"Moving forward, I am firmly and fully committing my life and time to becoming an National Football League quarterback", Murray tweeted Monday morning. Those that are in love with Murray are pleased with the announcement while others shake their head. "I was raised to play QB and I very much look forward to dedicating 100% of myself to being the best QB possible and winning NFL Championships".
Former Oklahoma quarterback, Heisman Trophy victor, and Oakland Athletics 2018 first-round draft pick Kyler Murray finally chose a sport on Monday. Murray put together one of the single greatest seasons in college football history with over 5,300 yards of total offense to go along with 54 touchdowns, while beating out Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa for the Heisman Trophy. Additionally, Murray began his college career at Texas A&M - there and in the past three years at Oklahoma he played in variations of the Air Raid offense run by Kingsbury.
Murray made no mention of the A's or baseball in his statement.

The Broncos were undoubtedly interested in Mayfield last year, which has me wondering if they are going to show any interest in Kyler Murray this year. Thanks to his decision, he will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million bonus and forfeit the remaining $3.16 million. 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. Who'd have thought that a few short months ago, with Kingsbury at Texas Tech and Kyler still an Major League Baseball prospect, that the Handsome One would really have the chance to take him first overall a few months later?
"Things have certainly changed since the draft", Beane said. "To say somebody could or couldn't, I'm not here to say that".
Kingsbury's Arizona Cardinals have the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft. "Something like that is something that is part of our private discussions".
