Kyler Murray still wants to play football and MLB baseball

Kyler Murray is still dreaming of one day resuming his baseball career and becoming a two-sport star according to Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic.

McManaman asked Murray Thursday if he would ever consider playing football and baseball in the same calendar year. "Athletically, I think yeah, I could do it," Murray said. "I’ve been playing both my whole life. I would love to add that to the résumé." Murray continued with expanded thoughts. "I don’t understand why in sports they try to marginalize it. They try to make you pick one and I get it, but we’ll see. I think it would be fun. Right now, though, I’m just focused on football." 

 This is definitely an eyebrow-raising response from the former top-10 pick of the Oakland A's but there is zero indication this is something Murray is considering in the near future. The Cardinals are not allowed to expressly prohibit Murray from playing baseball, though doing so would void all future guarantees in his contract.  The No.1-overall pick in the 2019 draft finished his rookie season with 3,722 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns, and 12 interceptions on 64% completions in 16 games and is a candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
