Kyler Murray says he is 'fully committing' to becoming National Football League quarterback

Josh Rosen threw for 11 touchdowns 14 interceptions and a 66.7 rating in his rookie season for the Arizona Cardinals

Kyler Murray is committing himself to football, the Heisman Trophy victor said Monday via social media. With the help of super agent Scott Boras, Murray agreed to a lucrative contract that would allow him to play the 2018 football season at OU before reporting to spring training in 2019. Murray dazzled on the gridiron for the Sooners, throwing for 3,674 yards and 37 touchdowns and while rushing for 853 yards and 11 scores.

Murray was already slated to attend the NFL Scouting Combine at the end of February, where he'll be one of the most watched prospects. Football has been my love and passion my entire live. Adding Murray to this year's crop only increases the likelihood of quarterbacks going early in the draft. But perhaps Murray can slip in, a beneficiary of not only his athletic skills but also the success in the recent past of Russell Wilson and Baker Mayfield - shorter QBs who have proven themselves on the National Football League level. Regardless where he goes, his earnings will be capped by the National Football League draft slotting system, so the Oakland org will at least have a chance to submit a final, higher bid.

Taking to Twitter, Herbstreit wished Murray good luck in his NFL preparation and had a message for the rest of the league.

Now, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Murray will have to return a significant portion of his baseball signing bonus.

Just minutes before, Oakland manager Bob Melvin had said that the A's remained "cautiously optimistic" that Murray would pick baseball and would report with the team's position players Saturday.

Murray showed off his skills taking batting practice at the Coliseum in an A's uniform back in June, greeted by "WELCOME TO OAKLAND" on the big scoreboard with his photo. "To say somebody could or couldn't, I'm not here to say that". Despite many draft analysts insisting that this year's quarterback class isn't particularly strong, most still expect at least three of four quarterbacks to go in the first round, perhaps even in the top 10.
