Seattle Seahawks Get Rejected By Rugby Star Greg Inglis

According to the Australian publication Sunday Herald Sun the Seattle Seahawks took a covert Pete Carroll approach to try and lure Greg Inglis to the NFL, only this time they didn’t snag their prize.

The report notes that it wasn’t necessarily the team that approached, but the timing of the approach.

Here is a main excerpt from the article, you can read the entire thing here.

Greg’s an elite athlete and an outstanding talent,” he said yesterday on SEN.

“And if ever there was a decision that came out of the Inglis camp that said he was legitimate and serious about wanting to explore a conversation about changing his career path within sport, we would want to be at the front of what I would imagine would be a very long queue.

“There’s no offer, it’s very preliminary.”

Gainey has quashed fears his client was set to follow Israel Folau’s lead and abandon the NRL.

The assurance came as the Sunday Herald Sun learned Inglis last week rejected a secret approach from American NFL outfit the Seattle Seahawks.

“The only way Greg would consider AFL is if he was told to leave Melbourne and he became a free agent,” Gainey said.
“Greg’s prime focus is to stay with the Storm. It’s not anything like the situations with Karmichael or Israel Folau, they were off-contract, Greg is not.”
