Deion Sanders has some advice for Kyler Murray.
Murray, the 2018 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback from Oklahoma, was already a first-round MLB draft choice by the Athletics and recently entered his name into this year’s NFL draft. Sanders, however, said Murray should focus on baseball.
Sanders spent 14 seasons in the NFL and appeared in 641 career MLB games.
"If I'm in his shoes, I'm picking up that baseball bat and I'm not looking back," Sanders said during an appearance Monday on Sportscenter.
From his own experience, Deion Sanders advises Kyler Murray to choose baseball.

Sanders said “life won't allow” Murray to play both sports because he’s a quarterback.
“For Kyler, that's tough at his position,” Sanders said. “I don't think he realizes the ridicule you go through once you declare and say, 'I'm going to be a football player.' Now people start talking about your height, your size, what you can't do. He hasn't dealt with that yet."
Sanders was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011. He made eight Pro Bowls and won two Super Bowls during his time in the NFL but said he sometimes wishes he focused more on baseball.
Sanders registered a .263 batting average over nine MLB seasons with the Yankees, Braves, Reds and Giants.
“That's just for me," Sanders said about his advice to Murray. "Sometimes, I still have regret that I didn't give (baseball) more. But you know, I got a gold (Hall of Fame) jacket in the closet. I'm straight. But I wish I would have given (baseball) more.”
Murray agreed to contract with the A's in June 2018 that paid him a $4.66 million signing bonus. Despite entering the NFL draft, Murray could still elect to play baseball professionally instead of football.
