Near the end of the 2013 season, running back Willis McGahee said that he wanted to play four more years in the NFL but the interest hasn’t been reciprocated this season.

McGahee hasn’t played for anyone since wrapping up with the Browns last year, which is a pretty good sign that the 33-year-old has a slim chance of realizing that dream. He may not be finished with a career in professional sports, though.

The National Rugby Football League announced this week that McGahee would be attending their 2015 combine in January as the league prepares for its first season next summer. McGahee confirmed that he’d be taking part on Twitter and also shared some video of the workouts he’s doing to prepare.

We’re not well versed enough in the sport of rugby to handicap McGahee’s chances of succeeding in his attempt to move into a different sport, but certainly wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor.
