Since the discovery of the independent study time clause in his $230 million extension with the Cardinals, Kyler Murray has emerged among the most disrespected and underappreciated quarterbacks in the NFL.

Interestingly, Arizona’s star players, including Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton, have also frequently faced undue criticism; however, Kyler Murray appears to bear the brunt of this negative sentiment.

And this unwarranted animosity came to the forefront when a photo circulated showing Murray wearing a Catapult sports bra.

Meanwhile, this very same data-tracking sports bra is also worn by some of the world’s most renowned athletes.

Icons spanning from David Beckham to Joe Burrow have been spotted embracing this emerging trend.

From the company’s website explaining what the vest has to offer:

” Yes, football players wear vests during training and games to track and measure their performance on the field. They are wearing a GPS vest that just happens to look like a sports bra. The vest is designed to hold a pod between the shoulder blades that contains a 10Hz GPS, an accelerometer and a magnetometer.”

But, of course, when Kyler Murray opts not to wear an undershirt beneath the vest in the scorching 110-degree temperatures of Phoenix, the internet seizes the opportunity to capitalize on these images.

Once again demonstrating that much of the criticism directed at Murray stems from sheer boredom.
