Numbers Game

After winning the Heisman Trophy, University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray re-thought his commitment to professional baseball, including his selection by the Oakland A's. Instead, he decided to go the professional football route, declaring for the NFL draft and being selected as the #1 pick by the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.

There is now much discussion about what size of contract Murray may be offered by Arizona, with all kinds of numbers thrown about. Were I Mr. Murray,  one of the major numbers I would want on the table during negotiations is 3.2.

Because that's how many times Cardinals quarterbacks were sacked per game in the 2018 season, and if they hold to that mark this year then Mr. Murray will need to build his aspirin and Ben-Gay use into his financial picture.
