    Baseball. Guaranteed money. Less injuries. They give you years in the minors to develope. Winston, RG3 etc etc are mega stars until injuries hit them. In two years you could be cut. Too many risk with not as much reward. Unless he loves football as much as Tom Brady loves football.

    Love Kyler but he's too small to play professional football. Especially at the QB position. Russell Wilson's & Drew Brees of the world are extremely rare. Take that guaranteed baseball money & play for the next 15-20 years.

    For a running QB with his height, best and safer to stick with baseball. He was advised properly to make that decision. NFL isn't college football, those are beasts.

      For some reason I don't think they are deciding for him. It's for fans to discuss, like we are here. I'm entertained reading everyone's opinions, including yours. I think baseball is a safer choice unless he loves football like Tom Brady loves the game. IMHO

    For any other position other than quarterback He should choose baseball
    But here is the case for being a quarterback. Quarterback is the one position that NFL teams are willing to give large amounts of guaranteed money to. Aaron Rodgers is the highest paid quarterback in the NFL and he makes $33.5 million per year. Star quarterback’s now a days typically exceed $25 million per year.
    That is competitive with what the highest paid major league baseball player speak on a per year basis. It is fair to point out that major league baseball gives longer contracts and those contracts are fully guaranteed so even if a player becomes terrible they can still cash in.
    However perhaps Kyler Murray wants to become famous. Major league baseball has receded In popularity. Baseball tonight used to be on every single weekday but now it’s only a weekly show during the baseball season. The reason they made the changes because ratings dropped so much. Sports the beach or squarely talk about baseball even during its post season and when baseball is talked about it’s typically when players do something wrong like be racist or hit women.
    Peyton Manning,Tom Brady, drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers Are greater stars then what exists in baseball. These guys are famous even among people who are not at all sports fans. They have the ability to earn advertising money that is just not available for baseball stars. By advanced statistics Mike Trout is considered one of the greatest baseball players in history however he is virtually unknown compared to star NFL quarterbacks.
    Also NFL quarterbacks have the longest careers of any NFL players other than kickers and the lowest injury risk other than kickers and punters.
    Also baseball is very difficult. Many people say the hardest thing in all sports is hitting major league pitching. How do we know Kyler Murray isn’t a replacement level hitter at the major-league level?
    The only position it makes rational sense to choose over professional baseball is a quarterback

      ThomasFromTN he’s going to make pennies in the minors compared to what his first potential nfl contract could be. If he went number 1 like the coach of the team with the number 1 pick says he could go, then he would have 20M+ guaranteed that would blow his current contract out of the water. And the endorsement money isn’t even close

  • Jay Murphy
    Jay Murphy 4 months ago

    You guys are all forgetting that in Football you have such a more chance of starting being a heisman winning QB, Baseball you will start max AA ball and there is no gurantee you’re moving up, you will have to fight your way up. Football whatever team drafts you, they’re most likely in need for a QB and want him as there starter. I am aware, in the long run if you do go big leagues, you can get alot of money injury free, but that’s an if, going football is a guranteed you’re starting but you can get injured. Plus the Athletics system doesn’t fit him for his future, the athletics are going to be an amazing team in a couple years, so baseball isn’t the best option. Everybody looks at " Oh well baseball you don’t really get injured ", but truly i think he should go football. We are talking about a 9th overall MLB pick who won’t play for 5 years, or he goes NFL right away and starts. Long run injury free, sure i guess MLB, but he is a insane football player. Football > Baseball.

  • Colton G

    Obviously the NFL has a larger fanbase, and people WANT to see Kyler in the NFL, but the smart, and really the only logical choice is that he picks baseball. They get paid more money (and more GUARANTEED money), there's less risk of injury, thus prolonging his playing career and making him less miserable throughout the years, whereas NFL players deal with injuries more often than not. Plus, the kid is about 5'9'', MAYBE 5'10" if we're being generous. That's not going to cut it in the NFL. Russell Wilson & Drew Brees are two exceptions, but they're both closer to about 6'0'', and a couple inches makes a HUGE difference in terms of field vision & batted passes. Plus, Kyler has already shown in college that he's not that accurate of a passer. He'd be making the worst decision of his life if he chose the NFL over the MLB (and this is coming from someone who hates baseball and thinks it's the most boring sport on the planet).

      You are underestimating how difficult baseball is.
      www.mlb.com/news/top-3-draft-picks-who-never-made-the-majors/c-265745454
      that is a list of top 3 draft picks that never even made the majors. Its not that they were simply busts at the major league level, its that they never got called up. The failure rate of draft picks in baseball is much higher than in the NBA or NFL.
      Because baseball has such limited popularity nowadays people dont realize that its drafts are much less important than the NBA and especially the NFL. This is because baseball is by far the hardest sport to project. Its almost impossible to measure how well a hitter will be able to tell a breaking ball from a fast ball of a big league pitcher. Guys that can absolutely rake lower levels of pitching might be hopelessly overmatched at the big league level. This is why teams value prospects much more than draft picks. Eg. players that are relatively proven in the minors.
      there is no evidence Kyler Murray can hit triple A pitchers or even double A pitchers, much less the big leagues. There is a very realistic chance that if Kyler chose baseball the $4.6 million signing bonus might be 99% of the money he ever makes in baseball.
      Baseball has more money than the NFL if you make it to the bigs, outlast your first contract and become a free agent. That is so hard to do. Kyler will make more money as a bust in the NFL as a QB than he would as a bust in MLB. Kyler was draft 8th overall and his guaranteed MLB money was 4.6 million. Lamar Jackson was drafted 32 overall by the ravens and his guaranteed money is 8 million.
      "Lamar Jackson signed a four year contract with the Baltimore Ravens worth $9,471,652 on June 5, 2018. Jackson received $8, 055,062 in guarantees including a $4,968,472 signing bonus. The other guaranteed portions of the contract are Jackson's entire 2018, 2019 & 2020 salaries and $355,000 of his 2021 salary. Jackson was the 32nd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft."

      As long as Kyler is drafted in the first round, he would be better off being a bust in the NFL than in MLB.

      +Al Vinn you can get paid if your amazing at defense playing outfield. I'm a Sox fan so I think of Jackie Bradley Jr. He's our 9th hitter with little power. Not getting much from the nine hole but oh man his defense saves runs all the time. IMHO

      +EasySnake three words 🐍, RG3. With one knee injury, then you can't escape and unless your a classic pocket QB where your protected somewhat, once you get out the pocket and run, your just another running back and they don't last long. IMHO

    • david sabillon
      david sabillon 4 months ago +1

      Playoff baseball is somehow different, don't you think? 162 games to get in the dance and every single damn pitch counts in the playoffs. Your closer having a bad week? Good bye. Your cleanup hitter is in a slump? Sayonara. Of course football is a one game series but.... IDK, October baseball is special IMHO.

    • Al Vinn
      Al Vinn 4 months ago

      If he's a first rounder he can get a fully guaranteed contract pretty easily being a QB. Even some running backs from recent drafts have gotten that plus 10 plus million in signing bonuses (like Christian McCaffrey's rookie deal).
      MLB salary averages get really distorted by top players. Baseball pays the faces of the league VERY well, so him being an OF means he could make big money in baseball if he has a big playmaker type of impact on his team (becomeone of the faces of the franchise essentially) , otherwise he's gonna leave tons of money on the table if he is a highly ranked QB (dunno if he is, never even seen him play football lol)

      There's more nagging (production dropping) injuries in baseball, football has more big injuries. And the money.... you gotta be in the upper echelons of your league or one of the usually top players in your franchise your franchise to get more money than you can get as a QB.

By advanced statistics Mike Trout is considered one of the greatest baseball players in history however he is virtually unknown compared to star NFL quarterbacks.
      Also NFL quarterbacks have the longest careers of any NFL players other than kickers and the lowest injury risk other than kickers and punters.
      Also baseball is very difficult. Many people say the hardest thing in all sports is hitting major league pitching. How do we know Kyler Murray isn’t a replacement level hitter at the major-league level?
      The only position it makes rational sense to choose over professional baseball is a quarterback

      You can be mediocre in baseball and play for years. Utility guys go from team to team where they are needed. Look at the world series MVP Price. A journeyman getting 6-8 million a year.

    Baseball is so much better. Less injuries, more guaranteed money, and he *guaranteed* won't kill himself at 50-60.

      The rules have changed a lot of this. They have emphasized roughing penalties to such a degree that it has changed the mentality of many defensive players. To defenders there is nothing worse than getting to fourth down only to give up a first down on a roughing call.
      Look Baseball is a lot harder than most people appreciate. A lot of high picks never make it to the pros or make and fail. Its very hard to project how someone will handle big league pitching. There are guys that can absolutely rake single A and double AA ball but are terrible against higher levels of pitching. For some high draft picks their signing bonus is the most money they will ever make. and the salaries in the minor leagues are a joke.
      There is a very realistic chance Kyler gets into the minor system and never makes it with the big league club and his signing bonus is 99% of his compensation.
      If kyler is drafted in the first round he will make more money than his baseball signing bonus.
      "Lamar Jackson signs rookie contract with Ravens. The No. 32 overall pick signed his rookie contract Tuesday, the team announced. The deal, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, pays out $9.47 million with a $4.97 million signing bonus."
      Anywhere in the first round and he makes more than he would if he failed in baseball.
      Now lets assume he makes it in baseball. People only hear about the top end of Baseball players.
      1. Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout | Position: OF | 2018 salary: $34.1 million
      2. Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw | SP | $32.3 million
      3. D-Backs' Zack Greinke | SP | $32 million
      4. Philles' Jake Arrieta | SP | $30 million
      4. Red Sox's David Price | SP | $30 million
      4. Tigers' Miguel Cabrera | 1B | $30 million
      7. Mets' Yoenis Cespedes | OF | $29 million
      8. Tigers' Justin Verlander | SP | $28 million
      9. Cubs' Jon Lester | SP | $27.5 million
      10. Angels' Albert Pujols | 1B | $27 million
      they dont realize that on average MLB players salary is much lower
      "The union said Friday its final average was $4,095,686, down $1,436 from $4,097,122 last year."
      www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/the-average-mlb-salary-dropped-in-2018-for-only-the-fourth-time-in-the-last-50-years/
      The average NFL salary is about 2.1 million, but the Average NFL QB makes more than that.

      +EasySnake I guess but a mobile QB like Murray, and how small he is, all play a factor in the longevity of his career. For me, it's hard to believe he's 5'11", he looks more like 5'8" and that won't hold up against 6 foot defensive tackles and defensive ends.
