The events surrounding Adam Muema since the NFL Combine have been very strange.
First, he left the Combine because he said that God told him that if he left, he would be drafted by the Seahawks. Then, the people closest to him could not locate him.
Now he has been found in the Fort Lauderdale Airport after three days.
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.
At this point, I am far more concerned with his health, well being, and mental state than I am if he will be drafted in the NFL by the Seahawks or anyone else. I hope that he can bounce back from all this and good thing he is ok.
