Kyler Murray replaces signed, autographed jersey lost by young fan

A family friend said the boy, a die-hard Cardinals fan, worked for two years getting autographs from the team.

ARIZONA, USA — Arizona Cardinals Quarterback Kyler Murray has saved the day for a young Cards fan devastated over the loss of a signed jersey two years in the making.

In a Twitter post on Monday morning, former Cardinals cheerleader Kristi Brown asked for Red Sea fans' help locating the signed Murray jersey her friend's son Zak lost at Red and White practice.

In the video, you can see the young in tears over the loss. Brown said the boy, a die-hard Cardinals fan, worked for two years getting autographs from the team.

Hours later, Murray posted a pic of a new jersey with signatures from several players saying, "the jersey is on the way!"

Brown responded, saying Murray had healed Zak's heart and happy tears were flowing like a river. 

Murray has signed a long-term deal with the Arizona Cardinals that will keep him with the franchise through 2028. It could be worth up to $230.5 million.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection and the No.1 overall pick in the 2019 draft has had a productive first three seasons in the desert.

Now he hopes to bring a championship to a franchise that hasn't won one since 1947.
