Kyler Murray's National Football League commitment and what it means for Bengals

Kyler Murray's National Football League commitment and what it means for Bengals

The Arizona Cardinals went out of their way to debunk, deny and rebuff any insinuation or whisper that the team would even consider drafting Kyler Murray and trading quarterback Josh Rosen.

"Kyler is a tremendous player", Kingsbury said according to ESPN.

Like his predecessor at Oklahoma, Kyler Murray may not have to wait long until his name is called on draft day, however. "I would take him with the first pick of the draft if I could", Kingsbury said at the time.

On Monday, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller sent out a cryptic tweet that suggests the Arizona Cardinals have already informed Murray that they will be selecting him.

"Moving forward, I am firmly and fully committing my life to being an National Football League quarterback", Murray stated in the post.

Last season for the Oklahoma Sooners, Murray threw for 4,361 yards, 42 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

Aguero missed his first chance to seal a second hat-trick in two games when he headed against the crossbar. Talk about Carragher killing two birds with one stone! "I said thank you to them for what they have done".

Oakland will not receive a compensation pick even if Murray chooses another sport because the Heisman Trophy victor already signed his minor league deal, and compensation picks only go to teams unable to sign their first-round pick. He is a football quarterback and eligible for this year's NFL draft which starts April 25. Murray had signed a minor league contract with a $4.66 million signing bonus.

"I was raised to play QB, and I very much look forward to dedicating 100% of myself to being the best QB possible and winning National Football League championships".

Baker Mayfield, Murray's predecessor as Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman victor, received a guaranteed US$32.7 million for being selected as No 1 pick by the Cleveland Browns and is already an established star while almost all baseball rookies have to do a few gruelling years in the minor leagues before they get their shot at the big time.

Arizona now holds the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 draft. ". The process was right and I think [A's president of baseball operations] Billy [Beane] told you guys this morning we don't regret the pick at all".

I am not sure if Murray, who stands 5-foot-10 and weighs 195 pounds, is the type of quarterback who can survive with the Jaguars if the offensive line is not improved and healthy for the upcoming season.
