His story is strange from almost the start. Adam Muema and his odd tale begun in February when he abandoned the NFL combine because god told him he would be drafted by the super bowl champion Seattle Seahawks if he left.
Once Mr. Irrelevant was selected, ending the 2014 NFL draft, Muema’s name had yet to have been called and he went undrafted. Thus far, the San Diego State running back who had 1,244 yards and 15 touchdowns this past season had yet to have been even signed as an undrafted free agent.
So he quit.
He quit football, that is. Citing that he does not want to be “a slave to money or coaches,” Muema has set his sights to compete in MMA or boxing. “I prefer an individual sport,” Muema said, as he went on vacation and answered no texts, calls, nor voice mails during the NFL Draft, apparently having no concern of his draft status.
Projected as an 4th to 7th round pick by the draft advisory board, Muema strangely disappeared from the combine in Indianapolis without working out at all. Days later, Muema resurfaced explaining that he had been worshipping locally. Muema then explained that according to his numerology faith, God told him that the Seahawks would draft him had he skipped the combine all together.
Calls to God to discuss thoughts on Muema’s potential as an MMA fighter or boxer went unanswered.
