"We know you have great handles, but the question is: does it translate to DB skills?" Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll tweeted to Robinson on Tuesday. "I kinda think it does."
When Robinson was in high school, Carroll reportedly recruited him to play college football at USC.
Robinson responded to Carroll's tweet with his own that read: "Coach give me a chance and I'll prove it to u."
Carroll responded with another tweet that said practice starts at 1:30 p.m. and Robinson should bring his cleats.
However, it sounds like Nate didn't make it today.
The six-year NBA veteran and three-time slam dunk champion never showed.
"He may be a little distracted with basketball, I don't know," Carroll told the Seattle Times. "If he is, he probably won't be able to do it. But if he can get focused, there's always a chance."
