“I am starting to wonder about the leadership gene in Kyler Murray and bad body language when things don’t go right” — Skip Bayless

Pundits and fans are skeptical about this decision and ponder if the young QB deserves so much money. Many many people took to Twitter to share their concerns about the new contract extension. Kyler has often shown a lack of discipline when it comes to training or working within a team, he has not yet shown any leadership qualities that justify his price tag, and though he is exceptional on the field he still needs to learn to work with a team and be disciplined.

The new contract also states a surprising new clause regarding homework. Every week Murray has to watch 4 hours of work films to improve his game without any distractions, failure in doing so will result in him losing over $100 million. Teams often add different clauses on a contract like losing some amount of weight or not missing practice but this is the first time such a clause is seen on a massive contract.

With his new contract, Murray has changed the NFL quarterback market. Lamar Jackson who’s also looking for an extension believes that he should be paid more than Kyler. this snowball effect of the high pay scale will endanger the authenticity of the game and commercialize the whole sport to the point where it won’t feel the same.
