Well, you know how the saying goes. Can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube.

The Arizona Cardinals attempted to do that on Thursday by removing the independent study clause in Kyler Murray’s new five-year, $230.5 million contract extension. The news came three days after the organization, its quarterback and the quarterback’s agent were heavily criticized for the clause that required Murray to watch at least four hours of game prep.

The language included that Murray had to have his eyes on the material and couldn’t be watching television or playing video games during it.

A part of the Cardinals’ statement reads “it was clearly perceived in ways that were never intended.” Which, is true, but also speaks on the lack of awareness that 1) something like this would likely get out and 2) make everyone involved look poorly when it does.

It did!

That sentiment persisted after the news, as Twitter continued getting jokes in at their respective expenses.
