At 5-foot-9 and 180-pounds, Nate Robinson was one of the most electric small guys to play in the NBA in recent years. At 32-years old the three-time NBA slam dunk champion only played in two games this season with the New Orleans Pelicans as his career in the NBA is coming to a close. However, when one door closes, another one opens and this is very much so the case for Robinson. In his college years, Nate played defensive back at the University of Washington in 2002 and even got 2 interceptions in the 13 games he played. According to Master Tesfatsion and Mark Maske of The Washington Post, Robinson will be making a comeback in the game of football as he plans on trying out for the Seattle Seahawks this Monday. It is reported that Robinson will be trying out for the same position that he played during college and the Seahawks will keep an eye out for him.
