Over the past week, nearly all of the NFL’s top prospects have been in Indiana for the league’s Scouting Combine. It’s a chance for coaches, executives, and other decision-makers to check out what players have to offer in terms of speed and ability before the official NFL draft this coming May.
But Adam Muema, a running back from San Diego State University, didn’t stick around for the Combine. He arrived, but then left on Sunday (without working out) for an intriguing reason:
He said he was “following God,” who told him if he missed workouts, he’d play for the Seattle Seahawks.
Playing for Seattle is his “dream,” Muema said. NFL teams are aware of the decision.
“Can’t go wrong with God,” Muema said.
“(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace,” he said.
Funny how God didn’t tell him to break any records while his future bosses were watching…
