Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray chooses National Football League path over MLB

While Murray will be participating in both the NFL Combine and NFL Draft despite already being selected by the Oakland Athletics in the 2018 MLB Draft, it remains to be seen as to where exactly the reigning Heisman Trophy victor will come off the board come late April.

That will not happen now, with the next crucial step in Murray's National Football League push coming at the NFL's scouting combine at the end of the month. I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming workouts and interviews. He then played quarterback for Oklahoma last fall and posted the second-best passing efficiency rating in FBS history. "I eagerly await the opportunity to continue to prove to National Football League decision-makes that I am the franchise QB in this draft". With the help of super agent Scott Boras, Murray agreed to a lucrative contract that would allow him to play the 2018 football season at OU before reporting to spring training in 2019.

Still Forst said, "We'll focus on what we need to do to make sure that if he comes back to baseball at some point, he comes back with the A's".

According to ESPN, Murray will have to return $1.29m of his $1.5m signing bonus and will not receive the remaining $3.16m.

Passan says the A's will put Murray on the restricted list and retain his rights, but they will not get another draft pick.

Not even Denver Broncos general manager John Elway - the first overall pick in the 1983 NFL Draft and 52nd overall (second round) pick of the 1981 MLB Draft - can claim that.

Earlier on Monday, A's president Billy Beane said the situation around Murray was still uncertain.

In today's National Football League it is much harder to hurt a quarterback, even a mobile running quarterback.

Murray showed off his skills taking batting practice at the Coliseum in an A's uniform back in June, greeted by "WELCOME TO OAKLAND" on the big scoreboard with his photo. Much like Bake last year, someone is about to pick up a difference maker and franchise QB in this years draft. "Something like that is something that is part of our private discussions".
