Kyler Murray Wants $15 Million To Play For The Oakland A’s

2019 NFL mock draft A's prospect Kyler Murray a projected first-round pick

The Oakland Athletics are sending a group of top executives to meet with Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray on Sunday in the hopes of persuading him to pursue a professional baseball career as he decides between honoring his contract with the team or playing quarterback in the National Football League, sources with knowledge of the meeting told ESPN. Either way, it seems Murray is about to run into a bunch of money whether he opts for a career in baseball or football.

Last week, the Athletics were dealt a huge blow when they found out that Kyler Murray would likely forego playing baseball for them and enter his name into the NFL Draft instead.

According to multiple reports, Murray is asking for a significant increase in guaranteed money from Oakland - as he should, given he has incredible leverage right now - although the number is in flux.

That would be taking special treatment to a new level, but MLB thinks that highly of Murray and wants him in baseball.

So even if Murray was the last pick in the first round, he actually would bank more guaranteed money than he now has with the A's.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "It's looking increasingly likely Willian will be a Barcelona player come close of play this month". The 18-year-old winger, whose contract expires in June 2020, has been linked with a big money move to the Bundesliga giants.

Should Murray go the National Football League route rather than pursuing his career as an outfielder in the Athletics organization, the A's would get his signing bonus back, but they wouldn't receive a compensatory selection in the 2019 MLB Draft. In Murray's case, he has already signed a minor league deal last summer, which included a $4.6MM bonus as the ninth overall selection in the 2018 draft.

When considering his future earning potential, that's when it gets tricky.

Things are about to get real wild for Murray, and I can't wait to see what decision he makes tomorrow.

According to a report from ESPN's Jeff Passan, Major League Baseball would allow the A's to give Murray a major league contract.
