Oakland A's executive Billy Beane talks Kyler Murray as spring training begins

Kyler Murray NFL Draft

Murray added that he has "started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming National Football League workouts and interviews".

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network noted that Murray received about a $5 million signing bonus from Oakland (which he'll have to repay), and if he's the last pick in the NFL's first round, he'll get almost $5 million as a signing bonus and roughly $10 million guaranteed.

On Monday, Murray tweeted that he is "committing to football".

Over the last few weeks, Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray has had a huge decision to make: play football or stick to baseball?

Murray was supposed to report to spring training for the A's on Friday.

"Things have certainly changed since the draft", Billy Beane, Oakland's executive vice president of baseball operations, said Monday, via the Associated Press. "The situation is fluid right now and based on a historic college football season that the young man had". Of course, Murray was drafted and signed by the Oakland Athletics in the Major League Baseball but Murray has the potential to be a very high pick in the upcoming NFL Draft on April 25th. "Something like that is something that is part of our private discussions".

This afternoon, Murray took to Twitter to announce his decision.

According to ESPN, Murray will have to return $1.29m of his $1.5m signing bonus and will not receive the remaining $3.16m.

By failing to report to A's camp, he must return a almost $5 million signing bonus, but he will make all that back - and then some - if he's a first-round pick. With as many draft picks as the Patriots have this year no player is off limits, so don't be surprised to see members of the organization checking out Murray over the next few weeks. Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick last April, can expect to earn just under $33 million over his rookie contract with the Cleveland Browns, including a signing bonus of more than $22 million.
