Former Clipper Nate Robinson Works Out for Seahawks

Former Clippers point guard Nate Robinson got a chance to show the Seahawks coaching staff if he still has what it takes to play in the NFL. Robinson is an 11 year NBA veteran, and played 9 games for the Clippers during the 2014-15 season, averaging 5.1 points in 11.5 minutes per game. Since his time with the Clippers, he has played in just two NBA games, last season with the New Orleans Pelicans.

The last time Robinson played competitive football was his freshman year at the University of Washington, back when the Clippers best players were named Elton Brand and Lamar Odom. The played in all 13 games that year, starting the final 6 at cornerback. Prior to college, Robinson was a 3 sport star at Rainier Beach High School, playing basketball, football, and running track.

Even though he is a talented athlete, and was a great football player, after 13 years away from the sport, the odds are slim that he would be able to make it to the NFL. With that said, the opportunity is there, and if he can show the team enough, he might just be an NFL player.

Robinson, a big Seahawks fan and one-time 12 Flag raiser, was given that opportunity to show what he can do on Monday. Where things go from there remains to be seen. -
