Murray 'fully committing' to being an NFL QB

RUMOR: Cardinals Have Already Informed Kyler Murray They'll Take Him #1 Overall

Moreover, while Murray the football player would have the opportunity to increase his earnings significantly after three years in the NFL, Murray the baseball player would enter a system that doesn't reward the most productive years of a player's life.

Kyler Murray might not be an A's prospect for much longer.

"I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming National Football League workouts and interviews", added Murray.

The A's, however, retain Murray's Major League Baseball rights, and there are scenarios in which he could reverse himself and seek to play for Oakland.

He was due to report to spring training with the Athletics on Friday, with club officials still unsure of Murray's intentions before his statement on Monday. Murray was the Heisman Trophy award victor and helped the Sooners make the College Football Playoff semifinals.

How Solskjaer has transformed Man Utd's fortunes
Solskjaer said he had met United owner Avram Glazer after the game, but he wouldn't be drawn on whether they would have any further meetings to discuss his future at the club. "He came to the dressing room".

"Things have certainly changed since the draft", Billy Beane, Oakland's executive vice president of baseball operations, said Monday, via the Associated Press.

Murray's sparkling athleticism and all-around skillset led the Oakland Athletics to select him No. 9 overall in the 2018 MLB Draft.

But there is little question Murray has a chance to create a little havoc on draft's Thursday night, and where he might land will be one of the draft's central storylines over the next few months. "The situation is fluid right now [based] on a historic college football season that the young man had". One can imagine that all of those factors were weighed heavily by Murray when making the decision to ultimately spurn the A's in pursuit of football. He will reportedly repay $1.29m (£1m) of the $1.5m (£1.17m) he received a year ago and forfeit the remaining $3.16m (£2.46m). The 21-year-old could be a first-round pick in the NFL draft in April, which would make him the first athlete selected in the first round of the MLB and NFL drafts, according to the NFL's research department.

The Texan recorded 4,361 passing yards and 1,001 rushing yards with 54 touchdowns in 14 games in his final season with the Oklahoma Sooners past year. He'll also forfeit the remaining $3.16MM that would have been paid to him on March 1.
