Report: Kyler Murray no longer planning to visit with Redskins
Does Kyler Murray know something that we don’t?
NFL Media’s Steve Wyche reported on Tuesday that Murray is no longer planning to visit with the Washington Redskins this week.
Was just told by someone with knowledge of the scheduled visit that Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray no longer plans to meet with the Washington Redskins this week.

Why would the visit no longer be happening? Players often try to meet with as many teams as possible teams because they are seeking jobs. Sometimes though a player in high demand will cancel visits with teams they don’t feel have a realistic shot of getting them, which could be the case here.
This news will make the Arizona Cardinals’ recent proclamation sound even more strange considering all signs point to them taking Murray No. 1 overall.
Washington already has Case Keenum and Colt McCoy at quarterback, in addition to Alex Smith, who is recovering from a broken leg. On top of that, they have shown interest in trading for Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen.
