time for their rookie minicamp.

The Cardinals also signed second-round cornerback Byron Murphy, third-round defensive end Zach Allen, sixth-round wide receiver KeeSean Johnson, seventh-round offensive lineman Joshua Miles and seventh-round tight end Caleb Wilson to their standard four-year deals.

The rookies begin their minicamp Friday, with practices running through Sunday. And, oh yea, he also won the Heisman Trophy, which all but assured his place as a first-round National Football League pick.

Murray was taken No. 1 overall by the Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft, after a single season playing for the Sooners.

Murray's contract comes with it a fifth-year team option for the 2023 season. After he was drafted in the first round in 2018 by the Oakland Athletics, Murray was given a signing bonus of $4.66 million.

Murray made the most of his one season as Oklahoma's starting quarterback, accounting for more than 5,300 yards and 53 touchdowns after backing up Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield in 2017.

That left the Cardinals with a decision with the No. 1 pick and they opted to use it on Murray, who beat teams with his arm and legs in college.
