The Broncos were undoubtedly interested in Mayfield last year, which has me wondering if they are going to show any interest in Kyler Murray this year. The A's will retain his rights if he does choose to return to baseball in the future. "Obviously the fact that he would want to play quarterback, if he chooses the football route, is a little different than Deion or Bo or some of those guys", Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in November.
