The Seattle Seahawks have decided to bring back a familiar face today in Michael Robinson, who will return to his old role as the Seahawks starting fullback. Robinson spent the first four seasons of his career with the rival San Francisco 49ers before joining the Seahawks in 2010, and he was the Seahawks starting FB from 2010 to 2012. He has had experience on returns back when he played for the 49ers, and the 30-year-old veteran is pretty well-rounded and can make some nice plays in the passing game.
The Seahawks decided to work out Robinson yesterday in lieu of a couple of injuries, so it’s definitely not a surprise that the Seahawks have decided to go ahead and make the move to sign Robinson. He knows the Seahawks very well and has been productive in the past. It’s good to see him back in Seattle, and he is one of the best blocking fullbacks in the league.
Robinson’s solid play will help elevate Marshawn Lynch, and we’ll see if he can also ghost in for a score or two in the passing game as well. It’s difficult not to like this re-signing, and the only reason why he was cut by the team during the 53-man crunchdown is because of salary issues. I’m sure he’s much cheaper now.
