Adam Muema left the NFL Combine without working out last weekend. The former San Diego State running back left the combine because he said that God told him if he did, he would be drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. Amazingly, the story gets weirder from there.
After leaving the combine, Muema disappeared for a few days. No one heard from him again until Thursday when he called a friend to pick him up at the airport. From U-T San Diego:
In a phone interview with the U-T Friday morning, Corey Nelson, a linebacker from Oklahoma who has been training with Muema in Florida since January, said Muema called him on Thursday afternoon asking for a ride from the airport.
Nelson said Muema was still wearing his NFL combine gear when he got into the car. When asked to describe Muema’s demeanor on Thursday, Nelson said the running back seemed “focused, cheerful and very wise.”
“He said he was at the airport for three days straight,” Nelson said. “He was telling me when I picked him up that God told him to stay at the airport and don’t do anything, just stay there. That’s what he did for three days straight.”
This is probably not the end of this story.
