Now that LeBron James has plenty of time on his hands with the NBA lockout showing no signs of ending any time soon, the Miami Heat star is now flirting with the idea of playing in the NFL. 

He has tweeted inquiries about the deadline for signing free agents (there is none, in his case), and he is even going back and forth with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on Twitter about possibly joining the Seahawks. Carroll tweeted a picture of a Seahawks jersey with James' name on it. 

Of course, we know it will never happen, but it's at least entertaining. Especially with the lockout dragging on for at least the first two weeks of the NBA's regular season. 

James' body type makes him most suited for an NFL tight end. But our advice for King James? Stick to your day job.
