Kyler Murray chose N.F.L over M.L.B. What would you choose?
When Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy, the Oakland Athletics knew there was a chance he might chose football over baseball. That is exactly what happened. On the day the A's started spring training workouts, Murray said he will pursue a career in the NFL. Murray's baseball deal called for him to receive $1.5 million within 30 days of the deal's approval last summer by Major League Baseball and $3.16 million on March 1, in comparison, Murray's former Oklahoma teammate was paid a $21.8 million signing bonus after being drafted #1 by the Cleveland Browns. Given the same choice what would you do? We left off 'play both' because as a quarterback, it would be close to impossible to do so.
