Is Pete Carroll recruiting LeBron James?
Since LeBron James is looking, Pete Carroll is offering up a spot on the team.
The Seahawks head coach sent James this message on Thursday via Twitter: “Hey @KingJames are you aware of what the League’s rookie minimum is?”
“Yeah more than what I’m making now Coach,” replied James.
The running joke started Tuesday when James sent a message to 710 ESPN Seattle’s John Clayton via Twitter asking, “When is the deadline for a team to sign a free agent?”
Since then, James, an all-state wide receiver in high school, has also put the call out to the Cowboys, Dolphins, Browns, Lions, 49ers, and really any other team.
Carroll’s crew went so far as to mock up a Seahawks jersey for the restless James.
Check out the rest of the Twitter exchange:
@PeteCarroll: I kinda think of you as a touchdown maker but is it true you think of yourself as a pass rusher?
@KingJames: TD maker for sure!
@PeteCarroll: I like it! maybe you should head over to #TheU & I’ll set up a little workout for you to catch a few balls… just ask for BC
