Kyler Murray hasn't changed his thought process this season in choosing the MLB over the NFL.

"Nothing has changed," he said. "I haven't put any energy into worrying about it or anything like that. All I can do is go out and play on Saturday and let my play speak for itself."

Murray signed a $4.66 million contract to play baseball for the Oakland A's this summer, but he hasn't completely ruled out the possibility of playing in the NFL.

"It's never bad to have options," Murray said Thursday, "but right now my main focus is this game."

Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards, 40 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He has rushed for 892 yards and 11 touchdowns.

"Obviously it wasn't in the air, but I've always felt I could play in the NFL," he said. "I'm a confident guy. There's not a lot of short quarterbacks in the league, but I think there's more guys paving the way for the transition of not really caring about how big you are, how tall you are. I've played this game my whole life and I've always felt I could do it."
