Nate Robinson wants an NFL tryout

He's 5'9", super quick and athletic, but can he tackle? He has a 43.5 inch vertical jump, he's 27 years old, he weighs in at 180 pounds, but how are his zone instincts? The Oklahoma City Thunder's Nate Robinson is toying with the idea of playing in the NFL if the NBA lockout drags on. Why not? He's about the same size as D.J. Moore and he has an inch on Tim Jennings, so his size wouldn't be a deterrent for Jerry Angelo.

He was recruited to play football at the University of Washington, and he had 2 interceptions in his lone season on the gridiron before quitting to concentrate on hoops. What do you think Bears fans? Can we add him to the want list?
