Ex-NBA player Nate Robinson trying out as DB with Seahawks

It is not unusual to see some athletes go between professional sports and some have done it pretty well in the past. It looks like former NBA player Nate Robinson is trying to do just that with the Seattle Seahawks.

Mark Maske of The Washington Post reported that Robinson is currently in Seattle and is looking to make the roster as a defensive back. Robinson played a season of football with the Washington Huskies in 2002.

During that season with the Huskies, Robinson played in all 13 games at cornerback and started the final six before dropping the sport and focusing on basketball. The Seattle native played both sports in high school at Rainier Beach High and totaled 1,700 total yards and 21 touchdowns in his senior year.

Robinson was drafted 21st overall in the 2005 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks and has played all over the league in his 11-year career. He averaged 11 points a game during his career.

Last year, Nate Robinson had a short stint with the New Orleans Pelicans before signing with Hapoel Tel Aviv in March and averaging 16.2 points in 14 games.

It would certainly be interesting to see what the three-time NBA Dunk Contest champion could do with the Legion of Boom.
