Kyler Murray Addresses Independent Study Contract Clause

We eliminated the addendum from the contract after seeing the disruption it caused.

The Cardinals gave Kyler Murray an independent study provision in his contract,

making him the second-highest-paid quarterback in the NFL

The odd addition requires the fourth-year quarterback to examine at least four hours of independent film each week during the season.

The five-year, $230.5MM contract itself hasn't received as much attention as this odd stipulation, which is understandable.

Murray has previously acknowledged in statements to the New York Times that he is unlikely to be a quarterback who studies movies to the highest level.

The two-time Pro Bowler declined to say if he was mad about this film-study component of his contract
