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.)
