Heisman Trophy winner and Oakland A’s prospect Kyler Murray could find a way to play both baseball — and football — next season, according 95.7 The Game’s Greg Papa.

Papa laid out that scenario in a Tuesday morning appearance on “Joe, Lo & Dibs.”

“I’ve talked to you guys all year about Kyler Murray and how much I liked him,” Papa said on 95.7 The Game. “His performance in the Orange Bowl against Alabama in the Orange Bowl really bothered me. He just looked, he looked overmatched.”

“He looked small. I mean, really small. He has to declare, I think, in a week’s — by the start of next week, I think the date is January 14 if he’s eligible for the draft.”

“I’ve also heard a lot of rumblings that he may go back to Oklahoma and play next year again, which would still allow him to play for the A’s in their minor league system. You can be pro in one sport and amateur in the other, as we know. So, he may do that.”
