The former NBA guard and dunk contest champion looks to set his sights on the field instead of the court. Nate Robinson, 32, tried out for the Seattle Seahawks on Monday.

Robinson had been playing professional basketball in Israel as of late, but is now set to try to make an NFL roster.

"The biggest challenge is probably all the haters, everybody counting me out, somebody not really giving me the opportunity," Robinson said. "That's what I think the biggest challenge will be, getting somebody to give me that chance. If somebody gives me that chance, I know they'll fall in love with the fierce competitor that I am because I catch on quick. Once I do that, then the sky's the limit. I don't know. It seems like they wouldn't want me to be the first one to do something like this. That's a huge challenge."

Robinson had been a highly touted football prospect while in high school and received a football scholarship from the University of Washington before deciding to commit to basketball.

Do you think Robinson has a chance to play in the NFL?
