Former NBA PG Nate Robinson To Try Out For The Seattle Seahawks
Former NBA point guard Nate Robinson stated earlier this year that he wanted to pursue an NFL career, and on Monday he was that much closer to pursing his dream.
The 32-year-old Robinson only played in two regular season games this year for the New Orleans Pelicans, and not too many other teams are calling for his services. So the NFL may be his last shot to make it back in a major professional sports league.
Nate Robinson has a tryout with the Seattle Seahawks today. Robinson is working out as a cornerback.

Nate is a Seattle native who last played football at the University of Washington in 2002, playing all 13 games at cornerback.
Update: The Seattle Seahawks decided not to sign Nate, but will keep an eye on him for future endeavors.
Doesn’t sound like the #Seahawks will be signing local star PG/DB Nate Robinson — today. But… they’ll keep in contact for down the road.
