The Arizona Cardinals have high expectations for their 2021 season.
One reason as to why is they see veteran additions will give young Pro Bowl quarterback Kyler Murray even more to work with.
One of those new additions is veteran A.J. Green.
Green is coming off a third disappointing season in a row, where he just never seemed to get on the same page as rookie Joe Burrow.
Well, he trades in a young, inexperienced quarterback for an even younger, however much more experienced quarterback.
Kyler Murray is eight months younger than Burrow, but has played in 22 more games and thrown 700 more passes than the Bengals signal caller.
Murray gives Green a youthful quarterback with experience and a penchant for throwing the ball deep to big receivers.
That connection was already on display in early camp.

I know it’s just 7 on 7, but AJ Green looks incredible out there at @AZCardinals practice.

K1 to A.J. Green.

There seems to be a good connection, let’s hope it manifest in the regular season and Green is able to stay healthy.
