Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James playing for the NFL's Dallas Cowboys?

This was the subject of a tweet on the Cowboys' official Twitter account on June 25: 

Fox Sports Southwest's Samanta Hyde wrote more about the development: 

"It's been one day since we learned LeBron James since we learned LeBron James has decided to opt out for the final year of his contract with the Miami Heat, and the speculation of where he will play next already has entered warp speed. 

"(The lack-of-loyalty bashing has started, too.)

"There are definitely frontrunners in the race to land LeBron. Cleveland, Houston and of course Miami are all in the discussion.

"But what about the Dallas Cowboys?

"That's exactly what its Twitter account suggested Tuesday afternoon.

"True, it almost certainly never would happen, but it's fun to think 'what if.' And this isn't the first time the possibility of LeBron playing for the NFL franchise has come up.

"During an interview in February, when asked by a reporter if he would sign with Dallas this summer (meaning the Mavericks), James quipped,'Think the Dallas Cowboys will take me?'

"Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has given his approval, saying James would excel in the NFL, and James has said he would like to play in a game 'before it's over.'" 

ESPN Dallas' Tim MacMahon spoke with Bryant last August. The Cowboys wide receiver said James has the potential to excel in the NFL: 

"Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, a passionate basketball fan, believes LeBron James would be a 'beast' in the NFL if the reigning NBA MVP made a Michael Jordan-esque midcareer decision to switch sports. 

"Asked a hypothetical question about James' potential if he opted to focus on football, Bryant enthusiastically discussed with ESPNDallas.com why he thinks the 6-foot-8, 250-pound Miami Heat star could be an impact player as an NFL tight end or receiver. 

"'That dude is just that talented,' said Bryant, who is coming off a breakout season of 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns. 'I think it would take him probably about a good two weeks to get very acquainted with football, knowing what he's supposed to do. I think that's all he'd need with his physical ability. 

"'I've seen a little bit of his highlights from high school. He's got the hands, he can run the routes, he's fast enough. He could play in this league if he put it all together.'"

James' agent Rich Paul told the Miami Heat that the superstar forward is opting out of his contract and will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, per ESPN's Chris Broussard. 

Opting out is not necessarily tantamount to James leaving Miami, Broussard adds. 

James averaged 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists in the 2013-14 NBA season. The Heat lost to the San Antonio Spurs in five games in the 2014 NBA Finals.

5 Things Dallas Cowboys Must Do to Improve Offense in 2014

There are so many different ways to quantify offensive play in football that we can look at the Dallas Cowboys’ 2013 season in pretty much any light that we want. The team finished seventh in yards per play, according to Pro Football Reference, even though their net-adjusted yards per passing attempt (YPA) ranked near the middle of the pack. Perhaps my favorite stat to analyze offensive efficiency—one that is wildly underrated—is points per drive. I’m not sure why writers con ...
