On Monday, former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray officially announced he's committed to football.

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", the 2018 Heisman Trophy victor wrote on Twitter. The 21-year-old is eligible for this year's National Football League draft, which takes place in April and if he is picked in the first-round, as many pundits believe he will be, he would receive a sizable signing bonus.

Oklahoma Sooners star quarterback Kyler Murray has officially made a decision to focus on football going forward, leaving nearly $5 million on the table from the Oakland Athletics who drafted him 9th overall in the 2018 MLB Draft.

While this wasn't entirely surprising given Murray's ascent on the gridiron since the A's chose him with the ninth overall pick in June, it did seem to catch Oakland a bit off guard.

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray raises the MVP trophy after defeating the Texas Longhorns in the Big 12 Championship at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Saturday, December 1, 2018.

The Broncos were undoubtedly interested in Mayfield last year, which has me wondering if they are going to show any interest in Kyler Murray this year. 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. But there is little question Murray has a chance to create a little havoc on draft's Thursday night, and where he might land will be one of the draft's central storylines over the next few months. He is not a prototypical National Football League quarterback at just 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, but his skills make him an intriguing option. He led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff semifinals.

"Quarterback is a very demanding position, as is being a major-league baseball player", A's executive vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane said. It's of course entirely possible that at some point in the indeterminate future Murray will decide to give baseball a go.
