The Oakland A's had hoped that 2018 first-round pick Kyler Murray would report to spring training, but that's clearly not going to happen. Now that he's firmly cemented himself as a football prospect who will attend the NFL Combine later this month, the attention shifts to Murray's potential NFL home. 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?

Kyler Murray said via his Twitter account he has already begun working toward the preparing to showcase his talents for National Football League teams as the Combine and Draft approaches. Murray might have tried to emulate them if he played a position other than quarterback. "To say somebody could or couldn't, I'm not here to say that".

Two-sport star Kyler Murray on Monday announced which of his passions he will pursue. The bad news for Oakland is that they won't get a redo on that No. 9 pick since they did in fact sign Murray. He will reportedly repay $1.29m (£1m) of the $1.5m (£1.17m) he received a year ago and forfeit the remaining $3.16m (£2.46m).

Murray will be one of the top quarterback prospects of the 2019 draft and will get a chance to exhibit his skills at the NFL combine February 26-March 4 in Indianapolis and subsequent workouts for NFL talent evaluators ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft on April 25-27 in Nashville.

According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, the Oklahoma Sooners Heisman victor will have to pay back $1.29 million of the $1.5 million the A's already paid him after drafting him ninth overall in 2018. Quarterback Sam Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick in April, will make about $30 million on his rookie deal; Josh Allen, the No. 7 pick, will make over $21 million on his rookie contract, according to Forbes.

Originally, the talk was that Murray might not be a first-round pick.
