Conversely, the No. 32 overall selection in last year's National Football League draft, Lamar Jackson, signed a four-year, $9,471,648 contract with the Ravens and quickly ascended to the starter's role in Baltimore.
Murray was the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft of the A's and, as such, has a $4.88 million contract waiting for him if he chooses to play baseball.
After posting a 3-13 record in 2018, the Cardinals own the top pick in April's draft and Kingsbury will be part of that decision after being hired as Arizona's head coach this week.
To be fair, this scenario is highly improbable that a team would give up on a quarterback after selecting him in the top-10 just a year ago, but it does present a viable possibility.
Kingsbury now has the chance to put his money where his mouth is.
He was the ninth pick in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft by the Oakland A's and was paid nearly $5 million as a bonus. After all, that's what Kingsbury said he'd do. At present, the only thing guaranteed to Murray in his baseball career is that $4.66MM bonus.

Can it get worse for the Cardinals?
ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Thursday morning that it's "not implausible" for the Cardinals to trade Rosen. At that point, they could sell Rosen to the highest bidder.
New England will have a first-round pick and two picks at the end of the second round. Kingsbury was sacked by Texas Tech after three straight losing seasons, and he was hired as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, who just so happen to have the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. However, a porous offensive line did not help Rosen's cause, as he was one of five quarterbacks to be sacked on more than 10 percent of dropbacks.
Texas Tech showed continued interest in Murray and offered him a scholarship once Kingsbury came aboard.
Rosen's rookie year didn't go well, as he ranked 32nd among qualifying starters with a 55.2 percent completion rate and last with 5.8 yards per attempt and a 26.6 QBR. Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick might be able to fix him with a few years of development.
