Of course, tons of ex-athletes say there’s just no way in hell Kyler can suit up as a QB for an NFL team and then manage to successfully hit the MLB diamond in the offseason.
But, Beltre ain’t buyin’ all that talk … telling TMZ Sports, “He can do both. Why not??”
If there’s anybody that knows the rigors of baseball … it’s Beltre — dude played 21 years in the league and logged over 11,000 at bats.
And, in his opinion, it’s clearly possible Kyler can do all of that and also help a team on the gridiron on Sundays.
“If he’s comfortable with it, he can do whatever he wants.”
Kyler’s put his name in for the NFL Draft … but still has time to decide if he wants to spurn the Oakland A’s for whatever team picks him in April.
So, stay tuned.
