Nate was signed by the Lions as a free agent in January 2017.
2014-2016: Nate began his pro career as an undrafted free agent signing of the Seattle Seahawks in 2014. Following training camp, he spent the entire season on the team’s practice squad. In 2015, he signed with the Arizona Cardinals and was released in training camp. In February 2016, he was signed by the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League and eventually made his way to the CFL as a member of the Montreal Alouettes in June. He was placed on the Als practice roster coming out of training camp and released in August.
2010-2013: After beginning his colligate days as a defensive lineman, the Atlanta native moved to the offensive side of the ball at North Carolina A&T in his sophomore season and went on to be a three-year starter. Able to play both guard and tackle, he appeared in 38 games over four years for the Aggies.
Nate majored in Liberal Studies during his time at North Carolina A&T. His fondest memory on the football field was making a defensive lineman from Florida A&M slam his helmet down in frustration and quit during a game in his senior season with the Aggies. A lover of the DC universe, Nate lists Batman vs. Superman as his favourite film. In terms of television, nothing compares to Breaking Bad in Nate’s mind. When he isn’t pushing bodies around on the offensive line, you will find Nate hanging out with his dog or in the gym. He lists his family as his biggest fans and makes his offseason home in Atlanta, GA.
