On Tuesday, LeBron James made the NFL aware that hes available by tweeting at ESPN reporter John Clayton, When is the deadline for a team to sign a free agent? Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll called LeBron on his apparent bluff by tweeting, Hey @KingJames are you aware of what the Leagues rookie minimum is? And the free-agent flirtation was on. Yeah, more than what Im making now Coach, LeBron replied. So what position would LeBron play as a football player? I kinda think of you as a touchdown maker but is it true you think of yourself as a pass rusher? Carroll asked. LeBron is built like a tight end, but he could probably bring a fierce rush from the defensive end position too. TD maker for sure! LeBron said. So Carroll did what any coach would do when one of the best athletes in the world shows interest in joining his team: He tried to set up a tryout. I like it! maybe you should head over to #TheU & Ill set up a little workout for you to catch a few balls, Carroll tweeted But LeBron wants to shop himself around. Cowboys, Dolphins, Browns, Lions, 49ers
..27 more teams. Who? he tweeted Wednesday night. Source: Seattle Post Intelligencer

LeBron James took his talents to Liverpool on Friday—and finally got his hands on a championship trophy.

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James and Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll have been tossing playful messages back and forth on Twitter. LeBron digs football and wouldn’t mind being an NFL star in another life.
But as the NBA lockout continues, perhaps that life could be this one?
No. Of course not. But it’s fun to think about.

Additionally, we have a heated debate about Ryan Mathews' MVP candidacy (and advanced statistics), while also discussing Tim Tebow and LeBron James. So sit back and do whatever the hell you do while listening to this amazing weekly NFL podcast.
Oh, that LeBron James. First, he playfully nudges ESPN's John Clayton about finding him an NFL gig, and now he's got Seahawks coach Pete Carroll "jokingly" courting him. From the Sporting News:
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday tweeted James: “are you aware of what the league’s rookie minimum is?”
And like that a recruiting pitch was on....
Amar'e Stoudemire believes teammate Carmelo Anthony is more of a clutch late-game scorer and would take him on his team over LeBron James.
(When the NBA resumes play, the league will find itself dealing with a new collective-bargaining agreement, one that could impact how the Heat do business going forward. This is the fourth in a series of evaluations of such aspects.)
The issue: The just-expired CBA had three primary exceptions that allowed teams to exceed the salary cap when it came to veteran talent: the mid-level...
Bye weeks are great for football teams, especially banged up and really young teams. The Seahawks are both of those things, so it’s safe to say that this week is great for the Seahawks. But bye weeks are really bad for sports writers, and consequently they’re really bad for fans. With no football to cover, writers get desperate and type up stories that quite frankly do not deserve...
You know Lebron, he likes attention, BUT (there’s always a but) this is a very intriguing possibility. The fact of the matter is; the season is already 5 weeks in and he doesn’t have enough time to really learn the game. However, (there’s always a however) the publicity, marketing, etc. would go through the roof for a team that signed Lebron for a couple months assuming...
