Kyler Murray hasn't completely closed the door on his baseball career.
"I still hold on to the three-sport title," said Murray, who was discussing his gaming exploits. "If the time came where I got to do what I wanted to do, which, I don't know, but I'm leaving it open. I think I can still play, for sure, but we'll add the gaming on to that. Don't shortchange me, please."
Murray is the only athlete to ever be selected in the first round of the MLB and NFL drafts. The Oklahoma product was scheduled to report to spring training with the Oakland Athletics in 2019 but ultimately opted to drop baseball upon winning the Heisman Trophy and becoming a top quarterback prospect.
"I know everybody around (the organization) probably feels different about it," Murray said. "But me personally, I played the game my whole life. If I ever had the opportunity, for sure, I would definitely go for it. What are we talking about? I'm sure anyone asking me about it would (take that opportunity) too. I'm not trying to start anything. I'm just talking."
