Sports Writer Let Go For Tweets About QB Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray is facing a very enviable decision. More

"All I know is Kyler has a tremendous opportunity to be a great baseball player and he knows that".

According to a source, Murray declaring for the draft is not considered to be contractually significant.

Murray, an outfielder on the diamond, is due to report to spring training in Arizona on February 15 - nearly two weeks before the NFL's scouting combine takes place. At that point, Murray would have to make a decision on what sport he wants to play.

Rosen's rookie year didn't go well, as he ranked 32nd among qualifying starters with a 55.2 percent completion rate and last with 5.8 yards per attempt and a 26.6 QBR. One G.M. said he hadn't even studied Murray's film, given the then-prevailing belief (as fueled by his baseball agent) that Murray would choose the hide of a horse over the skin of a pig.

Distant, Possibly Habitable Planet Spotted by Citizen Scientists
Among planets that orbit close to their stars, there's a curious dearth of worlds between about 1.5 and two times Earth's size. While impressive, it does not appear the planet has the attributes required to support life as a habitable world.

Sarri tells Fabregas to leave Chelsea
You know very well in this club there is a rule: The renewal of players over 30 is usually one year. The latest youth product to get itchy feet at Stamford Bridge is winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Good news, Kliff: You have the first pick. At present, the only thing guaranteed to Murray in his baseball career is that $4.66MM bonus. Baseball might have better long-term value, but the glitz, glamour and money that come with being the No. 1 pick in the National Football League draft might be too much to resist.

Texas Tech showed continued interest in Murray and offered him a scholarship once Kingsbury came aboard. He said right before winning the Heisman in December that he wasn't focused on baseball yet, because the Sooners still had Alabama looming in the Playoff. The Red Raiders obviously missed out on him twice, as he chose to play at two other Big 12 schools, but they've had to prepare for him three times going back to 2015. I try and keep 'em open as long as possible.

If Murray chooses the National Football League and does not play baseball, he would have to return the signing bonus, but the A's will not receive a compensation pick in this June's draft.
