Just when I thought that I had seen everything, a pro prospect decides to leave the NFL Combine because of God. Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema left on Sunday after speaking with God, who told Muema he’d be drafted by the Seattle Seahawks if he didn’t work out.
The following according to Michael Gehlken of UTSanDiego.com:
Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema left the NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday without working out, citing religious reasons.
Running backs competed in afternoon drills at Lucas Oil Stadium. Muema, the fourth leading rusher in Aztecs history, did not participate. 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.
But what exactly did God tell Muema?
“(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace,” he said.
So there you have it, the first player I can recall leaving one of the most important days of his life because of God.
In all honesty, I’d do whatever it took right now to play for the Seattle Seahawks, so I can’t blame Muema for his decision.
