The deal will force Murray to study game video on his own for at least four hours per game week. Teams can see if players are studying and watching movies on their tablets. Murray could potentially be in default on his guaranteed money if he doesn’t meet the study requirements.

Murray officially signed the contract early Monday. According to multiple reports, the deal is worth $230.5 million with $160 million guaranteed.
