A source told the Chronicle that it seems like Murray is looking more towards a career in football.

The Oakland Athletics expect reigning Heisman Trophy victor and Athletics draft pick Kyler Murray to declare Sunday for the upcoming National Football League draft, multiple sources told Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. The NFL's scouting combine begins on February 26, which Murray will likely attend if he chooses to go the football route.

"Some see Murray's size as a factor (he's listed at 5'10" but probably shorter than that), but his skill set is so great teams will be willing to take a shot on him.

MPs vote to further bind Theresa May's hands on Brexit
The de-facto deputy Prime Minister, David Lidington, said the only way to avoid a disruptive no-deal "is for Parliament to endorse and ratify a deal".

Murray's agent, Scott Boras, told The Chronicle in December that his client planned to report to the A's.

Murray's potential declaration for the NFL draft doesn't mean he'll choose to play football over baseball, but it gives Murray the extra option. "I'd take him with the first pick in the draft if I could".

Last month, on the eve of the Heisman ceremony, it was clear that Murray was torn about which sport he wanted to play.

China pledges to buy more United States goods as trade talks end
Few details have emerged from the trade talks, which are scheduled to run through Tuesday. China aimed to buy at least 5 million tons of American soybeans as part of the truce .

According to a source, Murray declaring for the draft is not considered to be contractually significant.

If Murray decides to play in NFL especially at the quarterback position teams will expect him to be all in on football and nothing else, that is the only way he will be selected in 1st round if they have those assurances.

That said, the Cardinals spent a first-round pick on quarterback Josh Rosen last season, and while he struggled throughout much of his rookie season, the odds are against Arizona selecting a quarterback in the first round in back-to-back drafts. "I would take him with the first pick".

Suspected gunman in Jazmine Barnes murder has lengthy criminal history
O'Neal and a Houston police officer, Kenneth Miles , brought a cashier's check to the family last week to pay for the funeral. The family was stopped at a red light near a Walmart when shots shattered the vehicle windows, striking Jazmine in the head.

The Cardinals may have taken Josh Rosen at quarterback a year ago, but if Kingsbury believes in Murray that much, they should take him all the way and just trade Rosen.
