Kyler Murray reportedly wants a lot of money to stick with baseball and play for the Oakland A’s instead of entering the 2019 NFL Draft.
According to Mike Leslie of WFAA in Dallas, Murray wants $15 million from the Oakland A’s, otherwise he’ll enter the NFL Draft on Monday.
According to a source close to the situation, Kyler Murray’s number is $15M.
He wants big time money to stick with baseball, otherwise he will enter the NFL draft tomorrow.
The A’s are doing everything they can, sending their top brass, led by Billy Beane, to meet with him.

It’s unclear if the Oklahoma Sooners quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner wants the $15 million on top of his $5 million signing bonus or just $15 million total.
Earlier this week it was reported that Murray would forego baseball and enter the NFL Draft but the Oakland Athletics had one last opportunity to change Murray’s mind before Monday.
We’ll see what happens..
