WR CeeDee Lamb is onboard to reunite with QB Kyler Murray.

Lamb took questions part of media availability at NFL Scouting Combine, asked of impressions of the  Cardinals staff, adding it would be an ‘honor' to have Murray as a teammate.

“ [If] we pick CeeDee, that would be great. We have a very comfortable relationship. I've played with him, I've been with him for years, so yeah, I don't think that would be a bad pick at all, ” Murray told Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman, via AZCentral.com.
