Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is about to get a 2XP boost, and it’s not from Call of Duty.
The Arizona Cardinals are bringing in reinforcements. Looking to respawn after a 2-4 start, Kyler Murray is set up for the remainder of the season with some serious weapons to utilize.
On Monday morning following a loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Cardinals traded for Robbie Anderson. Anderson was kicked off the Carolina Panthers sideline on Sunday which more or less signaled he and the team would be parting ways sooner or later. Sooner it was!
While Anderson’s presence in the receiver room will help boost the Cardinals — who are 17th in the NFL in receiving yards — another player is returning to the lineup soon that will give Kyler Murray yet another player to throw to.
Kyler Murray also getting Deandre Hopkins back from suspension soon
Deandre Hopkins has missed each of the first six games of the season due to a suspension. Hopkins was suspended in May for violating the league’s PED policy. Hopkins still claims innocence over the violation.
Last season, Hopkins averaged 13.6 yards per reception on 4.2 per game. No Cardinal has averaged higher than Marquise Brown’s 11.3 so far this year. Hopkins is one of the more explosive and dynamic receivers in the game and provides Murray with another needed option to throw to.
Through six weeks last year, Hopkins had tallied six touchdowns. This year the Cardinals have six receiving touchdowns total.
Next up for the Cardinals are the Saints, Vikings, Seahawks, Rams, and Niners. These five games are crucial because they’re somehow just a game out of first place in the AFC West and have three games in a row against each of their opponents.
We’ll see if the care package helps Kyler.
