Kyler Murray Has Officially Made A Decision On The NFL

Kyler Murray

Beane was asked by ESPN's Pedro Gomez, just before Murray's announcement, if the A's would have handled the draft differently knowing what they know now - that Murray would win the Heisman Trophy and be a projected first-round National Football League draft pick.

The Oakland Athletics selected Murray with the ninth pick of the 2018 MLB draft after posting a.296 batting average and 10 home runs as a centerfielder for Oklahoma's baseball team previous year.

Relating to the Patriots, they will always be interested in quarterbacks as long as Tom Brady is still on the roster since they need to find an eventual replacement.

NFL Research tweeted that Murray could be the first person to be taken in the first round of both the Major League Baseball and NFL drafts.

Oakland drafted Murray with the ninth overall pick last June.

According to BBC, EFL laws frown at anyone with dual roles with two clubs at the same time without the prior consent of the board.

Kyler Murray #1 of the Oklahoma Sooners reacts in the fourth quarter during the College Football Playoff Semifinal against the Alabama Crimson Tide at the Capital One Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium on December 29, 2018 in Miami, Florida. "Football has been my love and my passion my entire life".

The NFL Combine is set to begin on February 26 with the 2019 NFL Draft scheduled for April 25 in Nashville. He added 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground.

Before Murray announced his decision Billy Beane, Oakland's executive vice president of baseball operations, acknowledged his team might lose the player. "The situation is fluid right now [based] on a historic college football season that the young man had".

Jeff Passan, a writer for ESPN, tweeted that Murray will have to return $1.29 million of his signing bonus money that he has already received, and he forfeits the remaining $3.16 million.

"Obviously the fact that he would want to play quarterback, if he chooses the football route, is a little different than Deion or Bo or some of those guys", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in November.
