Ahead of training camp, the Arizona Cardinals got a big to-do item off the list in signing quarterback Kyler Murray to a contract extension that keeps the signal caller in the desert through 2028.

This past Friday, Murray and general manager Steve Keim spoke for the first time since agreeing on the new deal.

Arizona Sports’ Cardinals reporter Tyler Drake and 98.7 FM’s Erik Ruby dive into the important tidbits of the press conference and what the new contract means for both sides moving forward.

Where does Murray and Arizona go from here in terms of continued NFL progression? And where do the two sides sit after a tumultuous offseason?

Drake and Ruby then turn their attention to training camp, where there are no shortage of questions surrounding the franchise.

On top of pinpointing the contenders at pass rusher opposite Markus Golden, the duo also dives into the inside linebacker and running back rooms.

Will Isaiah Simmons continue to get a good amount of work with the safeties or does he hunker down at ILB alongside Zaven Collins?

And who will take over No. 2 running back duties with Chase Edmonds now a Miami Dolphin? Eno Benjamin has gotten high praise this offseason from head coach Kliff Kingsbury, but can he beat out newcomer Darrel Williams on the depth chart?
