Michael Robinson Could Be On His Way Out


News came in yesterday that the Seahawks claimed Allen Bradford off of waivers from Tampa Bay. When I heard, my initial thought was that he was simply going to take roster spot previously held by Jameson Konz, who was a special teams only player who was just placed on IR. The Seahawks were just simply swapping in a new special teams specialist. Bradford played for Pete Carroll at USC.

Bradford is a hybrid HB/FB, known for being willing to block, and for running people over when given a chance to carry the ball, and is a standout on special teams. Sounds familiar? That’s same description that could be used to describe Michael Robinson.

The Seahawks have other roster needs, like a LB to replace Aaron Curry, or a TE to help cover for the injured Zach Miller. There’s simply no reason to keep two players like Robinson and Bradford at the same time. It’s easy to come to the conclusion Bradford’s addition is likely to be followed shortly by Robinson’s subtraction.

I could be way off base here, (It’s not like it would be the first time) but it seems pretty easy to connect the dots on this one.

    Is MRob even a descent blocker? I never hear anyone talk about him. I was ready to fire this guy myself after that ridiculous fumble at New York. I know he’s solid on ST but as a hybrid HB/FB is he good? How productive is he? I remember seeing Mack Strong alot but I NEVER see MRob catching, running or blocking. Can we just get a real FB (like a Karney) and have other positions like CB pick up the slack on ST? I don’t like these tweeners that really don’t do anything in particular that well.

    @wespipes69 He’s not the same type of player as Strong. Strong was a pro bowl caliber classic FB. The Seahawks almost never use a FB, since they rarely use the I formation. Pretty much Robinson only sees the field on ST and in the goal line package.
