Kyler Murray is committing himself to football, the Heisman Trophy victor said Monday via social media. "Football has been my love and passing". I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming workouts and interviews.
It is believed Kyler Murray is a first-round talent, however where he is drafted in April has plenty to do with his size and measureables and which team is willing to draft him and use his skill set to their advantage.
Spring training is all about new faces meshing with organizational veterans and that is particularly true in minor-league camp.
Baker Mayfield, who was awarded the same hardware in 2017, was taken with the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft. 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).
Paris Saint-Germain's injury woes deepen as key defender is ruled out
Cavani may now increase the woes of PSG , after recently picking up a thigh injury during a recent Ligue 1 clash with Bordeaux . Speaking on French television on Sunday, manager Thomas Tuchel said: "There is no good news for Edi this morning".
Murray made no mention of the A's or baseball in his statement. Murray is preparing for the National Football League combine, which begins February 26, rather than spring training (Oakland's position players report Friday).
Murray now must give back or forfeit most of the $4.66 million signing bonus the A's gave him a year ago.
Maybe Murray didn't handle this particularly well - the A's probably merited a phone call in advance of his announcement - but for the A's to be surprised by his decision seems a bit of a stretch. Bidwill was asked if the organization felt the need to reach out to Rosen with Murray talk in play, particularly the speculation that the Cardinals could consider drafting Murray themselves.
Earlier on Monday, A's president Billy Beane said the situation around Murray was still uncertain. I don't have enough good things to say about him. He is expected to be an early draft pick in this year's NFL Draft. "Something like that is something that is part of our private discussions".
