Free agent FB Michael Robinson believes his career is likely over.
Robinson turned 31 in February, and wasn't re-signed by the Seahawks. "I still love Sundays," Robinson said. "Monday through Saturday gets difficult." Coach Pete Carroll said earlier this month that he had "talked to Robinson about coaching one day." Robinson has one foot out the NFL door, but remained a competent lead blocker last season. He could get calls in camp or September. Thu, Jun 19, 2014 07:46:00 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks are moving on without free agent FB Michael Robinson.

Carroll "has talked to Robinson about coaching one day." The former Penn State quarterback is still only 31 years old, and was not embarrassed as a lead blocker in limited action last season. He added three special teams tackles.

Free agent FB Michael Robinson said he hasn't found a market for his services.

Robinson, who won a Super Bowl as Marshawn Lynch's sparingly-used lead blocker last season, sounds like he's preparing to retire if his phone doesn't ring soon. "There really isn't a market for 31-year fullbacks headed into their ninth year in the league," he admitted. Robinson has a broadcasting career awaiting him once he officially hangs up the cleats. He's already appeared on ESPN, NFL Network and "The Young and the Restless."

The Seattle Times guesses that the Seahawks will bring back free agent FB Michael Robinson for one more year.

It would be a luxury re-signing for the Seahawks. Robinson is a popular team leader and strong lead blocker, but he played on just 36-of-186 snaps (19.3 percent) during the three playoff wins. Derrick Coleman and Spencer Ware are candidates to step up if Robinson isn't retained.

Seahawks signed FB Michael Robinson.

Robinson was released by the Seahawks during final cuts, but is now needed with Derrick Coleman (hamstring) and Spencer Ware (ankle) both sidelined. He was Seattle’s starting fullback the previous three seasons, so it's not a downgrade to Marshawn Lynch and the running game.

Free agent FB Michael Robinson is taking a physical with the Seahawks Monday.

Robinson shined as a lead blocker and special teamer for the Seahawks from 2010-12, but was a cap casualty at final cuts. But with Derrick Coleman (hamstring) and Spencer Ware (ankle) both sidelined, coach Pete Carroll needs Robinson back.

Free agent FB Michael Robinson will visit the Titans on Friday.

It's Robinson's first visit since he was cut loose by the Seahawks. It's possible the Titans are looking at him for Sunday's game, as starting FB Quinn Johnson has been missing time with a quad injury.

Seahawks released FB Michael Robinson.

Robinson broke the news on his Twitter account. Robinson is one of the league's better lead blockers and special teamers, but was due a hefty $2.5 million, and was out indefinitely with an "illness." Rookie Spencer Ware should now pave the way for Marshawn Lynch and company. Robinson is on the wrong side of 30, but will almost certainly find work this season.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 08:42:00 PM

Seahawks FB Michael Robinson (illness) has missed the last 10 days of practice and "could be out for a few weeks."

Some believe Robinson is on the roster bubble in Seattle. It's hard to see a team like the Seahawks, who are in win-now mode, cutting a special teams leader and trusted lead blocker like Robinson. Sixth-round FB Spencer Ware is on the outside looking in. He'd be easier to retain via practice squad.
Thu, Aug 29, 2013 04:26:00 PM

ESPN 710 says it's "hard to imagine" the Seahawks cutting FB Michael Robinson.

Robinson is owed $2.5 million in 2013 and the Seahawks used a sixth-round pick on 228-pound RB/FB Spencer Ware. But Robinson has Marshawn Lynch's trust as a lead blocker and is a special teams captain. He has a ton of value that doesn't show up in the box score.
Wed, Jul 17, 2013 10:16:00 AM

Seahawks FB Michael Robinson and WR Ben Obomanu are seeing a specialist for their wrist injuries on Monday.

Both players were injured in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Robinson was a Pro Bowler last season, but Obomanu is primarily a special teams player. If Robinson was forced to miss time, we could see some two-running back sets with Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin in Week 9 against the Vikings.
Mon, Oct 29, 2012 06:44:00 PM

Seahawks signed FB Michael Robinson to a two-year, $5 million contract.

The versatile team leader is coming off his first Pro Bowl nod after paving the way for Marshawn Lynch's career-best 1,204 yards and 11 touchdowns. Robinson is also a special teams captain, recording 10 tackles, a forced fumble and a blocked punt return touchdown last season.
Fri, Mar 16, 2012 08:53:00 AM

Seahawks FB Michael Robinson left Thursday's game in the fourth quarter with an apparent groin injury.

Robinson appeared to tweak his groin at the end of a six-yard catch-and-run. He was a major part of the passing game with four catches for 41 yards while also lead-blocking for Marshawn Lynch's 148-yard performance in just over three quarters.
Thu, Dec 1, 2011 10:55:00 PM

Seahawks FB Michael Robinson could miss up to eight weeks with a high left ankle sprain.

NFL teams don't keep injured special teamers around on the game-day inactives list, so Robinson is a candidate for I.R. The Seahawks did have three or four fullbacks in their training camp and could re-sign one of them shortly.
Sun, Sep 11, 2011 06:44:00 PM

Seahawks FB Michael Robinson left Sunday's opener in the first quarter with a left ankle injury and was deemed "doubtful" to return.

The quick doubtful tag indicates a potentially serious injury, perhaps a high ankle sprain. Robinson is an occasional lead blocker and special teamer.
