The big news of the day Monday came when Kyler Murray announced his intentions to play football over baseball, paving the way for Murray to potentially be drafted in the first round of April's NFL Draft.
At the time, many analysts were questioning how Murray would fare in the National Football League, especially since he was already drafted as an MLB player.
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. ESPN reported that Murray will return $1.29 million of the initial $1.5 million payment he received from the franchise and forfeit the final $3.16 million he would have received on March 1 entirely.

Kyler Murray's mind is made up. Football has been my love and passion my entire live. 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. "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".
Murray added that he has "started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming National Football League workouts and interviews".
Murray's unbelievable season in 2018 at Oklahoma was his first as a full-time starter for them.
As of right now, it seems the team will rely on veteran QB Eli Manning, but if they choose to select a QB that they like, they have an assortment of tall quarterbacks that include 6′"3 Dwayne Haskins, 6′"4 Drew Lock, and 6′"5 Daniel Jones". Murray will likely receive eight figures of guaranteed money if he is taken in the first round, so following his heart also makes financial sense.
