“Nothing has changed regarding our opinion and high regard for Kyler Murray. We, as a team, and Kyler, individually, have improved each year he’s been in the league. We are excited to continue that improvement in 2022 and are excited that Kyler Murray is the quarterback leading us,” the team said in a statement obtained by Pro Football Talk.

In the 34-11 playoff loss to the Rams, Murray completed 55.9% of his passes for 137 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. The star quarterback was without top wideout DeAndre Hopkins, who remained sidelined after Week 14.

After three seasons in the NFL, Murray could get a contract extension this offseason. He has one year left on his rookie deal, but the team can exercise a fifth-year option.
