Kyler Murray: I’m fully committed to football

Kyler Murray discusses the possibility of playing both football and baseball, why he's not worried about getting injured, and how Baker Mayfield helped him.

Kyler Murray is giving up baseball and focusing on football.

Murray, the Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma quarterback who was also a first-round pick of the Oakland A’s, revealed on Twitter today that he has decided to make the NFL his priority.

“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.”

Although there are still people inside the NFL who question whether Murray is tall enough to be a franchise quarterback, there’s no question that he was an incredibly productive quarterback in college. Now that he has publicly committed to being an NFL quarterback, he is likely to be a first-round draft pick.
