San Diego State running back says God told him if he left the combine, he would play for the Seahawks

INDIANAPOLIS — Well, file this one under the strange-but-true category.

San Diego State running back Adam Muema abruptly left the NFL combine without working out on Sunday, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. That’s strange but definitely not the strangest part of the story.

According to the Union-Tribune, Muema said he was “following God” because God told him if he skipped the combine, he would play for the Seahawks. He went on to say that playing for the Seahawks is his “dream.”

“God told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace,” Muema told the Union-Tribune from the Indianapolis airport.

Muema is generally considered a late-round pick, but it’s unlikely the Seahawks would have much interest in him with a roster containing Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin.
