Many have said that LeBron James could have been the best tight end to ever play in the NFL. Buffalo Bills head coach, Rex Ryan, wants to see the proof.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday, per ESPN.com’s Mike Rodak, Ryan said he doesn’t “know a whole lot about [basketball], but that big ol’ rascal [James] can come play tight end for us, if he wants to.”
Ryan said he believes James would be able to make an easy transition back to the gridiron.
“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.”
The 31-year-old has not played any organized football since his junior year in high school, where he was an All-State player as a sophomore, recruited by the likes of Notre Dame.
