Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has been the talk of the offseason for the team, whether it has been his contract status, what he is showing up for in the voluntary part of the offseason or his leadership skills.

He arrived at OTAs (voluntary organized team activities) Wednesday along with other team leaders. One of those players was starting right tackle Kelvin Beachum.

Beachum, who has been asked on multiple occasions this offseason about the leadership and maturation of Murray, was asked about it again after Wednesday’s practice.

He is seeing what he needs to see.

“I just walked by the team room and he was leading 7-on-7 film work,” he told reporters.

Murray, entering his fourth season in the league, “is putting in the work.”

“It’s been a maturation process like I said this entire offseason, and he’s continuing to get better and he’s continuing to mature,” Beachum added. “I think when you look at somebody who you want to see progress week in and week out, year in and year out, that maturation process is really starting to take place.”

The part about being a leader on the field is not a concern that Beachum has had.

“I think he has always had that presence. I don’t think that was ever in question,” he said. “I think it’s all the intangibles that he is continuing to fine-tune.”

It sounds like perhaps there isn’t as much to worry about with Murray as many would like us to think.
