The way forward for one NFL quarterback is now settled after the Arizona Cardinals and Kyler Murray agreed on a five-year contract extension. The deal ensures Murray $30 Million in 2022 and over $100 million over the subsequent three seasons. One other quarterback, Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson, is probably going taking notes of Murray’s new deal as he tries to work on his personal extension with the Ravens. Nonetheless, just like the Cardinals’ QB, contract talks in Baltimore have been gradual to progress (largely as a consequence of Jackson’s willingness to attend for the market to play out.) So, who would you like in your staff, Kyler Murray or Lamar Jackson?

The NFC West has, in idea, opened up a little bit bit for Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals. Positive, they’ve the reigning Tremendous Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, however with Russell Wilson now a member of the Denver Broncos and Jimmy Garoppolo more likely to be traded by the San Francisco 49ers, Murray needs to be, at worst, the second-best quarterback within the division. With Matthew Stafford and his win-now Rams probably unable to maintain their staff collectively within the close to future after promoting out to win a hoop final season, the NFC West may very well be the area of Kyler Murray and the high-flying Arizona offense that he leads.

Now let’s check out the opposite QB on this dialog… or debate.

Ever since profitable his MVP award, Lamar Jackson has both plateaued and even regressed, forcing the Baltimore Ravens to struggle more durable for wins whereas nonetheless arising quick within the AFC Playoffs, going 1-Three since 2018 and lacking the postseason altogether final yr. The Ravens could not have to fret concerning the Steelers when combating for AFC North supremacy after Ben Roethlisberger retired. Nonetheless, they nonetheless have to fret concerning the Browns (sneaky good staff) and the Bengals (AFC consultant in the newest Tremendous Bowl) to cope with. And with Deshaun Watson, maybe, not dealing with a year-long suspension in Cleveland, Lamar Jackson stands out as the third-best quarterback within the AFC North, making his highway to the postseason as robust as ever and one he has confirmed is tough to navigate.

Kyler Murray has confirmed he can throw from inside and out of doors the pocket and is without doubt one of the finest deep ball throwers within the NFL. Lamar Jackson, then again, has a tough time throwing exterior the numbers, one thing his personal staff has needed to make excuses for in recent times. Murray is far more like Russell Wilson since he is aware of working is finest used for getting time and lengthening performs or choosing up first downs and retaining drives alive. Whereas Lamar Jackson depends an excessive amount of on utilizing his legs first and his arm second, thus making him the lesser of those two quarterbacks in my guide. 

Whereas the case might be made that Arizona was compelled to provide Kyler Murray a contract second solely to Aaron Rodgers when it comes to annual common worth since ranging from scratch could be a catastrophe for the franchise, Murray is primed and able to make the NFC West and the whole convention his. In contrast, the doubts and worries about Lamar Jackson are nonetheless within the air over M&T Financial institution Stadium, with the Ravens figuring out full properly that making a $45 or $50 million per yr funding of their present quarterback could also be an even bigger mistake than letting him stroll as a free agent  Kyler Murray and his head coach Kliff Kingsbury have confirmed lots of people incorrect thus far in Arizona, whereas Lamar Jackson has gone the alternative approach, proving his MVP voters they might have jumped the gun on his Corridor of Fame enshrinement … and proper now, with the previous beneath contract and the latter not, it seems the Baltimore Ravens could agree with me. 

So I gave you my causes on why I’d take Kyler Murray over Lamar Jackson, however I wish to know who’re you selecting?
