2. Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have Kyler Murray as their franchise quarterback under center. In 2022, Arizona gave Murray a five-year, $230.5 million deal that includes $160 million guaranteed.

Head coach Jonathan Gannon did a solid job in his first year as the Cardinals' lead man in 2023. Arizona consistently played well week in and week out. That showcased there is good coaching going on over in Glendale that gets the most effort out of their players.

Zach Wilson is from Utah and went to school out there. He is used to being on the West Coast and a trade to Arizona would certainly help him.

Sitting behind Murray allows Wilson to just sit and develop as a player. His former teammate RB Michael Carter is also now in Arizona, as they both came into the league in 2021 when they were drafted by the Jets.

Arizona owns a flurry of late-round picks, including two fifth-rounders, one sixth-rounder, and two seven-rounders. They can easily send one over to New York in exchange for Wilson.
