Given the way he whines and pouts when someone touches him on a basketball court, I can't imagine the way he'd react if someone threw high over the middle and he was cut in half by a safety going up for the catch.
Does he have the physical talent to do it? Yes. I just don't think he'd want to take the hits that go with it. They talked about how "physical" the Bulls were being with him the other night on the broadcast (that's probably the most NBA I've watched in 5+ years), and that was foreplay compared to what he'd probably get in the NFL.
