Mike Freeman of B/R writes that while Nate Robinson catching on with an NFL team after years in the NBA would be a great story, “it will never happen.”
An assistant coach points to two main issues for Robinson. The first of which is the fact that there’s no natural position for him.
“Maybe running back,” the coach told Freeman, “but that’s questionable. He can’t play wide receiver. He can’t play quarterback. He can’t play defensive back. Maybe kick returner, maybe. But I’m not certain where he plays.”
The other issue for Robinson, according to this coach, is Robinson’s age. He’s currently 32 years old, which can be an issue for proven NFL players, let alone someone trying to break into the league.

Titans WR Justin Hunter admitted that he’ll need to step up his game this summer in order to secure a roster spot, due to the level of competition at the receiver position.
“There’s another level,’’ Hunter said, via TitansOnline.com. “I am definitely going to have to bring it in training camp. There’s a lot of competition, a lot of people fighting for positions and things like that. You can’t slack off because another guy is coming for your spot. I have to keep grinding.”
