NBA Player Nate Robinson Invited to Seahawks Training Camp
Lil Nate was a decent cornerback at the University of Washington and has hinted he might like to try out in the NFL while the NBA is going through their lockout.
There is one team willing to give Nate a look, the Seattle Seahawks.
Here are the details.
“We know you have great handles, but the question is: does it translate to DB skills?” Carroll said to Robinson, via Twitter. “I kinda think it does.”
Robinson said via Twitter that he was ready to show Carroll he still had some football skills. “Coach give me a chance and I’ll prove it to u,” he said.
Carroll said practice started at 1:30 p.m., and requested Robinson bring his cleats. Practice came and went without an appearance from Robinson.
“He may be a little distracted with basketball, I don’t know,” Carroll said afterward. “If he is, he probably won’t be able to do it. But if he can get focused, there’s always a chance.”
The way Pete Carroll has been spending free agent money he might offer Nate a 5 years 40 million deal with 25 million guaranteed just if Nate showed up.
But I digress.
