Pete Carroll is actively recruiting LeBron James

Chris Chase told you on Tuesday that LeBron James was Twitter-sharing his fantasies about playing in the NFL. Playing along is head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, Pete Carroll.

Here's the back and forth they've had on Twitter, which you can see here and here.

@PeteCarroll: hey @KingJames are you aware of what the League's rookie minimum is?

@KingJames: yeah more than what I'm making now Coach

@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: @KingJames 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

And then, Pete sent LeBron the above picture of the Seahawks "LeBron" jersey.

@KingJames: Nice!! Looks great

The only problem with signing LeBron James is that Chris Bosh is probably going to show up right behind him and say, "Hey, can I play too, guys?"

Obviously, it's all very unlikely to happen, though. You'll notice that LeBron has yet to commit to anything, either because this is just a couple of guys goofing off on Twitter, or because LeBron has to check and see if playing football for the Seahawks would be OK with Dwyane Wade. Or maybe LeBron is going to wait until after Week 9, so he doesn't have to go back to Dallas.
