Terry Bradshaw says Sean Payton didn’t want to work with Kyler Murray

The Arizona Cardinals considered Sean Payton to be their next head coach, replacing Kliff Kingsbury. Ultimately, Payton was hired by the Denver Broncos.

He spent hours with the Cardinals in his interview but a deal did not happen.

Payton was previously working for FOX Sports as a studio analyst and worked with Terry Bradshaw.

Bradshaw had some interesting words about Payton and where he landed.

Vic Lombardi spoke with Bradshaw and Payton’s former coworker was upset that Payton left to take a coaching job.

Bradshaw suggested that Payton didn’t like any of the scenarios.

The Carolina Panthers wasn’t an ideal coaching situation because it was in the NFC South where he coached the New Orleans Saints for 15 years.

The Houston Texans weren’t a great situation because they don’t have a quarterback.

The Cardinals?

“He didn’t want to work with that quarterback,” Bradshaw said, referring to Kyler Murray.

Then again, Bradshaw also thought that Payton wouldn’t want to work with Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson.

Murray has a reputation for being hard to coach, not being good about studying and he is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in early December.

It isn’t the first time we have heard this possibility. A report out of the Senior Bowl said that coaching candidates were leery of the Cardinals’ vacancy because of Murray and his contract.

The Cardinals are expected to name their head coach next week.
