Kyler Murray Still Won't Rule Out Possibility of Playing in MLB and NFL

Kyler Murray holds the rare honor of being a first-round draft pick in two different sports. He was the No. 8 overall selection by the Oakland A's in the 2018 MLB Draft and went No. 1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Murray has hinted in the past about his interest in playing both sports professionally and it appears those feelings have not gone away.

Murray wanting to play both sports may depend on if either team would be comfortable with him doing both. He may have to sign a contract that voids if he is injured while playing the other sport.

The quarterback is looking to follow in the footsteps of Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders. The only complication is his position. A team like the Cardinals surely won't love the idea of Murray's focus being elsewhere during the offseason.

Murray only said he thinks he can play both sports in the same season. The logistics of such a season become more difficult when getting into the details.

This will remain a topic of conversation throughout the signal-caller's career, and him continuing to keep the option on the table will only fuel the discussion.
