Seahawks’ Michael Robinson May Retire
The veteran fullback has hinted that if he can’t land a job on an NFL roster this season, he may call it a career.
Robinson told statecollege.com recently:
“There really isn’t a market for 31-year fullbacks headed into their ninth year in the league,” Robinson said over the weekend. “Economically speaking, I understand that. I’m going to give myself a little time after the draft to let teams see how their rosters shake out. After seeing what happens, I’m probably going to call it a career.”
Last season Robinson endured a reaction to an anti-inflammatory medication that caused him to lose weight and attacked his kidneys during training camp. He was released on the cut dozen to 53 players, but recovered and was brought back by the team later in the season. He was a major contributor in the Seahawks’ Super Bowl run.
Third-year fullback Derrick Coleman is likely to step into the starting spot in 2014.
