Russell Wilson is the latest franchise quarterback to create some offseason trade buzz from his social media activity just as the Arizona Cardinals appear to be on speaking terms with their star Kyler Murray again.
Wilson, 25/1 to win the regular season MVP award next year, and Murray 25/1 in the same market, have both given off the impression of being far from happy with their situations in the last few months.
Murray made headlines earlier this month when he scrubbed any pictures or reference to the Cardinals from his Instagram account, while reports, citing unnamed inside sources, then emerged that claimed the team were looking for their QB to take steps forward with his maturity and leadership.
The two sides appear to have made peace now though, with Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill telling Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that he spoke to Murray on Thursday night.
"I spoke to him last night. We've had good conversations nonstop" Bidwill said. "I think there was a lot of interpretation around [the social media scrubbing] that's inconsistent with the conversations."
The 24-year-old is entering the final year of his four-year rookie deal in 2022 and, although the Cardinals have an option to extend it by another 12 months, nfl.com state the two sides are now working on a new contract.
Wilson's move on Friday to change his Twitter profile picture to one without any Seattle Seahawks uniform and scrub his bio of any reference to the team could be viewed as a copycat move to get the attention of who knows who.
Last spring, in the wake of reports that multiple teams had sounded out a trade for the eight-time Pro-Bowler, Wilson went public with his wish for more involvement in the Seahawks' personnel decisions.
