The Arizona Cardinals have made Kyler Murray the NFL’s second highest-paid player by giving him a five-year contract worth a reported $230.5 million. After playing the first three seasons of his career on a rookie deal, Murray’s net worth should skyrocket over the next few years.

When the Cardinals selected Murray first overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, they signed the quarterback to a four-year, $35.1 million contract. Murray’s new extension runs through the 2028 season and is being added on to the end of his rookie deal.

Murray has earned a little more than $30 million in his first three NFL seasons.

Celebrity Net Worth estimates Murray’s net worth to be $40 million, though it’s unknown how accurate that figure might be. Murray’s new contract will pay him an average of $46.1 million per year over five seasons.

The extension includes $160 million guaranteed. Murray will earn $106.15 million in the first three years, NFL Network reports.

Murray chose to play professional football over baseball after winning the Heisman Trophy at Oklahoma. The Oakland Athletics selected Murray with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft. The A’s gave Murray a $4.66 million signing bonus, which he repaid to Oakland when he signed with the Cardinals as a rookie.

Murray reportedly turned down more than $18 million in guaranteed money from the A's.

Had Murray become one of the best players in baseball, he could’ve potentially made even more money during than he will in the NFL. Murray’s new extension comes less than a week after the Washington Nationals offered outfielder Juan Soto a $440 million contract.

Tom Brady owns the record for NFL players with more than $300 million in career earnings. If Murray remains healthy and productive through the entirety of his new contract, he could easily surpass that number later in his career.
