The drama surrounding Kyler Murray‘s future with the Arizona Cardinals could be set to reignite.

Murray’s agent, Erik Burkhardt, informed the Cardinals several weeks ago that he was pulling his opening contract proposal off the table, sources told Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The quarterback reportedly has also yet to receive an extension offer from Arizona.

Other teams are closely monitoring Murray’s situation, added Pelissero. The NFC West club has insisted it doesn’t intend to trade the 2019 No. 1 pick.

Burkhardt announced at the end of February that he had submitted a proposal to Arizona to create “long-term stability” for the organization and Murray. He added the deal would “match the current quarterback market” while allowing the team to build a championship-caliber roster.

Friction between Murray and the Cardinals arose following the team’s playoff exit to the Los Angeles Rams.

The club was reportedly looking for more leadership out of the quarterback. Meanwhile, Murray apparently felt the Cardinals used him as a scapegoat for their blowout postseason loss.

The 24-year-old also fueled speculation about his future by scrubbing all mentions of the Cardinals from his Instagram account in early February.

Murray is set to earn around $5.5 million in the fourth year of his rookie contract.
