After the thumping win over the Tennessee Titans, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray spoke to the press on his team’s performance and Chandler Jones. He expressed his admiration for the linebacker and highlighted Jones’ ability to rush the passers and maintain pressure. But as all best friends do, you can’t compliment your friend without having a bit of fun.

Speaking to the press, Murray said, “He’s a really unorthodox guy. He takes his shirt off and he doesn’t look too good. He makes plays all of a sudden, gets after the quarterback.

“He’s an expert at rushing the passer. I’m glad he’s on my team.”

Moments after the conference, the video clip of Murray’s statement on Chandler Jones’ body went viral. Social media was buzzing with everyone having their fair share of fun.

Soon after, Chandler Jones also decided to the party when he responded to Murray’s statement on Twitter with equal sass. He chose to make fun of Kyler Murray’s new haircut and tweeted, Somebody tell baby yoda the truth about his new hairdo 🥴”
