Damian Woody is blasting the Arizona Cardinals organization for what they did to their quarterback, but he is also ripping into Kyler Murray as well.
When Kyler Murray signed his massive contract extension with the Arizona Cardinals, it would soon be revealed that it included a clause that would have required Murray to complete four hours of “independent study” during every game week.
“Player shall not receive any credit for Independent Study with respect to any time periods during which any material is displayed or played on an iPad or electronic device if (a) Player is not personally studying or watching the material while it is being displayed or played or (b) Player is engaged in any other activity that may distract his attention (for example, watching television, playing video games or browsing the internet) while such material is being displayed or played.”
It was pretty embarrassing for that information to not only be in there but to get out to the general public.
During Friday’s episode of Get Up, the ESPN NFL analyst blasted the team for this entire disaster and ripped into Murray for not reading the contract to see that it said that in the first place.
“What the hell is the Arizona Cardinals doing? First of all, Kyler Murray. You didn’t have to sign the contract…” he said. “If you ‘studied’ the contract, you would have seen that addendum.
“… And to the Arizona Cardinals — You’ve told everyone what you think about your quarterback. You’ve told everyone that you don’t think your quarterback is a good student of the game… This whole thing is just a disaster.”
After practice on Thursday, Murray held an unscheduled press conference and said it was “disrespectful” and a “joke” that people would question his work ethic.
Hours later, it was announced that the clause was taken out of the contract.
What a massive screwup.
