ATLANTA — Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray entered the NFL draft with the goal of playing two professional sports.
He said in a live studio interview it might require a team in the Bay Area — the San Francisco 49ers or Oakland Raiders — given he already was drafted by the Oakland Athletics.
“In my head, I would love to play both. That would be up to the Raiders and the A’s,” Murray told The Dan Patrick Show at the Super Bowl on Friday.
The Raiders are scheduled to move to Las Vegas in 2020.
Murray said he didn’t know if he was going to spring training, and his father would not answer the question from Patrick.
Murray also said he wasn’t sure he would attend the NFL Scouting Combine at the end of the month and would not commit to taking part in a Pro Day workout.
Size questions will be common for the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Oklahoma if he attempts to carve a path in the NFL.
“The last I recall, my freshman year, 5-10,” Murray said, when prodded for his official height.
