Newly retired Major League Baseball star Adrian Beltre would like to see Kyler Murray become a two-sport star.
"He can do both," Beltre said. "Why not?"
Per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, there is "no possibility" Murray would play football and baseball at the same time due to the demands of trying to learn and play quarterback in the NFL.
Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who played both sports during his career, told SportsCenter's Cari Champion that he would play baseball if he was in Murray's shoes:
Murray took the first step toward starting a football career Monday by declaring for the 2019 NFL draft. It doesn't guarantee he's going to opt out of his contract with the Oakland Athletics, who made him the ninth overall pick in last year's draft.
The next step for Murray will come next month when he has to decide between reporting to Oakland's spring training in Arizona on Feb. 15 or attend the NFL Scouting Combine on Feb. 26.
