Report: Kyler Murray “No Longer Plans” To Meet With Washington Redskins

Bleacher Report

Former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, who is a candidate to become the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft, reportedly will no longer make a scheduled visit with the Washington Redskins.

Steve Wyche of NFL Network reported the news on Tuesday.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Monday that the Arizona Cardinals, who will make the draft's first selection barring a trade, are "all in" on the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.

Grant Gordon of speculated as to what the cancellation may mean.

"This is likely a sign that Murray or his representation is confident the reigning Heisman Trophy winner out of Oklahoma will have been drafted by the time Washington picks at No. 15 in the first round," Gordon wrote.

"Murray has long been predicted to be the No. 1 overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals due to how well he would presumably fit in to the offense of first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury. Cardinals general manager Steve Keim has stated the team hasn't made a decision yet, though."

Even if the Cardinals don't take Murray, the Skins would need to provide a ton of assets just to put themselves in position to leap over some teams and draft the signal-caller.
