Possible reason why Cardinals are saying they are undecided

GFAN52 : 4/16/2019 5:38 pm
on making Murray the obvious pick now.

Quote:
Cardinals G.M. Steve Keim on Tuesday claimed that a report that agent Erik Burkhardt accompanied quarterback Kyler Murray for a visit to the team was “false.” And, frankly, I have very good reason to believe that this contention is false. Which makes me very suspicious that the Cards are trying to throw as much dirt as they can on what would be evidence that the Cardinals have settled on Murray, and that they’re actively negotiating a contract with Burkhardt.

There’s good reason for the Cardinals to negotiate with Burkhardt, who also represents Cardinals coach Kliff Klingsbury. If the Cardinals want to be sure that Murray doesn’t ditch football for baseball either now or within the next four years, the Cardinals could tell Murray he won’t be the pick unless the simultaneously signs a deal with a Jameis Winston-style no-baseball clause.

Hence the possible no-baseball clause.
If he decides to go to baseball it means he failed as an NFL QB

So it really is a moot point. Guy's love is football and if he warrants a second contract he won't make even close to that at baseball at that point.

The no baseball is only for that contract as long as they don't cut him. It is so if he struggles the first year or doesn't like it that he doesn't bounce for baseball where he is a top draft pick also.
