There is, however, no possibility that Murray could play both football and baseball in the same year. While Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that the $15MM figure is "too high", she notes that the A's and Murray's representatives from the Boras Corporation "are working on trying something creative to accommodate" Murray. Along the way, he became the second straight Oklahoma quarterback, joining Baker Mayfield, to win the Heisman. Since Murray is already technically under contract, no league rules would be broken if the A's were to sign him to a Major League contract now and add him to their 40-man roster.
"He's either going to be a Major League Baseball star or he's going to be a Pro Bowler", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said.
According to multiple reports, The A's met with Murray in Dallas on Sunday. Two sources told ESPN that the A's expected Murray to ask for more guaranteed money.
Last week, the Athletics were dealt a huge blow when they found out that Kyler Murray would likely forego playing baseball for them and enter his name into the NFL Draft instead. He is due into A's camp, where he planned on joining the major league players, by February 15.

We should know more about Murray's final decision soon. Murray would have four options, meaning he would need to join the A's full-time at latest by the 2022 season, though Oakland intends to aggressively promote Murray.
If Murray were to head to the National Football League, he would have to repay the bonus to the Athletics.
At 5-foot-9, he would be the shortest quarterback in the National Football League since Doug Flutie, who was listed at 5-10. It makes sense for the A's - if they are going to offer it - to wait until then to offer him the hefty amount.
