OKLAHOMA CITY -

Former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray is expected to become an even richer man, according to a report.

ESPN reporter Adam Schefter said Murray and the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to a five-year contract extension worth $230.5 million.

Out of the $230.5 million deal, $160 million will be guaranteed.

Murray, who just finished his third season with the Cardinals, helped his team qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2015.

Arizona lost to the Los Angeles Rams, the eventual Super Bowl Champions, in the Wild Card round.

Last season, Murray was one of two starting quarterbacks with at least 3,500 passing yards and a completion percentage of 69 percent or better. Cincinnati's Joe Burrow, who went on to lose to the Rams in February's Super Bowl, was the other (4,611 passing yards; 70.4 completion percentage).
