Kyler Murray chooses the National Football League over MLB

  • Kyler Murray NFL Draft

As a result of his decision, Murray will give up the vast majority of the $4.66 million bonus he was set to receive from the A's after they made him the ninth overall pick in last year's Major League Baseball draft.

"He's really fun to watch on a football field, and he's going to be fun to watch on a baseball field". Picking the National Football League means that Murray will have to give back most of the almost $5 million signing bonus he received from the A's since he will not report to spring training.

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray raises the MVP trophy after defeating the Texas Longhorns in the Big 12 Championship at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Saturday, December 1, 2018.

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

The Oakland Athletics selected Murray with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft.

Boutier Vic Open win ends long French drought on LPGA Tour
Australia's Sarah Kemp shot the day's low round of 65, playing in the day's second group after starting the round tied for 35th. Boutier's victory in the women's section was a groundbreaker, too, for the 25-year-old from Paris of Thai extraction.

At the end of the college football season, he talked about pursuing both sports simultaneously. But at least one team that could really use a quarterback appears poised to take a hard pass on the Heisman trophy victor.

Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders played both football and baseball, but Jackson was a running back and Sanders a cornerback. According to Vacchiano, the Giants prefer to stick to established measurables they have for a prototypical quarterback, and Murray falls short in that regard. "To say somebody could or couldn't, I'm not here to say that".

With the Dolphins surely in the market for a new face under center, Murray is no doubt one of the best available options, especially by way of the 2019 NFL Draft alongside former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

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.
