Faith in God? Or the Seattle Seahawks?

A seminary colleague posted this from FoxSports:

Adam Muema came all the way to Indianapolis only to skip workouts at the last minute.
Why, you ask?
Well, the running back from San Diego State had a religious reason for leaving LucasOil Stadium on Sunday. He said he was "following God," who told him that if he skipped workouts, he'd end up playing for the Seattle Seahawks, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Playing for the birds is Muema's dream and apparently, every NFL team is aware of that.
"Can't go wrong with God," he said.
So, instead of working out for NFL scouts on Sunday, Muema caught a flight and headed back to San Diego. He can still get his day in front of NFL personnel at the San Diego State pro day in March.
"(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace," Muema said.
Well, all right then.
I don't think this is smart. What if the Seahawks don't ever sign him? Wouldn't this qualify as "putting the Lord God to the test" (Deut. 6:16)?
