  • Kyler Murray NFL Draft

"Moving forward, I am firmly and fully committing my life to becoming an National Football League quarterback". The Oakland A's were willing to throw a few million his way, but pro football is just a better option if you can play quarterback.

Over the last few weeks, Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray has had a huge decision to make: play football or stick to baseball?

Oakland, which started spring training workouts Monday, had a locker with a No. 73 jersey waiting for him.

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", Murray said in Monday's statement.

Before Murray announced his decision Billy Beane, Oakland's executive vice president of baseball operations, acknowledged his team might lose the player.

At the end of the college football season, he talked about pursuing both sports simultaneously.

Although NFL talent evaluators gravitate toward taller quarterbacks, the success of stars such as Russell Wilson (at 5-11) and Baker Mayfield (generously listed at 6-1) have caused some NFL scouts to reconsider that preference.

It is a devastating blow for the A's, who drafted Murray as an outfielder with the ninth pick of the 2018 Major League Baseball draft. "Something like that is something that is part of our private discussions".

In October, first-year Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury suggested as Texas Tech's head coach that he would take Murray first overall in the upcoming draft.

According to ESPN, Murray will have to return $1.29m of his $1.5m signing bonus and will not receive the remaining $3.16m. If he's selected anywhere in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, he can expect to earn more than twice what he'd have earned with the Athletics' signing bonus; last year's No. 32 overall pick, Lamar Jackson, signed for almost $9.5MM and will earn the entirety of that sum.

Technically, the Athletics will be able to retain the rights to Murray, in the event that he ever has a change of heart or is forced to alter his career path.
