Here's Doug Gottlieb's first reaction to Kyler Murray Declaring for the draft.
Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy-winning QB from Oklahoma and 1st round pick of the Oakland A's, has declared for the NFL Draft.
He had the whole day to make it happen, and after much speculation, there's no better way to make it official than to make a big statement tweet on Twitter as of 12:23 pm PT
As Ken Rosenthal reported earlier today, Murray's decision to enter the NFL Draft doesn't close the door on baseball, as reports stated the A's expected this decision and consider it a procedural move. However, Rosenthal says the team would like to know Murray's decision by the time they start Spring Training in mid-February.
