Oakland A's to Meet With Kyler Murray to Discuss Entering NFL Draft

2019 NFL mock draft A's prospect Kyler Murray a projected first-round pick

The A's allowed him to return to the University of Oklahoma, where he put up historic numbers at quarterback and won the Heisman.

The eye-popping news comes in the wake of reports from earlier today from WFAA's Mike Leslie, who heard from a source that Murray wanted $15MM in new money to forego the National Football League for the Athletics.

According to multiple reports, Murray is asking for a significant increase in guaranteed money from Oakland - as he should, given he has incredible leverage right now - although the number is in flux.

He added that Ankara's mission in northern Syria is to purge terrorist groups from the entire area, not only Manbij. He suggested that the protection of Kurdish allies in the country would be a redline for the withdrawal.

Each year, Major League Baseball notifies teams of their draft bonus pools and global spending allotment. The A's had a total spending pool of $9,553,200 for 2018.

A contingent led by Oakland A's team president Billy Beane will meet with Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray on Sunday in hopes of getting him to skip the 2019 National Football League draft, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Boras would know that, being that he's baseball's most prominent agent. That would be taking special treatment to a new level, but MLB thinks that highly of Murray and wants him in baseball. I've said for a long time that I think Murray can hang in the NFL, and there's a lot of money to be made as a quarterback in the league. Vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane and general manager David Forst were among the A's leading representatives. In Murray's case, because he signed a minor league deal, and because his performance at Oklahoma changed the circumstances of his baseball career, Oakland would be within the rules to give Murray a long-term extension if that's what it takes to keep him in baseball, sources tell ESPN. The A's are in a tough spot with the possibility of losing Murray entirely.
