Arizona Cardinals star Kyler Murray dismissed concerns about his work ethic, a topic of discussion when a notable clause in his five-year, $230.5 million contract was revealed.
“There’s multiple different ways to watch film. Of course we all watch film,” he told reporters Thursday. “That doesn’t need to be questioned. I refuse to let my work ethic and my preparation be in question. I’ve put in an incomprehensible amount of time in what I do.”
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Murray’s deal requires him to complete four hours of “independent study” in weeks when the Cardinals have a game scheduled.

Contracts are about give-and-take. One example from <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AZCardinals?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#AZCardinals</a> QB Kyler Murray’s $230.5M contract: There is an addendum that requires 4 hours of “independent study” per game week. It was important to the team making a commitment at that level, thus it was important to Murray. <a href=”https://t.co/VqrkvoBQLJ”>pic.twitter.com/VqrkvoBQLJ</a>
