    Greg Papa: 'Heard rumblings' Kyler Murray will play two sports in 2019

    I hope you're not sick of Kyler Murray news yet because you're getting another healthy dose of it.

    The dual-sport athlete may not have been playing in the National Championship game that recently took place in Santa Clara, but there are some whispers football is still in his future -- along with baseball.

    When Greg Papa made an appearance recently on 95.7 The Game's "Joe, Lo and Dibs," he talked about Murray saying he's heard a few things that he could play both sports.

    "I've heard a lot of rumblings that he may go back to Oklahoma and play next year again, which would still allow him to play for the A's in their minor league system," said Papa. "You can be pro in one sport and amateur in the other, as we know. So, he may do that."

    Yes, we do know that is a possibility -- however, we also know some other things.

    For one, his agent Scott Boras has said time and time again Murray will play baseball despite multiple NFL rumors.

    Secondly, there are contractual obligations for the Heisman Trophy winner stating he would have to repay the A's a large portion if he opts to go to the NFL instead of the baseball route.

    Former Michigan quarterback and Yankees prospect Drew Henson had some advice for Murray -- and he knows a thing or two about the crazy world of playing multiple sports at a professional level, and it's certainly something to think about. Especially when you have to consider the realities of what Minor League Baseball can introduce you to.

    Nevertheless, Henson received a six-year, $17 million contract with the Yankees and played in just a few Major League games.

    Was that worth it? We can only speculate.

    There are so many things to consider if he does play two sports. It creates more exposure to injury and little to no downtime to rest, his throwing could be impacted -- did I mention the injury aspect? 

    I know, I know -- Murray has heard it this and everything else that has gone into the decision-making process. And I'm sure he's made millions of pro's and con's lists. And while he will more than likely play baseball full-time, it makes you think.
