With news that Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray will declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, there's now rumblings about potential landing spots for the Heisman victor.

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray could be keeping the football pads on a little longer instead of only taking his talents to the Major League Baseball stage.

If recent reports are true, it appears the Heisman Trophy just won't be enough to quench the gridiron thirst of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.

Murray was drafted No. 9 overall by the A's in the 2018 MLB Draft following his spectacular spring season at Oklahoma. And on Wednesday, news broke that Murray intends to enter the NFL Draft.

Murray would need to make a decision within the next month even if he declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. Given his abilities as both a passer and runner, combined with the success Mayfield had as a rookie, the expectation is Murray would be a first-round pick and have success in the NFL. A source told the Chronicle that it seems like Murray is looking more towards a career in football.

No-deal Brexit would be 'disastrous', says United Kingdom minister
MPs are now taking part in a week of debate ahead of a vote on the Prime Minister's Brexit deal next week. Some of Japan's leading companies in Britain have warned that a no-deal Brexit could be a disaster.

Murray's agent, Scott Boras has said multiple times, he will play baseball. He received $4.9 million guaranteed, but was allowed to play football this season under the contract. The NFL scouting combine begins on February 26.

"Was that a deal-breaker for you if they didn't want you to go back to".

From a financial basis, Murray's first National Football League contract could be worth more money than his baseball deal.

But about five minutes in, one question, in particular, stumped Murray. Some pundits have him as a possible first-round pick. The Cardinals hold the No. 1 overall pick. The Indianapolis Colts traded down from the third pick to the sixth pick in last year's draft and added three second-round picks for the trouble.
