I would love to see the guy give it a shot to play both, but I just don't see how its possible as a QB



A's don't want him to play both.  If he does.  He has to choose which to play at the beginning of the football season since it overlaps with the end of baseball and the postseason.  That's why they had a clause stating he could only play college football one season.  Same clause but towards the MLB for Wilson and Winston.

He's pretty small.  If he'd get drafted in the first two rounds, football could be play...

Currently he's well-known to be 5'9" and around 185 lbs.  Putting him 2 full inches and 30 lbs away from the second smallest QB in Russell Wilson.  Wilson's hands are much larger however.  If he is picked around pick 54 or after, his 4 year NFL deal would equal out to less than just his MLB signing bonus.  I think this is nothing more than a cash grab overall.  What football team will want him knowing how he just bent the A's over a barrel after they gave him something they didn't need to.  Is it a stretch to expect him to hold out on his rookie deal?  His father also was sued by the Brewers for a breach for signing, playing a year in the minors, then deciding to quit to go to college.  He didn't have the no NFL clause however.
