Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema left the NFL combine in February because God supposedly told him he would get his wish of being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks by doing so.
Muema then disappeared for four days after returning to Florida upon his departure from the combine. He spent those days at the airport, also because God told him to.
Thursday was San Diego State’s Pro Day for scouts and NFL front office types to come to campus and get another look at NFL prospects and players that may not have been invited to the combine. Muema was scheduled to take part in the activities.
According to Bob Lawrence of ABC 10 News in San Diego, Muema was a no-show for the workouts.
If he wants to be an NFL football player he sure has an unusual way of trying to show it. Muema rushed for 1,244 yards and 15 touchdowns for the Aztecs last season. However, any NFL team has to have serious reservations about even offering him a free agent contract at this point.
If Muema is willing to walk away from the combine and his Pro Day workouts without performing due to his legitimate belief that God told him not to, that’s his own prerogative. However, NFL teams have to ask the question whether he would do the same before a playoff game or even the Super Bowl because God once again asked him to leave. It makes trusting that he would be committed to whichever organization takes a chance on him a difficult idea to stomach.
