Kyler Murray is picking football over baseball

Murray made no mention of the A's or baseball in his statement.

Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray says he will pursue a career in the National Football League over playing baseball for the Oakland Athletics.

The Miami Dolphins are more than likely in the market for a new quarterback while former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray could become the next star in South Florida. I was raised to play QB, and I very much look forward to dedicating 100% of myself to being the best QB possible and winning National Football League championships. He will reportedly repay $1.29m (£1m) of the $1.5m (£1.17m) he received previous year and forfeit the remaining $3.16m (£2.46m). "But he athletically is so gifted and can transition between the two".

After transferring to Oklahoma from Texas A&M, Murray was the Sooners' backup quarterback behind Heisman victor and future No. 1 NFL pick Baker Mayfield for the 2017 football season.

The reigning Heisman Trophy victor posted a statement on his Twitter account Monday, four days before he was scheduled to report to spring training with the Oakland Athletics. "He'll have fun this fall, but he's going to have a really long and very productive baseball career, and we're looking forward to seeing it". The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback is choosing football.

Murray is a rare type of playmaker and I wrote an entire column on how he is one of the players uniquely qualified to help the Broncos potentially beat Patrick Mahomes in the AFC West going forward.

The A's remained optimistic as the offseason wore on, and manager Bob Melvin expected him to be at spring training. Even if a team wants to trade up for a QB, they may not need to pay the freight needed to get to No. 1, instead targeting a lower pick in the top 5. Plus, Oakland has enough depth in the outfield to withstand Murray's departure.

Murray has the potential to be the first athlete ever chosen in the first round of the MLB Draft and the NFL Draft in the same 12-month span. Murray is projected to be a first-round or second-round pick in the NFL Draft this spring. He can make every throw, and he does it with timing, touch and poise.
