The Arizona Cardinals announced Thursday they have signed first overall pick Kyler Murray to a four-year deal, along with five other members of the 2019 draft class.

Murray’s deal is worth over $35 million fully guaranteed and includes a team option for the fifth year, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The quarterback, who was also a first-round pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, has language in his deal that says his guarantees are void if he pursues a baseball career, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio.

Second-round pick Byron Murphy, defensive lineman Zach Allen, sixth-round selection KeeSean Johnson, offensive lineman Josh Miles and tight end Caleb Wilson also signed four-year deals.

The quarterback Murray was the top selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, one year after the Cardinals traded up in the first round to pick quarterback Josh Rosen. On day two of the draft, the team traded Rosen to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the 62nd overall pick and a 2020 fifth-round pick. Arizona used that pick on UMass wide receiver Andy Isabella.

Isabella, wideout Hakeem Butler, safety Deionte Thompson, offensive lineman Lamont Gaillard and defensive lineman Michael Dogbe are the remaining selections by the Cardinals that have yet to be signed.

Rookie mini-camp for the Cardinals begins on Friday.
