Kyler Murray Has Officially Made A Decision On The NFL

Dolphins rumors: Kyler Murray ‘would make a lot of sense’ for Miami Kyler Murray announces major decision about future in the NFL

Murray made no mention of the A's or baseball in his statement. It's going to be a lot of fun to see him play in the NFL.

Murray says he is following his heart to play football.

Although baseball's guaranteed contract structure is alluring for the select few players who reach arbitration and free agency, choosing the National Football League offers Murray a more certain financial future.

And as The Athletic's Dane Brugler pointed out recently, "Over the last three years, 10 of the 11 quarterbacks drafted in the first round were selected by a team who traded up to secure the pick". Thanks to MLB's draft-slotting rules, the $5 million bonus from the A's is the most they were allowed to give him. "But there are some QB hungry teams who might be looking to move up in the draft order and Murray - albeit 5'9" or 5'10" - is a unique athlete and most prognosticators feel he will be a first-round pick come April along with Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State), Drew Lock (Missouri) and Daniel Jones (Duke). That, too, is according to the league's design-one that artificially suppresses salaries for young players through the arbitration system and keeps them from unfettered free agency for half a decade (where the owners have now also chose to keep their checkbooks closed, too).

Venezuela shifts oil ventures' accounts
The bottleneck has caused problems for PDVSA to continue producing and refining oil without imported diluents and components. Last year, when asked by Iran for support, OPEC did not issue any formal comments on the US sanctions on Iran either.

There's officially a big-time quarterback available for National Football League teams to consider. Although the A's were hoping he'd choose baseball, they were increasingly pessimistic the longer his locker in their spring-training clubhouse sat empty. We could even see another team offer the Vikings a haul, likely including multiple first-round picks, in order to draft the 2018 Heisman victor.

In his lone season as the full-time starter at Oklahoma, Murray was electrifying.

The reigning Heisman Trophy victor posted a statement on his Twitter account Monday, four days before he was scheduled to report to spring training with the Oakland Athletics. Oakland will put him on the restricted list for the time being, though that move is purely a formality for now, given the emphatic nature of Murray's announcement. Murray picking football over baseball is no surprise at all; for MLB, that may be the worst part of it all.
