Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray officially declared on Monday that he would enter the NFL Draft and play football instead of playing baseball.
Murray was drafted by the Oakland A's and even had a contract but had a decision to make over whether to attend the NFL Combine, thus missing the beginning of spring training, or going with baseball. He ultimately chose football, saying he was "raised to play QB."

Now, over the next two months until the draft, much of the discussion around Murray will be about his height. NFL teams get skittish about short quarterbacks, and Murray isn't exactly built like Carson Wentz or Cam Newton.
But just how tall is Murray, exactly? It appears the Oklahoma Sooners — the school Murray attended — don't even know.
On Oklahoma's website, Murray has a player profile for both baseball and football. The problem is he's listed at 5-foot-10 on the football page and 5-foot-11 on the baseball page.


The difference between 5-foot-10 and 5-foot-11 is minimal. The discussion might be even bigger if one side listed him as 6 feet while the other listed him as 5-foot-11.
Plenty of shorter quarterbacks have thrived in the NFL, from Russell Wilson to Drew Brees to Baker Mayfield. With NFL offenses evolving to make quarterbacking easier than ever, Murray's height shouldn't be the problem teams once thought it would be.

I think this sucks for the A's. And he should be forced to return every penny that they paid him, not just a pro-rated portion.

The A's should of been smart enough not to draft him in the first place considering eveyone and their bald-headed greasy grandma knew he was going to pick football. I do agree with you though, the A's should get back every penny.

I'd like to see Jacksonville or Cincinnati draft him, only for Murray to say, "Fuck you, I'm playing baseball."

I'd say it if the Raiders drafted me right now.

The Raiders would cut Carr and play you.

Watch last week's episode of Mom on CBS.  There is a cop in the show that's doing security for one of the women and he mentions that his wife took his Raiders tickets in the divorce.  The best quote I've heard in a TV show in a long time:  "Yeah, the only thing more painful than watching a Raiders game these days is when they show those two empty seats in the end zone".  God I laughed at that for a long time.  Chuck Lorre, the guy that started the show, is an old Raiders fan.  The last names of some key members of the show are Plunkett, Banaszak, and Janikowski.
