Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray took to Twitter on Thursday to defend himself against comments from a national radio host.
Earlier in the day, Fox Sports Radio’s Colin Cowherd argued that building a culture around the QB is difficult.
Murray tweeted “Run all the stories you wanna run with…but questioning my work ethic we’re not going. Stop messing with me Colin. I still rock with you but go.”
Murray was obviously unhappy with Cowherd’s comments, in which he compared Murray to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
“Kyler (Murray) and Aaron (Rodgers) put their talent first and their demeanor second,” Cowherd said. “And it’s the opposite… of what wins at the highest level.”
He added: “Kyler Murray is Aaron Rodgers. Aloof, trust issues and kind of do their own thing… They rely on their talent.
Murray’s response to Cowherd’s comments prompted the sports personality to “clarify” the situation on his show, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, on Friday, saying Murray “misinterpreted” his comments.
“I didn’t question his work ethic,” Cowherd said. “I had a five-minute rant yesterday. I think he’s misinterpreting it a bit. I’m not questioning his work ethic. So let me clear that up. I’ve been thinking about it all l afternoon. How can I create clarity in this situation in Arizona for Kyler Murray, his agent and the people watching? When a star leans into a culture, that’s perfect. Coaches create the culture and GMs create culture. The two biggest players in my life who have leaned into culture are Tim Duncan and Tom Brady.”
Cowherd’s comments weren’t the only comments Murray made on social media Thursday.

Murray responded to a clip from a podcast where former Cardinals player Patrick Peterson speculated on the quarterback playing elsewhere with “I want to win the Super Bowl with the Cardinals, AZ is home.”
The quarterback also responded to a tweet about Cardinals general manager Steve Keim, saying there was “no chance” Arizona would trade Murray.
Speculation has surrounded Murray, who is seeking a new contract, and the Cardinals throughout the offseason.
Perhaps Murray’s responses on social media are a sign that a resolution might be in sight?
