Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was the first player ever to be drawn in the first round of both the NFL and Major League Baseball. However, he chose to play football. He’s still itching to play both, though, as he put it earlier this season.
Does he get the chance?
Not if Cardinals general manager Steve Keim has a say.
Will he ever let Murray play both football and baseball?
“Hell no,” he continued Arizona Sports 98.7 FM on Friday.
That said, Keim is not worried that Murray will leave and return to baseball.
“I have great confidence in the fact that Kyler will continue to concentrate on football,” he added. “He’s a guy who when you talk to him about this game, he’s a football junkie.”
Murray also gives his opinion on players the Cardinals can land.
“He’s texted me several times about different opportunities, whether it’s free agents or college players,” Keim continued. “It’s what makes me happy about certain guys in our locker room when they are investing in the team that they want to see certain players from different teams or colleges join our organization.”
Murray football stuff for a reason. However, that baseball itch will remain for years. One of these days, however, it would not be a surprise to see him get a day of spring training one of these years.
