The Arizona Cardinals have extended the contracts of Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury and General Manager Steve Keim through the 2027 season. These two were instrumental in the Cardinals’ first return to the NFL Playoffs since 2015. Arizona made the 2022 NFL Playoffs but lost in the Wildcard Round to their divisional rival the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams went on to win Super Bowl LVI this year. Another major decision about an extension looms for the Arizona Cardinals now that these two are signed.

There has been some drama surrounding the franchise this offseason and it has everything to do with the upcoming decision around quarterback Kyler Murray’s contract. He wants a long-term extension and the Cardinals have not made their motives clear there as of right now. That drama is sure to continue well into the offseason or until an extension is reached by both sides.
