Arizona Cardinals fan goes all-in with new Kyler Murray tattoo
Fans and tattoos of their favorite players or teams, an occurrence in the sports world that appears when you least expect it.
Every year, there will be those who take their fandom to the next level, forever inking themselves with the likeness of their favorite player.
But sometimes they are premature — just ask those who have gone out to get a Super Bowl tattoo just to see their team fail on the biggest stage.
For one Cardinals fan hailing from Australia, they’re hoping their offseason tattoo of quarterback Kyler Murray brings some added victories in the win-loss column and some added zeros to the signal caller’s bank account.

“My new tattoo of @AZCardinals @K1,” @Baileygodees tweeted on Friday. “Pay the man!!!!”
Since posting the photo of the new ink, Bailey has gotten both negative and positive feedback.
Count tight end Maxx Williams as a fan of the detailed work.
“I like it!” Williams tweeted after seeing the tattoo. “Don’t let anyone put you down. Keep positive people in your life!”
Talk about the timing.
While the very-much public back-and-forth between Murray’s camp and the team over a contract extension has seemingly cooled off as the offseason has progressed, there hasn’t been much of an update on the negotiating side.
The wait for news regarding the signal caller won’t last much longer, however, with Arizona’s mandatory minicamp kicking off in Tempe on Wednesday.
A no-show and unexcused absence from Murray, who is expected to be in attendance for minicamp, would create more chatter and raise some concerns that both sides aren’t on the same wavelength in negotiations.
