Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray said on the NFL Network that he expects to decide on whether or not he’ll pursue an MLB or NFL career “Soon. Very Soon.”
“Right now I’m just working out,” Murray said, via NFL.com. “I’m glad to be here at the Super Bowl. … For me, I’m just taking it one day at a time. And that’s what I’m doing right now.”
Murray mentioned that it’s not fair to call him and Baker Mayfield “system” quarterbacks because of the offense they ran at Oklahoma.
“I don’t think there’s the whole system joke or whatever, I don’t think you can say that at all. I don’t think you can just put a kid in at quarterback and put up the numbers that me and Baker put up. It’s not fair to say,” Murray said. “I’m not trying to sound cocky or anything. I just think it’s two special football players and special kids that put the time in, put the work in … and just grinded. The results obviously show for themselves.”
Ohio State DE Nick Bosa said Friday that he’s healthy and planning to be a full participant at the Combine after undergoing core muscle surgery last year.
“It was definitely one of the harder things I’ve went through in my life, just getting injured in the year that I was getting ready to blow it all out and have a really fun year,” Bosa said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “But it’s past me now and I have to look forward.”
NFLPA president DeMaurice Smith said there haven’t been any serious discussions with the NFL about a CBA extension up to this point.
“There really aren’t any,” Smith said, via ESPN.com. “Right now, you have two sides. We have a number of years until the collective bargaining agreement is up. We might have conversations with the league, but, up to this point, nothing substantial.”
The Player’s Union has begun telling players that they need to be prepared for a potential lockout after the 2020 season.
Smith said they’re preparing players for the possibility, but this doesn’t mean that a lockout is inevitable.
“Look, the best preparation for a war is when you never have to fight,” Smith said. “But it doesn’t mean you don’t have to prepare for one.”
