Why Giants Probably Won’t Draft Kyler Murray Despite QB Need

Dolphins rumors: Kyler Murray ‘would make a lot of sense’ for Miami Kyler Murray announces major decision about future in the NFL

If he's selected anywhere in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, he can expect to earn more than twice what he'd have earned with the Athletics' signing bonus; last year's No. 32 overall pick, Lamar Jackson, signed for almost $9.5MM and will earn the entirety of that sum.

And while a large number of people seem to think that Murray made the right decision by choosing football, the choice was obviously met by a lot of disappointment from baseball fans. "I eagerly await the opportunity to prove to National Football League decision makers that I am the franchise QB in this draft".

Oakland drafted Murray with the ninth overall pick last June.

The reigning Heisman Trophy victor posted a statement on his Twitter account Monday, four days before he was scheduled to report to spring training with the Oakland Athletics.

However, Murray had a brilliant college football season in 2018, passing for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns for Oklahoma.

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

As of now, no team in the top five is expected to go after a QB (although you never know.) Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins has been regarded as the top quarterback, and that may ultimately remain the case.

Murray, who attends the University of Oklahoma, announced his decision in a Twitter post just four days before he was scheduled to report to the A's spring training program. Murray will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money the A's gave him past year, a source told ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray says he will pursue a career in the National Football League over playing baseball for the Oakland Athletics.

Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders played both football and baseball, but Jackson was a running back and Sanders a cornerback. Quarterback Sam Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick in April, will make about $30 million on his rookie deal; Josh Allen, the No. 7 pick, will make over $21 million on his rookie contract, according to Forbes.
