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

Former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray apparently won't be the next Bo Jackson or Deion Sanders. After working out a deal in which he would play his final year of football at Oklahoma, Murray was supposed to then to focus on baseball.

The former Oklahoma quarterback Murray declared for the NFL draft in January, but announced he will pursue the NFL instead of MLB on Monday.

Kyler Murray's announcement on Monday that he's "firmly and fully" committed to pursuing his National Football League career brought rapid, rampant speculation about where the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback will land in the upcoming draft. Murray was the ninth overall pick in last June's baseball amateur draft, and the outfielder agreed to a minor league contract with the Oakland A's for a $4.66 million signing bonus, money he'll have to pay back.

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.

Democrats to acting AG Whitaker at Russian Federation hearing: 'We're not joking here'
His answers to Democrats' questions often focused on procedure and involved rhetorical wind-ups that ate up precious seconds. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein oversaw the investigation until Whitaker was appointed after Sessions's resignation.


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 a year ago.

The NFL draft begins on April 25.

Now, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Murray will have to return a significant portion of his baseball signing bonus. This is the argument that pro-Murray fans take. Murray was the second quarterback off the board following Ohio State signal-caller Dwayne Haskins; McShay has Haskins going No. 6 to the New York Giants. But it could also involve Arizona if another team falls in love with the quarterback to the point where the Cardinals could get involved in a trade.

Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders played football and baseball, but both men played less demanding positions: Jackson was a running back and Sanders a cornerback.
