It's still unclear if Murray will leave camp to attend the combine, but a source told Slusser he is leaning towards football. Some scouts and teams reportedly see him as a first-round pick.

But his agent, Scott Boras, told ESPN on Wednesday night that Murray "has a baseball contract".

The 49ers and the Raiders hold the second and fourth overall picks, respectively, so if Murray were to go at the very top of the draft, that could make prospects available to both Bay Area teams that wouldn't have been otherwise. Some pundits have him as a possible first-round pick. "I know he's signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player, and I would take him with the first pick".

Four flu-related deaths in Medina County this season
Two more flu deaths in San Diego County have brought this season's death toll to 11, county health officials announced Wednesday. He said children were not among the flu fatalities so far and they also do not include any pregnant women.

If Murray choses football and does not play baseball, he would have to pay back his signing bonus to the A's, who would retain Murray's draft rights if he played in the NFL.

According to a source, Murray declaring for the draft is not considered to be contractually significant.

Good news, Kliff: You have the first pick.

Wawrinka comments on Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, Novak Djokovic's dominance
Top-ranked Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep , as expected, have been given the No. 1 seedings for next week's Australian Open . Andy Murray will make his return to the Australian Open with a tough first-round match against Roberto Bautista Agut .

Declaring for the draft does not guarantee that Murray, an outfielder Oakland selected ninth overall, will decide to reject his $4.66 million deal with the A's outright, but it certainly increases the chances that Oklahoma's star quarterback will decide to go pro in football rather than baseball.

Fast forward less than three months, and Kingsbury is now the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, who happen to own the first pick in the draft.

To be fair, this scenario is highly improbable that a team would give up on a quarterback after selecting him in the top-10 just a year ago, but it does present a viable possibility. Baseball might have better long-term value, but the glitz, glamour and money that come with being the No. 1 pick in the National Football League draft might be too much to resist.
