Do the Steelers Actually have a Shot at Landing QB1 Kyler Murray? OddsChecker Says ‘Yes’

Even with the recent signing of Mitch Trubisky, do the Pittsburgh Steelers have a legit shot at landing the 2x Pro Bowler, Kyler Murray? Lines have been drawn in the sand, and it feels like we’re moving ever closer to a Murray trade. As a result, oddsmakers have rushed to update their odds on where he could play next. The shocking favorite is the Dallas Cowboys. Let’s break it down.

That’s right, oddsmakers give the Cowboys +800 odds, or an implied 11.1% chance to land Murray. The next favorite is the Atlanta Falcons at +1000, or an implied 9.1% chance. The odds take a nose dive after that.

Steelers’ odds

Pittsburgh is given +1600 odds, or an implied 5.9% chance to make a deal. The Philadelphia Eagles are +2200, or an implied 4.3% chance to choose Murray over Jalen Hurts. Rounding out the group is the now draft pick flushed Houston Texans who are given +3000 odds, or an implied 3.2% to add Murray to the fold.

All of that said, oddsmakers still don’t believe a trade will come to pass. The Arizona Cardinals are given -500 odds, or an implied 83.3% chance to retain Murray. Of course, oddsmakers also didn’t believe the Seattle Seahawks would trade Russell Wilson or the Texans would trade Deshaun Watson… and look what happened there.

Quote from OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman,

“One of these teams is not like the others. The Cowboys trade for a QB? Well, after Dak Prescott failed to win a playoff game last year, oddsmakers believe there’s a chance the team chooses to move on. Of course, it certainly helps that Murray is a Texas native. That said, there’s a reason oddsmakers are giving The Field +1000 odds right now, nobody has any clue what a Kyler Murray trade market could eventually look like. Other than the fact oddsmakers believe the Cowboys are going to be in the thick of it.”

Murray was drafted by the Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft as the first overall selection. He was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year that season, following his Heisman Trophy season in 2018 as a member of the Oklahoma Sooners. He was previously at Texas A&M before transferring in 2015.

With Murray’s now questionable future in Arizona up in the air, could he become the latest of these “big name” quarterbacks to find a home elsewhere in the league prior to the 2022 regular season? Don’t be surprised if the answer ends up being ‘yes.’

    Last thing Pittsburgh need is another Head Case special not a quarterback

    The Steelers have no need at all for Kyler Murray – too short – will never get to the promised land. Will win a few games – never the bug one.

    Pittsburg would be better off keeping all the draft capital it would take and coaching up Trubiski . He’s never really had much coaching and there certainly is talent there

    There is no way the Steelers even entertain this swap. Arizona will want the sun, moon and stars and we value draft picks toooo much to give them away for a guy that thinks he should get $.5B like Patrick.

    Just stop.
    We don’t need a 5 foot tall diva at QB.

    I wish all the “experts” would leave the Steelers name out of this foolishness. We were never seriously looking at Watson who is eons better than Murray so why would we give up just as much if not more for a QB who is overrated and just not that good.

    He’s a good QB but I think we need to get draft picks. Need a safety and wide receivers along with OT’s. If we can get Honey badger then we can draft a ILB in draft go get some receivers and OL
