- FB Michael Robinson – Unsigned considering retirement
Robinson was once again an important cog to Seattle’s late season run last season after he returned from the sickness that knocked him out of the lineup and off the team in preseason. Marshawn Lynch and he clearly have developed a rapport, but at some point Robinson has to become collateral damage. He has said if he isn’t re-signed by Seattle he will consider retirement. With Spencer Ware and Derrick Coleman returning and Seattle drafting another, that time for Robinson has come. If he does indeed retire, I don’t think there’s a person throughout the entire Seahawks’ organization who isn’t happy that he, of all people, was able to accomplish World Champion status and get himself a ring. Michael Robinson is the very definition of a “first rate, class-act individual.”

- TE Kellen Davis – Signed with New York Giants
Davis wasn’t much of a threat in Seattle because he couldn’t block, but he has value in New York where they really desired a situational pass-catcher. Good player but very limited skill set ultimately didn’t fit in this offense.
