    I imagine Murray will have a sizeable insurance policy on him. Use some of that signing bonus to get it. Make it huge...as much as possible.

    If he gets injured playing football he can cash in on the policy.

    Itís so crazy that Murray is going to make more money this year than Lincoln Riley. Iím having a hard time wrapping my head around that...

    Kyler might not be made for the NFL, but if he has a senior season that makes someone take a bite then he should ditch the baseball and go NFL. While it says Oakland signed him, that doesnít mean he is at THE SHOW. He still will have to progress through the minors to get there. If he falters then he could find himself at A league. That is barely enough to live on and traveling for that classification sucks. Making the NFL roster is guaranteed money with a guaranteed honored contract. Also MLB 1st term contracts have some really bad clauses in them which favors the organization tremendously. NFL contracts have more mobility.

    I think if Kyler is getting feelers from the NFL and he isnít dead set on baseball then he needs to try out football one last time.

    I think if you’re great at baseball and football, you should choose baseball every time. Unless you throughly enjoy playing football more. Money and health is a lot better in baseball. NFL contracts also lowballs the hell out of guys with the guaranteed and non guaranteed money.

    The A's are idiots to let him play football.

    They had no choice when they drafted him - let him play or lose him (and that draft pick). He told the entire league that he was playing football for the Sooners this year. That is why he was taken where he was instead of being taken #1 or #2 in the draft. So they didn't let him. He made this decision. They knew the deal when they drafted him.

    Still a stupid decision. If he gets hurt, that's a 1st round pick gone.

    Again he isnít at THE SHOW right away. He is in minor league so itís no loss to Billy Beane and the Aís. A first round pick in MLB is a lot different than a first round pick in the NFL

    Maybe they should all become "professional golfers" in the Eutaw mini-Tour. The potential for abuse is there.

    But even if he bombs he would stay under contract longer in baseball than he would in football. You're about guaranteed 5 years in baseball and that's if you stink it up, they don't just let go of top picks like that in baseball like they do in football and basketball.
