The Philadelphia Eagles have the trade ammunition to pull this blockbuster off

Again, the Cardinals would probably prefer not to trade Murray to another NFC team, but the Philadelphia Eagles have plenty of viable trade assets that could entice Arizona. Though The Birds already made a complicate trade involving draft picks with the Saints, they still have two first-round picks this year to potentially move. They also have a cheaper quarterback in Jalen Hurts.

While Hurts may be a lesser version of Murray, he has two years left on his rookie contract at a second-round price range. His teammates love the guy and he could help the Cardinals stay afloat in the deep NFC West. As for the Eagles, they would be acquiring the most talented quarterback in the division. They could honestly challenge the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East crown this fall.

The only issue here is the Eagles and Cardinals will be competing for the same NFC playoff berths.

The Pittsburgh Steelers could land their heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger

It may be clunky initially, but the Pittsburgh Steelers could be a candidate to trade for Murray in a blockbuster deal with the Cardinals. They already missed out on Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson. Pittsburgh was also not interested in acquiring Deshaun Watson. Though fit may be an issue for the diminutive Murray playing in the harsh AFC North, the Steelers need a quarterback.

Right now, the Steelers are clearly fourth in the division at quarterback. Joe Burrow and Lamar Jackson are not going anywhere. While there is some uncertainty surrounding when Watson will debut with the Cleveland Browns, the Steelers will not be consistently playoff-viable with Mitch Trubisky under center. Trading for Murray is a huge gamble, but their culture of winning is strong.

The problem in trading for Murray is the Steelers only have the No. 20 pick in the upcoming draft.
