Colin Cowherd Rips Kyler Murray's Agent After 'Nonsense' Press Release

Colin Cowherd: “I’m on Kyler Murray’s side. He’s a special player. His personality is a little off-putting for me but whatever, Aaron Rodgers drives me nuts. Erik Burkhardt is the agent of Kyler Murray -- big misstep, this is bad. He also represented Johnny Manziel. Kyler Murray is a really talented guy, I think his agent underserved him badly. They released something that looked like a menu. Way too many words, completely transparent, it makes it look like Kyler Murray is completely in it for money. He’s getting paid $5.5 million this year, this is not minimum wage NBA stuff. He’s getting paid $5.5 million, that’s more than 90% of the league. He wants to get paid a year early and I absolutely back him. He’s special, you can’t teach a lot of this stuff, but that playoff game this year, I said it on the air the next day that he tanked. He refused to run. He decided he wasn’t going to run in that playoff game and it was a business decision. He didn’t want to get hurt. I would pay Kyler. The division is really good, he’s special, and getting better, but he bailed on his team in that playoff game by refusing to run. I’m sorry, but his agent Erik Burkhardt is under-serving him with this nonsense. It’s getting mocked all over the internet. Just come out and say it, ‘dude wants to get paid early.’ I’d have more respect for his agent and Kyler if they just came out and said ‘he’s small, he’s been hurt, he wants to get paid, he changed the franchise.’ But the 49ers have gotten to the Super Bowl since he arrived, and the Rams won a Super Bowl since he arrived. It’s not like he’s a first-place quarterback, so he doesn’t have nearly as much leverage as his agent thinks. I’ve gone through four agents for a reason. Just like pilots, dentists, sportscasters, and mayors, not all are great, and I didn’t like that move at all by Erik Burkhardt. Totally transparent, way too long, just cut to the chase, don’t take the fans in Arizona to be idiots. They know what you’re trying to say, so just say it.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd call out Kyler Murray’s agent Erik Burkhardt, after Murray’s representation randomly dropped a rambling press release on Monday that detailed Murray’s desire for a long-term contract extension with the Cardinals this off-season.

Check out the video above as Colin explains why he thought the move was ‘nonsense’, and one that simply got Murray and Burkhart derided and mocked across the league.
