Kyler Murray Will Give Back Signing Bonus To A\'s, Pursue NFL Career 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Feb 11, 2019 10:32 pm

Kyle Murray has announced he is fully committed to becoming an NFL quarterback.

Murray\'s future has been in doubt as he was also a first round pick in the 2018 MLB Draft by the Oakland Athletics.

Murray will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money the A\'s gave him last year, a source told ESPN\'s Jeff Passan. 

\"Moving forward, I am firmly and fully committing my life and time to becoming an NFL quarterback,\" Murray wrote. \"Football has been my love and passion my entire life. I was raised to play QB, and I very much look forward to dedicating 100% of myself to being the best QB possible and winning NFL championships. I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming NFL workouts and interviews. I eagerly await the opportunity to continue to prove to NFL decision makers that I am the franchise QB in this draft.\"
