Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray chooses National Football League path over MLB

Dolphins rumors: Kyler Murray ‘would make a lot of sense’ for Miami

Dolphins rumors: Kyler Murray ‘would make a lot of sense’ for Miami

More specifically, ESPN's Jeff Passan tweets that Murray will return $1.29MM of the $1.5MM of his signing bonus that has been paid out to him so far.

After winning the Heisman Trophy and leading the Sooners to a semi-final playoff spot, former OU quarterback Kyler Murray says he has made a decision about his future. With as many draft picks as the Patriots have this year no player is off limits, so don't be surprised to see members of the organization checking out Murray over the next few weeks.

Murray was the ninth overall pick in last June's baseball amateur draft, and the outfielder agreed to a minor league contract with Oakland for a $4.66 million signing bonus.

Kyler Murray has officially chosen football over baseball. Although the A's were hoping he'd choose baseball, they were increasingly pessimistic the longer his locker in their spring-training clubhouse sat empty. "Football has been my love and my passion my entire life".

While Murray will be participating in both the NFL Combine and NFL Draft despite already being selected by the Oakland Athletics in the 2018 MLB Draft, it remains to be seen as to where exactly the reigning Heisman Trophy victor will come off the board come late April.

The NFL Combine is set to begin on February 26 with the 2019 NFL Draft scheduled for April 25 in Nashville.

Based on Murray's answer, he is all in on the National Football League, which spells bad news for the Athletics who will be losing out on a talented baseball player. He ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in FBS history. "The situation is fluid right now [based] on a historic college football season that the young man had".

"Obviously the fact that he would want to play quarterback, if he chooses the football route, is a little different than Deion or Bo or some of those guys", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in November.
