Kyler Murray is about to Create an NFL-MLB Bidding War

Kyler Murray is about to Create an NFL-MLB Bidding War

The Oakland Athletics' push to keep Kyler Murray's baseball career alive has included people from Major League Baseball.

Murray, agent Scott Boras and A's reps all met together in Dallas on Sunday to explore a potential deal, according to Slusser.

The Oakland Athletics can sign Kyler Murray to a major league deal and offer him significant guaranteed money to choose baseball over football without running afoul of Major League Baseball rules, league sources told ESPN, the latest twist in a sport-vs. -sport battle for the Heisman Trophy victor that's expected to be resolved in the coming days.

The 2019 National Football League draft declaration deadline is Monday. The A's are now expecting to lose Murray to the National Football League, a awful blow they're trying to avoid.

Perhaps this news will actually hurt Murray's draft stock.

According to USA TODAY Sports, A's brass led by team president Billy Beane did meet with Murray to make their pitch on Sunday.

Areas further to the south will get the most snow, with parts of South Jersey and northern DE seeing as much as 3-5 inches. We do not expect any widespread issues, but some slick spots are still possible especially early Monday morning.

The Athletics drafted Murray ninth overall last summer and gave him a $4.66 million bonus, but allowed him to play football at Oklahoma.

If Murray declares for the NFL draft in 2019 or 2020 and is a first-round pick he would be the first player to be a first-round pick in both the NFL and MLB drafts.

Each year, Major League Baseball notifies teams of their draft bonus pools and worldwide spending allotment. Few people anticipated a Heisman-winning season, however, and that's complicated matters.

MLB rules prohibit players from signing major league contracts, which place players on the 40-man roster, out of the draft.

Last week, the Athletics were dealt a huge blow when they found out that Kyler Murray would likely forego playing baseball for them and enter his name into the NFL Draft instead.
