Breaking: Seahawks Appear to Have Cut Michael Robinson


The Seahawks have yet to announce any of their cuts yet, but one move was leaked to the world by Michael Robinson on his own twitter account.

There has been no official word from the team yet. I’ll update this article if we hear anything else.

Robinson is a fan favorite, but his making the roster was less likely than many fans wanted to admit. His $2.5 million salary is massive for a FB, no matter how good. Robinson is also getting older, and the Seahawks have made a point to get, and stay, young wherever they can.

Robinson likely wont be unemployed for long. He’s a good lead blocker, as well being decent in pass protection. I expect he’ll find a job soon, though likely not until after Tuesday. (Vested veteran players on the rosters on Tuesday have their entire salary for the year become guaranteed. Waiting until Wednesday to sign veterans who were cut is common practice.)

    Lots of appreciation to Michael Robinson.

  • Michael James White

    Wow, Keith. Didn’t see that coming. Do you think Spencer is ready?

      He’s not going to be MRob, but he’s ready for what Seattle needs from him.

      Not Ware. Derrick Coleman. He’s the new starting FB, and he’ll be just fine. He wasn’t quite up to the level of Robinson, but he was surprisingly close. Given that Robinson was making 5 times as much was Ware, this wasn’t that difficult of a decision.

    hmmm. Who could’ve seen this coming? Oh wait, ME! As soon as Spencer Ware was drafted, this move was inevitable. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE MROB! LOVE HIM! But sometimes the business is more important than “fan favorites”. This move and Giacamini being replaced HAVE to happen.
