Nate Robinson Wants to Play in the NFL (VIDEO)

by March 10, 2016

Nate Robinson was once a two-sport star at the University of Washington, a point guard on the hoops team and a cornerback on the football team—he had two picks and 30+ tackles his freshman season, starting almost half the team’s games. After becoming a first-round pick in the NBA, he gave up football. But after sitting out most of this season as a free agent, his basketball career might be over. Which has Nate Rob thinking… what about the NFL?

In the video above, Robinson describes his serious desire to play in the NFL, and he’s got co-signs from NFL tight end Marcedes Lewis and NBA stars like Jamal Crawford and Glen “Big Baby” Davis among others. He’s still only 5-9, 180 pounds, but when has that ever stopped him before? Peep the video above and let us know if you think the 3-time Dunk Champion could seriously compete in the NFL in the comments section below.
