POLL: Which Cardinals player should be next to get contract extension?

·1 min read

The Arizona Cardinals took care of their most pressing contractual issue Thursday. They agreed to terms with quarterback Kyler Murray on a contract extension worth $230.5 million that keeps him under contract through the 2028 season.

With that contract out of the way, there are a few players who are next in line for extensions.

Cornerback Byron Murphy, safety Jalen Thompson, left tackle D.J. Humphries and defensive end Zach Allen all enter the final years of their contracts. Receiver Hollywood Brown, whom they acquired in a draft-day trade this offseason, has just two years left on his deal.

All are expected to be major contributors this coming season.

Murphy, Thompson and Allen are all on their rookie contracts still. Any new deal would likely increase their hit against the salary cap. Humphries, though, has the largest cap hit on the team this season at more than $19 million. An extension would create cap space for this season.

Which player should be the next order of business for the Cardinals? Vote in the poll below.
