Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema made the interesting choice to leave the NFL Combine on Sunday for “religious reasons.”

Muema told the San Diego Union Tribune that God had told him to leave before the workouts. If he left before the drills, he said God had promised that he would play for the Seattle Seahawks, which has always been his dream.

He said, “[God] told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace,” and “Can’t go wrong with God.” He claims to communicate to God through numbers.

Muema is known to be a deeply religious person and often quotes scripture on his Twitter account. He has also made many references to someone claiming to be the second coming of Christ.

His latest tweet defends his position in light of the criticism he is receiving.

He rushed 256 times for 1,244 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013. He will have another chance to show off his skills to NFL scouts at San Diego State’s pro day in March.
