After not being drafted by the Seahawks, Adam Muema’s done


Adam Muema’s dream did not come true, so he’s going to look for a new one.

The former San Diego State running back, who left the Scouting Combine under mysterious circumstances and said he had a vision of being drafted by the Seahawks is apparently now finished with football.

Muema told Joe Schad of ESPN that he was done with football, and hopes to pursue a future in either boxing or ultimate fighting.

“I don’t like being a slave to money or coaches,” Muema said. “I prefer an individual sport.”

Muema also skipped his pro day workout after ditching the combine, which probably effectively crossed him off the Seahawks’ and most other draft boards.

Those close to him are worried about his behavior, which seems a reasonable fear. If he doesn’t want to play football, fine, plenty of people do. But this just doesn’t sound like a script with a happy ending.

    Boxing or ultimate fighting. Sure, getting hit upside the head is all this guy needs

  2. joeytorontosucks says: May 13, 2014 11:35 AM

    He’s got something loose in his head. Hope the kid turns alright… Not showing up for the work interview and expecting the job classic.

    Sounds reasonable hopefully he enjoys a prosperous career at bed bath and beyond

    Someone get him some immediate help … ASAP

    Muema told Joe Schad of ESPN that he was done with football, and hopes to pursue a future in either boxing or ultimate fighting.

    But only if he can fight Shane Mosely or Bones Jones.

  6. ravenswhat says: May 13, 2014 11:44 AM

    He sounds way too stable for MMA.

  7. drsummeroff says: May 13, 2014 11:44 AM

    Yeah, maybe Boxing or Ultimate fighting isn’t a good idea for this guy. Just a hunch.

  8. scoops1 says: May 13, 2014 11:46 AM

    this guy would have been a great fit for the Vikings….He could have begun where Dimitrius Underwood left off

    Who cares, there’s still1000 more underrated players to choose from, football is bout going to disappear because of him right?

  10. metrocritical says: May 13, 2014 11:51 AM

    This sounds like Titus Young 2.0. Hopefully, someone who cares will step up and help the guy out before something regrettable happens.

  11. wtfchiefs says: May 13, 2014 11:51 AM

    Makes sense because there is no money or coaching in boxing and MMA.

  12. grantsbuds says: May 13, 2014 11:52 AM

    Is he related to Titus Young?
    Let’s hope not.

  13. snipedanglecelly13 says: May 13, 2014 11:54 AM

    So he doesn’t get what he wants and just quits….sounds like a little 5 year old to me

  14. nfl4days says: May 13, 2014 11:54 AM

    Instead he would rather slave for agents and managers.

  15. upperdecker19 says: May 13, 2014 11:54 AM

    Sounds like he knows what he’s doing to me….

    Titus Young

  16. Go-Hawks! says: May 13, 2014 11:54 AM

    Even if he wanted to keep playing football, he wouldn’t find any success in the NFL. He is a “me first” guy. It can work for a little while, if you have the talent of Randy Moss or Terrell Owens, but if you aren’t great at your position then you end up just screwing the team.

    I’m glad he’s not a Seahawk.

  17. raiderufan says: May 13, 2014 11:58 AM

    Anyone ask him why god would tell him that and then not do it? And lead him down a path away from it?

    Doesn’t like being a slave to coaches and money? Hahaha the irony is thick with this one!

  18. livenbreathefootball says: May 13, 2014 12:00 PM

    Really does not want to be bound to anyone so prefers boxing? Fight promoters and managers take big cuts. Plus you get hit upside the head.

    This kid is getting bad advice.

  19. longsufferingkcfan says: May 13, 2014 12:09 PM

    Go pursue a career in boxing and MMA, because the managers and promoters in those sports are so well known for their integrity…

  20. tlippert says: May 13, 2014 12:19 PM

    So he obviously marches to a different beat of the drum…who cares? Everyone’s so harsh on him, he clearly doesn’t have the required passion for the game and he’s fine with that and the fact that numerous grown men on here aren’t is somewhat strange to me.

  21. djshnooks says: May 13, 2014 12:20 PM

    He finally realized there is no God?

    Poor kid needs help.

  22. Carl Brutananadilewski says: May 13, 2014 12:24 PM

    To quote LT in The Water Boy, “Which leads me to my next point. Dont. Smoke. Crack.”

  23. jimmyt says: May 13, 2014 12:27 PM

    They didn’t draft him huh? I guess God lied to him then.

  24. nflofficeadmin says: May 13, 2014 12:29 PM


  25. 1phillyphan says: May 13, 2014 12:46 PM

    i don’t understand all the negative comments…its possible ( and it has happened many times before) that he just doesn’t want to play football. he got a free ride thru college, so maybe he played football in college for that free ride. maybe he is a Seahawks fan and wanted to play for only them. He has skills, If he loved playing the game. He could still play. If not NFL the CFL would take him. Why did Barry Sanders stop playing in the prime of his career? Why did Jim brown want to act over playing Football….they just lost their love for the game. I wish him well..

  26. bennyb82 says: May 13, 2014 12:48 PM

    Someone should contact SDSU and try to get him back to school to finish his degree…although it sounds like it might be tough to get through to him.

  27. ariani1985 says: May 13, 2014 12:48 PM

    Think he would enjoy the clown music in green Bay.

  28. cpo187 says: May 13, 2014 12:51 PM

    Taking the Titus Young approach to the NFL there eh?

  29. skinsfan91 says: May 13, 2014 12:59 PM

    I really hope he doesn’t think he can just hop into boxing or mma without any experience.

  30. damcmp says: May 13, 2014 1:08 PM

    Or trainers(Coaches) to teach him the fundamentals…unless he learned those in a vision

  31. wishingtonredslur says: May 13, 2014 1:13 PM

    If he wants to fight, lay off and let him.

  32. johnqlunchbox says: May 13, 2014 1:27 PM

    Sounds like this “special snowflake” needs a hug and some time with therapy dogs. Quick, somebody give him a trophy and a “participation ribbon”!

  33. haterrus says: May 13, 2014 1:33 PM

    fred sanford is saying You big DUMMY

  34. citizenstrange says: May 13, 2014 3:12 PM

    I think God will end up telling him to push a broom somewhere.

  35. harrisonhits2 says: May 13, 2014 3:17 PM

    Its easy to make fun of something like this.

    Then I think back on some of the stupid things I did when I was young and I don’t feel so holier than thou. I would say that applies to most of the people making jokes here.

  36. seaeagle707 says: May 13, 2014 4:39 PM

    He should be thankful his dream didn’t come true. With that “Me, Me, Me” attitude he would’ve found himself on a one-way flight out of SeaTac heading home, come August. With Pete and John, humbleness is a virtue to be applauded. The lack of it is a mortal sin to be avoided.

  37. stopthehate15bowdown says: May 13, 2014 10:25 PM

    Another winning running back from SDSU. Marshall Faulk where o where have you gone?

  38. mathomp3 says: May 14, 2014 9:08 AM

    Glad he us putting that college education to good use…

  39. vikingferd says: May 14, 2014 12:52 PM

    Great…..another former fooball player who’ll be suing someone for his concussed brain.
