Oakland A's Desperately Trying To Dissuade Kyler Murray From Entering NFL Draft

  • Report: Oakland A's to Meet With Kyler Murray to Discuss Entering NFL Draft

Declaring for the draft would not necessarily prevent him from starting his baseball career.

While the draft declaration won't tip Murray's hand, he is facing a decision.

In the meantime, though, Murray has leverage. Seemingly, that could swing teams away from using a first-round pick on a player that could just get up and switch sports. But what happens after that is where this story truly begins, and may depend on a lot more negotiation and maneuvering, and also on just how the National Football League talent evaluators place him.

ESPN reported that Oakland, which selected Murray ninth overall in last summer's baseball draft, had received permission from MLB to offer the Oklahoma star a major league contract with guaranteed money. The A's don't want their prized first-round draft pick hurt on the football field because they are counting on him wearing an Oakland jersey come spring training.

Each year, Major League Baseball notifies teams of their draft bonus pools and global spending allotment. Boras would know that, being that he's baseball's most prominent agent. It's unclear if the Oklahoma Sooners Heisman victor wants $15 million on top of his almost $5 million signing bonus or just $15 million total.

That could be what's happening.

For that to happen, Murray would be a part of the A's 40-man roster from the start while beginning his minor-league career in the lower levels of the A's system.

Murray and the A's are set to meet on Sunday to discuss his professional future. The A's are in a tough spot with the possibility of losing Murray entirely. It makes sense for Murray to want to get as much guaranteed money as possible, particularly if he really wants to play football.
