Athletics' Kyler Murray: 'Fully committing' to football
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray is "firmly and fully committing [his] life and time to becoming an NFL quarterback," the two-sport athlete announced on his personal Twitter account Monday.

This appeared to be the direction Murray had been heading in all winter after declaring for the NFL draft and accepting an invitation to the NFL combine. Reports in previous months left open the possibility that Murray would nevertheless try to keep a window open to play both sports, but his announcement that he is "dedicating 100% of [himself] to being the best QB possible" doesn't seem to leave room for a second career. The decision is a blow to the Athletics, who picked Murray ninth overall in the 2018 draft.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Accepts invite to NFL combine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will attend the NFL combine beginning Feb. 26, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The 2018 first-round draft pick declared for the NFL draft in mid-January, though that decision was simply procedural. This development makes it seem as if Murray is leaning more toward becoming a professional football player rather than continuing as a professional baseball player. No word has come forth as to whether Murray will also attend spring training when that starts Feb. 15, and no concrete decision has been made regarding his athletic future. Regardless, the Oklahoma product's future in baseball is looking increasingly bleak as he progresses further in the NFL draft process.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Declares for 2019 NFL Draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray declared for the 2019 NFL Draft on Monday, according to his personal Twitter account.

As expected, Murray has decided to enter his name into the NFL draft pool prior to Monday's deadline. This move is simply procedural, as Murray can still choose to fulfill his commitment to the A's if he wishes. While reports suggest the Heisman winner is leaning toward going pro in football rather than baseball, the A's are attempting to sway his decision by extending him a major-league deal. Murray's decision of whether to join the Athletics at spring training (Feb. 15) or to participate in the NFL combine (Feb. 26) should offer a better indication of his intentions moving forward. Should Murray choose football, he would forfeit his $4.66 million signing bonus, while Oakland would retain his professional baseball rights.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Working toward agreement with A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray and the Athletics are in talks to agree upon a major-league contract, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

With rumors swirling about the possibility of Murray going to the NFL, Oakland is attempting to sign him to a major-league deal and add him to the 40-man roster. Murray has yet to officially declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, but it appeared he was heading in that direction prior to Sunday's meeting. If an agreement is reached, Major League Baseball would need to finalize the deal before it becomes official.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Expected to enter NFL Draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics expect Murray to declare for the NFL Draft, Susan Slusser and Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

While nothing is confirmed, it sounds like Murray, the ninth overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, is leaning towards going pro in football rather than baseball. Declaring for the draft doesn't guarantee that Murray will switch full-time to football; things should clear up in February when he decides whether to join the Athletics at spring training (Feb. 15) or participate in the NFL scouting combine (Feb. 26). Should Murray choose football, the Heisman winner would forfeit his $4.66 million signing bonus with the A's, though the team would retain his professional baseball rights.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Invited to big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray was invited to the Athletics' major-league spring training camp Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

All baseball-related news with Murray is contingent on him electing to stick with the sport and not switch full-time to football. His agent, Scott Boras, stated in December that Murray wouldn't be working out for NFL teams prior to the NFL draft, but the situation doesn't appear fully settled. Slusser also reports that it's highly unlikely that Murray will be able to play both sports, so it appears that a decision between the two will be made within the next few months. Murray is yet to make his professional baseball debut at any level, so the big-league camp invitation is nothing more than an opportunity for him to work with Oakland's major-league staff for a few weeks.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Won't work out for NFL teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray's agent Scott Boras informed Yahoo Sports that his client will not be participating in workouts for NFL teams and that Murray will report for spring training Feb. 10, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

There have been constant rumors surrounding Murray and the possibility that he may try to play both football and baseball, but as of now, it appears Murray will rule out a football career in favor of baseball. Expect the dual-sport athlete to stick to baseball following the conclusion of his college football season.

Athletics' Kyler Murray: Sights still set on baseball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray still plans on switching to baseball after wrapping up his college football career at the University of Oklahoma, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. "As of right now, I'm going to play baseball. That's about it," Murray said.

The ninth overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, Murray still intends to fulfill his commitment with the Athletics despite his rapidly improving NFL stock. While the 21-year-old is expected to report to spring training, the Heisman winner still hasn't ruled out a career in football, and stated as recently as last week that he would like to play both sports if possible. Assuming Murray sticks with baseball, he could develop into a 20-homer threat while offering impact speed on the bases and in center field.
