A’s post funny tweet about nervously watching Kyler Murray play football

Kyler Murray is playing football for the Oklahoma Sooners this year, but he’s already signed a huge contract to play for the Oakland Athletics after this season.

The two-sport star was at home Saturday playing against UCLA, which means he was dodging and weaving around some big bodies on the gridiron.

As Murray did his thing, the A’s could only hope and pray that their young prospect stays healthy.

They used humor to get that message across on Twitter.

Given the fact that the contract Oakland and Murray agreed to contains roughly $5 million guaranteed, it’s not hard to understand why the team would be a bit nervous.
