I’m all about that quarantine life reveals Arizona’s star quarterback

On a recent zoom call with a reporter from the Cardinals’ official website, Kyler Murray spoke about dealing with COVID-19 and practice restrictions before the 2020 season. “I’m built for the quarantine life. I don’t really go outside anyway, other than working out and throwing the football.”

“We would have all loved to have been on the grass, getting the hundreds of reps he would’ve gotten, but just talking through film with him, listening to how he is seeing the game now, his understanding of concepts, he has definitely taken a step (forward) in that area. That’s all we can hope for right now,” Murray said.

Murray further added “The physical stuff is going to be there. He has worked really hard, throwing and doing all those things, but the way he’s seeing the game, the way we are getting on the same page, I know that will continue.” The 22-year old was a first-round NFL draft pick by the Cardinals last year. He was also picked in the first round of the MLB draft. However, he opted to play in the NFL. The former Oklahoma Sooners player became the shortest quarterback (5 ft 10 1⁄8) in NFL history. He upstaged former QB Johnny Manziel who was 5’11”.
