Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James is one of the greatest basketball players in the world. He may not be ready to hang up his sneakers just yet, but if he does, he already has another job offer on the table.
Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan spoke with ESPN on Wednesday and talked about James and said he would love to have the superstar basketball player on his roster.
He even promised the small forward that they would get him the ball early and often in his career on the gridiron.
“I don’t know a whole lot about [basketball], but that big ol’ rascal can come play tight end for us, if he wants to,” Ryan said. “I think it would work out well. You look at him. He’s physical. Unbelievable. Look at the range. There’s nobody that can cover him. There’s no way you can cover him. Fast, physical. We’ll give it a shot.”
This probably wouldn’t be too strange to LeBron James as he has a storied history in football. Before he graduated from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron and was drafted first overall in the 2003 NBA Draft, he was one of the top wide receiver prospects in the country.
He was being recruited by many schools across the country, including then-Notre Dame wide receivers coach Urban Meyer. However, I am pretty sure James is worried about helping his Cavs gain momentum in the NBA Finals.
