Why did Kyler Murray get a statue in Oklahoma?BY: DONNA KAREN ROBINSON
The Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is currently one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
Murray just showed off the Cardinals’ new jersey on social media and now this week, his legacy has been cemented at the University of Oklahoma.
Kyler Murray was drafted by the Cardinals as the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The Arizona Cardinals gave Kyler Murray a 5-year extension worth up to $230.5 million, including nearly $160 million in guarantees.
Before becoming one of the highest-paid players in NFL history, as a reward for doing that, a statue of him has been made to celebrate his legacy.
No, not every star player gets a statue. That privilege is reserved for the Heisman Trophy winners.
And as a Heisman Trophy winner in 2018, Murray gets a statue of him at Heisman Park.
Murray gets a statue of him cemented right next to all 7 Heisman winners from the University of Oklahoma, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Baker Mayfield.
It looks like Kyler Murray made a good choice to enter the NFL Draft in 2019 as he became the No.1 draft pick and eventually became the face of the Cardinals franchise.
