Kyler Murray is picking football over baseball

The Miami Dolphins are more than likely in the market for a new quarterback while former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray could become the next star in South Florida.

Murray, an outfielder, was selected ninth overall by the Oakland Athletics in last year's 2018 Major League Baseball draft and signed a contract that was going to pay him $4.66 million.

Relating to the Patriots, they will always be interested in quarterbacks as long as Tom Brady is still on the roster since they need to find an eventual replacement. Until Monday. Now, Murray will turn his sights toward becoming a first-round choice in the April NFL draft. Oakland started spring training workouts Monday and had a locker with a No. 73 jersey waiting for him.

After transferring to Oklahoma from Texas A&M, Murray was the Sooners' backup quarterback behind Heisman victor and future No. 1 NFL pick Baker Mayfield for the 2017 football season. He is officially dedicating himself to a full-time football career, bypassing the opportunity, at least for now, to play professional baseball.

Before sanctions, the United States bought more than 500,000 bpd, making it Venezuela's largest buyer. Sanctions have forced Citgo and other US refiners to seek crude oil supplies from other nations.

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", the 2018 Heisman Trophy victor wrote on Twitter.

Murray passed for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns for Oklahoma last season. 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 National Football League championships. But at least one team that could really use a quarterback appears poised to take a hard pass on the Heisman trophy victor. Murray is a unique case as someone good enough to play both baseball and football at a high level, but the decision of which sport to pursue is one already happening at lower levels, as adolescents turn into teenagers and have to pick one sport going forward.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Giants appear to be an unlikely landing spot for Kyler Murray.
