Toucher & Rich

Weekdays 6am-10am


The Stack on Toucher & Rich is the time during the show where we get to the stuff that we couldn’t get to. On Today’s edition:


Kyler Murray’s ‘study hall’ clause is a bizarre move by the Cardinals, one that will now define both parties

“A time increment that’s incredibly been slotted into Murray’s new deal, mandating that the star quarterback spend at least four hours per week in “Independent Study” during the regular season and playoffs. During that time, he must review “material provided to him by the Club in order to prepare for the Club’s next upcoming game.”


This is just a wordy way of saying Kyler Murray is now contractually obligated to do his homework. Which, as franchise quarterback deals go, is so unorthodox that not a single executive or coach reached by Yahoo Sports on Monday could recall ever even hearing of that kind of language inserted into such a high-profile deal, let alone having mandated something similar in their own negotiations.” – Charles Robinson, NFL Columnist Yahoo!

Report: Jimmy Garoppolo passes physical, wiping out $7.5 million injury guarantee

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo passed his physical Tuesday and won’t be placed on the active/physically unable to perform list, which wipes out Garoppolo’s $7.5 million injury guarantee, leaving no guaranteed money on his contract unless he’s on the roster Week 1.

Kyle Shanahan says 49ers are moving ahead with Trey Lance, doesn’t expect Jimmy Garoppolo at camp

“Had an awesome run with Jimmy. It was great. But when you bring in a salary cap, things like that, there’s just so many tough decisions you have to make and we made that a year ago,” Shanahan said. “This is something that we did last year knowing where we wanted to go with this franchise and how you balance out a salary cap, how you balance out a roster.” – Kyle Shanahan

Jerry Jones apologizes for using derogatory term about little people

“Earlier today I made a reference which I understand may have been viewed as offensive. I apologize,” Jones said on Tuesday evening.
