NFL star Jarryd Hayne, who quit National Football League, is now being speculated to return to the game once again. Dallas Cowboys has confirmed that Hayne will represent Australian football again.
Australian Hayne, 27, surprised the world by grabbing San Francisco 49ers final roster earlier in 2016. He achieved it as a running back and special teamer. According to Sporting News, Hayne had a gritty running style that proved his capabilities.
Dallas Cowboys understood that its natural athlete is challenging. The preseason audience was thrilled by his performance as a runner and returner. He recorded 175 rushing yards in four games on 25 carriers.
Hayne announced his retirementFrom NFL in June and he headed towards pursuing his passion rugby. The player has been playing for the National Rugby League for a long time for Paramatta Eels from 2006 to 2014.
“I am retiring from the NFL because the Fiji Rugby Sevens team reached out to me about the opportunity to join the team for the upcoming Olympics, and I simply could not pass that chance up,” Hayne stated. “The Olympics has been something I have admired since I was a little boy, and it is an opportunity I feel very similar to me joining the NFL.”
Dallas Cowboys analyst Bryan Broaddus took to twitter to confirm on Saturday that it may consider Hayne as an option for assisting the franchises.
Hayne is heading towards his further dream of representing the Fiji Rugby Sevens in the Rio Olympics 2016.
Incredible 12months. Thank god for the courage he gave me. And the @49ers an the fans for non stop support. Not only in San Fransisco but across the world, especially down under. I could never imagine the last 12months an now to be in a position to try out for the Olympics is yet another childhood dream. Never stop chasing Dreams. Never let the fire burn inside of you. It's not always easy. But it's always worth it. #4everThankful #38
