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.
