Did God ruin this man's NFL chances?

God gave up on Adam Muema and now Adam Muema is giving up on football.

The former San Diego State running back was expected to be taken in the lower round of the recent NFl draft, or have been picked up by a team as an undrafted free agent after being an important player for the Aztecs during his time there.

Then things went a bit wrong for Muema. He left the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis back in March after God apparently came to him and said that he would become a member of the Seattle Seahawks organization if he left the event.

So sure was Muema that he would join the Super Bowl winners that he put the team in his Twitter bio and gave himself a roster number, 6.

Well the draft has been and gone, and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl MVP did not find his name called out for Pete Carroll's side - or any other team for that matter - nor was he picked up afterwards for a training camp.

"Can't go wrong with God," Muema said after making his decision, well apparently you can't get to the NFL either.

So what's Muema going to do now he's turned his back on pro football, you've guessed it...boxing or UFC. Because what's more Christian than punching your fellow man repeatedly in the face.

“I don’t like being a slave to money or coaches,” Muema told ESPN’s Joe Schad. “I prefer an individual sport.”

Divine intervention...not all it's cracked up to be.
