Kyler Murray is about to Create an NFL-MLB Bidding War

A's outfield depth can withstand potential loss of Kyler Murray to NFL

The Oklahoma quarterback has until Monday to declare for the National Football League draft or stick with baseball.

The A's selected Murray with the No. 9 overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft in June and gave him a $4.66 million bonus. The A's drafted Murray in the first round of the 2018 Major League Baseball draft in June.

In spite of an A's effort on Sunday to convince him not to do so, * it is anticipated that Murray will declare his eligibility for the National Football League draft by Monday's deadline, which wouldn't end his pro baseball career before it started but certainly makes that a real possibility - and.

The more interesting deadline is February 15 - the day Murray is supposed to report to the A's for the start spring training. A report last week said Murray is expected to declare for the NFL Draft. And according to WFAA's Mike Leslie, Murray (repped by agent Scott Boras) is hoping to use that leverage for a major raise. The A's understand the allure of football, which has become clear in recent months as Murray developed from an athletic but slight quarterback to a potential first-round pick.

If Murray picks football, he will have to forfeit his almost $5 million signing bonus from Oakland. According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the team will meet with Murray today to try and convince him to choose baseball. The A's are in a tough spot with the possibility of losing Murray entirely. In Murray's case, because he signed a minor league deal, and because his performance at Oklahoma changed the circumstances of his baseball career, Oakland would be within the rules to give Murray a long-term extension if that's what it takes to keep him in baseball, sources tell ESPN.
