Murray's locker remained empty on Monday, Feb. 11, 2019, in the spring training clubhouse of the Oakland Athletics, who say they are uncertain when or if the Heisman Trophy victor will report to the baseball team he signed with last summer.

Relating to the Patriots, they will always be interested in quarterbacks as long as Tom Brady is still on the roster since they need to find an eventual replacement.

It is very possible - and more than likely at this point - that both Haskins and Murray come off the board before the end of the first round of this year's NFL Draft. "Football has been my love and passion my entire life".

Let's take a look at a scenario involving Murray going to the Broncos, and get to know some other players in this year's draft class who could potentially join him in Denver. That, too, is according to the league's design-one that artificially suppresses salaries for young players through the arbitration system and keeps them from unfettered free agency for half a decade (where the owners have now also chose to keep their checkbooks closed, too). Billy Beane, Oakland's executive vice president of baseball operation, said talks are continuing with Murray, who may drop baseball to pursue an National Football League career.

ESPN's Todd McShay, in the 2.0 version of his mock draft before Murray's announcement, had the Oklahoma product going 13th overall to the Miami Dolphins. One can imagine that all of those factors were weighed heavily by Murray when making the decision to ultimately spurn the A's in pursuit of football. Professional football is no cakewalk itself, but it does offer a better landing spot for his particular skills as a highly mobile and strong-armed passer in a league where that's now all the rage.

That Murray himself would answer the baseball-football debate with a tweet at 11:46 a.m. What kind of draft class could they form around him? The A's will retain his rights if he does choose to return to baseball in the future. Still Forst said, "We'll focus on what we need to do to make sure that if he comes back to baseball at some point, he comes back with the A's".
