Kyler Murray’s excitement soars up having Marvin Harrison Jr. as his Cardinals receiver

The Arizona Cardinals and their fans are buzzing with excitement as they welcome Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. to the desert as the 4th overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft. Among those celebrating the pick is none other than the team’s starting quarterback, Kyler Murray.

Murray shared a video clip in his social media, expressing his joy over the Cardinals’ selection of Harrison. As soon as the team announced their choice, the starting quarterback was seen rising from his seat and breaking into applause in support of the move.

Murray even wasted no time in reaching out to his new receiver. 

“Let’s Rock,” he wrote in a X post tagging Harrison Jr.

Harrison Jr. is equally thrilled to join forces with Murray, as he himself wanted to play for the Cardinals. The Ohio State receiver expressed his eagerness to be a valuable asset to the quarterback. 

“Kyler is a great player, and I’m super excited to play with him. It’s going to be my job to make his job easier,” the receiver said in the news conference. 

After missing the first half of last season due to a knee injury, Murray made a triumphant return from ACL knee surgery in the second half of the season, finishing with a 3-5 record as a starter. 

Now, with the addition of Harrison Jr. and his father’s lofty aspirations, the Cardinals, who finished 4-13 last season, are poised to make significant strides in their rebuilding phase.

Marvin Harrison Jr. receives advice from legendary father on game aspect

Marvin Harrison Jr. isn’t just making waves for his own talent on the football field. He’s also carrying on the legacy of his famous father, Indianapolis Colts legend Marvin Harrison Sr. 

As the younger Harrison prepares to embark on his NFL journey with the Arizona Cardinals, his father recently shared some wisdom from his Hall of Fame career in an interview with ESPN.

“There is one thing I wished he had from my game – you gotta complain for the f—ing ball. He’s gotta complain. I expect him to win every 1-on-1. I expect him to get open every play. My expectations are right where they need to be,” Harrison Sr. said.

For the Cardinals, selecting Harrison Jr. marks a significant move, as he becomes the third receiver they’ve taken in the first round in the last two decades. According to CBS Sports, with the departure of Marquise Brown in free agency, the Arizona team lacked a true WR1.

Harrison Jr. not only has to live up to the trust the Cardinals have placed in him but also fulfill his father’s lofty expectations.
