Taz and Moose start the second hour of the show talking about Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray. If he does choose the National Football League instead of MLB, Murray would have to forfeit his signing bonus. Murray, who was drafted by the Oakland Athletics last summer, was expected to join them in spring training, but now he reportedly could test the National Football League waters. However, even if they aren't his biggest fans, Murray's potential addition to the draft could affect the Jags in other ways. The NFL scouting combine begins on February 26. The Texas native batted.296 with 13 doubles, 10 home runs, a.954 OPS and 10 stolen bases for the Sooners baseball team, which led to him becoming a top-10 pick. All along, his agent Scott Boras has insisted that he's going to play baseball and if Murray does decide to hit the NFL Draft instead of playing baseball, he'd have to give back a large portion of that signing bonus. Will Leitch, contributing editor to New York Magazine, thinks this trend could go beyond bowl games. Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson was the last pick of the first round (No. 32 overall) in 2018. At present, the only thing guaranteed to Murray in his baseball career is that $4.66MM bonus. Is he making the right decision?
