The Arizona Cardinals have backed down after they a bizarre “independent study” clause in Kyler Murray’s new contract.

Earlier this week, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that the Cardinals inserted a clause in Murray’s contract in which the QB agreed to study for four hours a week while away from the team’s facilities.

On Thursday, a pissed-off Murray held a surprise press conference because he felt people were being “disrespectful” about his study habits.

Not long after Murray’s surprise press conference it was revealed that the Cardinals had removed the ‘independent study” clause from his contract.
