Kyler Murray says he's committing to the NFL

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

Heading into the NFL Draft, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray had a huge decision to make when it came to which sport he wanted to play. Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury keeps his word selects Murray with the first overall pick.

The 21-year-old made the decision four days before he was expected to report to baseball spring training for the A's. He ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in Bowl Subdivision history.

The A's were scheduled to pay Murray another $3.16 million on March 1.

This doesn't appear to be something that will really affect the Cardinals, but they have the first pick in the draft and some project Murray could end up being the first player selected in the draft.

"We took the best athlete on the board and who we thought was probably the best baseball player on the board, too", Athletics general manager David Forst said. "We've known all along this was a possibility". Murray will have to repay $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus he received from the A's, per ESPN.

"We are going to be rooting for him".

Murray showed off his skills taking batting practice at the Coliseum in an A's uniform back in June, greeted by "WELCOME TO OAKLAND" on the big scoreboard with his photo. "I get we have the first pick (in the upcoming National Football League draft) and so there's going to be a million scenarios over the next three months that are going to come up, but no, Josh is our guy".

Farhan Zaidi, the new Giants president of baseball operations, said Friday he was still seeking depth at the catcher position behind Buster Posey, who is recovering from season-ending right hip surgery. "To say somebody could or couldn't, I'm not here to say that".
