ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that his sources tell him that Murray is described as self-centered, immature and finger pointer.
“Murray is frustrated with [the] franchise and was embarrassed by [the] playoff loss to Rams and thinks he’s been framed as the scapegoat,” Mortensen reports.
Last week, Murray scrubbed his Instagram account of all Cardinals references and is no longer following the Cardinals on Twitter or Instagram. Plus, there are no mentions of him and the Cardinals in his social media profiles.
The team took notes and scrubbed their Instagram account down to just two photos — both of Murray. While the team’s Instagram is back to its usual appearance at the time of publication, Murray’s Instagram still looks the same with just two photos and no Cardinals’ references.
It’s wasn’t clear why Murray went nuclear on the Cardinals with the social media scrub, but it seems like we may have some more clarity with the reports of his frustration with the franchise.
Mortensen reports the team expects things to calm down and emphasized Murray is their QB.
“Select veterans hope to reach Murray on how he [can] handle adversity better,” Mortensen reports. “Coach Kliff Kingsbury also is self-scouting where he can provide better alternatives for QB.”
