Love it. Mookie Betts/Andrew McCutchen type peak with this kid. Hope he survives the football season!

Kyler is going to meet with Beane and management to discuss his future. All signs point to the NFL as his next step, so we get a better idea where we stand, and if he does go to the NFL he must pay us back the $4.66 million that was given to him when we drafted him.

He wants 15m dollar contract from us or he's going to be in the NFL draft.

Kyler officially going to the NFL.

Sucks to have lost him especially considering we don't get a comp pick for him or anything and he gets to keep a couple hundred thousand of the money.

Good luck to him in the NFL. Don't like the way he went about this leaving the A's in the dark for so long, but it is what it is.

It was a risk that we loss.
I hate it but we knew there was a big chance he would play football.

Teams lose their player/pick to when the free agent won't sign with a team. More recently was Atlanta with one of their top 10 picks.
