Former Oklahoma Quarterback Kyler Murray says he is going all in as a football player.
Murray said in a tweet: “Moving forward I’m firmly and fully committing my life and time to becoming an NFL quarterback. Football has been my love and passion my entire life. 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. I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming NFL workouts and interviews. He also added “I eagerly await the opportunity to continue to prove to NFL decision makers that I am the franchise QB in this draft.”
The A’s drafted Murray 9th overall last June and he agreed to a minor league contract that included a $4.66 million signing bonus.
Murray won the Heisman trophy last season, throwing for more than 4,300 yards, with 42 touchdowns. He led the Sooners to the College Football Playoffs.
