Cardinals Remove \'Independent Study\' Clause From Kyler Murray\'s Deal 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 29, 2022 1:06 pm

The Arizona Cardinals have removed the independent study addendum from Kyler Murray\'s new contract after it received significant backlash.

\"After seeing the distraction it created, we removed the addendum from the contract,\" the Cardinals said in a statement. \"It was clearly perceived in ways that were never intended. Our confidence in Kyler Murray is as high as it\'s ever been and nothing demonstrates our belief in his ability to lead this team more than the commitment reflected in this contract.\"

The addendum in Murray\'s contract extension became public on Monday. The clause required the quarterback to study game material for four hours per week on his own to receive \"credit.\"

Murray couldn\'t study while he was distracted by the TV, internet or video games, the addendum said.

They don't think he's disciplined enough to do the work. That's all that says. They'd prefer to believe it when they see it.

Never should have came from the contract to begin with if they thought he couldn't study such an indictment on his immaturity once his kid loses his natural ability to run it won't be good for him or the Cardinals to have his contract it's not good now to have the contract either because he's not a winner he'll be a consistent third place team in division

Why was it in the contract in the first place, if film study was not an issue?

A contract is a set of expectations. Not sure why this would be a problem. Did it hurt the kids feelings?
