Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray won’t be enjoying within the NFL subsequent season.
That is the emphatic assertion from Scott Boras, Murray’s agent who negotiated a $4.66 million contract with the Oakland Athletics. The A’s made Murray the ninth choose within the 2018 MLB Draft.
“Kyler has agreed and the [Oakland] A’s agreed to a baseball contract that gave him permission to play faculty soccer by way of the top of the collegiate season,” Scott Boras informed the NFL Community. “After that, he’s below contract to play baseball. That’s not a willpower to make. It is already achieved.”
After the Heisman announcement on Saturday, Murray was requested if he was open to enjoying soccer as a professional, in addition to baseball.
“I might love to do each, if doable,” Murray mentioned. “However I do not know the way doable that’s.”
Unattainable for now, in accordance with Boras.
“From a contractual perspective, it’s set,” he mentioned.
If he was to determine to play soccer and forgo a baseball profession, scouts have indicated he can be not more than a second-round choose and most certainly a third-round choose.
