Kyler Murray, who was the ninth pick in last year’s MLB draft, is expected to be a high pick in next week’s NFL draft and seemingly intends to play football.
The Oakland Athletics, who drafted Murray, have tried to keep him in baseball by any means necessary.
According to a report, the A’s have offered him an additional $14 million in guaranteed money.
The A’s had originally signed Murray to a pact that included a signing bonus nearing $5 million. In other words, they would’ve been willing to guarantee him around $19 million before he’d played in a regular-season game.
