Looks like Michael Robinson is a Seahawk once again.

    Robinson’s main concern after getting cut this year was his health. He went all the way down to 212 pounds, was admitted to the hospital twice, and had liver and kidney concerns.

    Robinson was taking a prescribed anti-inflammatory twice a day. He said he became dehydrated and had the flu, which kind of put together a “perfect storm” for him.

    He went to the hospital once, then was readmitted a couple days later and said doctors told him he should have never left in the first place.

  • I love how the Doctors always say you should never have left in the first place, they are the ones that discharge you and tell you to call your primary doctor and set up a appointment with someone.

    The did the same thing with my wife, then night guy came in looked at CAT scan and called us and said don't move don't get up were sending an ambulance.

    And the Rams will be on the receiving end of a feel-good a$$ kicking. Hopefully I'll remember the end of it. :th2thumbs:

    Saw in an ESPN article it was league min 840k for an 8 year vet but dont recall if it was multi year on not

    edit: it doesnt say how long the contract is

    "But the team was able to re-sign Robinson for $840,000, the NFL minimum for a player with his experience."

    I am jacked that he is back and healthy. He was part of building this and deserves to contribute if he can play. I totally get the move to cut him, but I am just glad he is back home.

    It wold be awesome to see if the team names him honary captain and he gets a C on his jersey.

    If not it would be cool to see Wilson or Farwell give thiers to Robinson in a heartfelt inspirational moment in which would be another reason why the Seahawks is one of the best franchises to root for this year.

  • I've seen many people say he doesnt bring much other than a youtube show. Thats insane to say. I know the fullback position isnt a key part of the offense anymore. But when he is needed, he is as good as any. And thats not even what he brings to the team. He IS a leader. Pretty much everyone in the locker room looks up to him and likes him. Ill explain it this way, in 2011 LSU had the best defense in college football, the key playmaker was Tyrann Mathieu. When he got kicked off the team, LSU returned most of that defense. But they werent the same, people said they didnt have the same "swagger" even though it was most of the same players. And in multiple interviews, Les Miles, AND the players themselves said Tyrann was a leader, he set the attitude and emotion. Even when he wasnt making plays he set the tone and everyone stepped up. It feels like MRob is that person for the Seahawks.

    Probably not going to happen with Rob making the veteran min but I can tell your just playing the Skip Bayless card you do so well.

    Unless Robinson's body fails, the difference between Robinson and Coleman is the same difference between Miller and Willson. And the Seahawks would be crazy to cut Robinson... you have Percy Harvin ready to rock but getting M-Rob is a much bigger morale booster than Harvin.

    Seattle Seahawks, where getting back your min. wage FB is a better feeling than finally getting your 60 million WR/RB play-making extraordinaire investment onto the field.

    No way Lynch let's Robinson get released once again... Lynch would probably drop kick Schnieder and punch Carroll in the mouth if it happened again.

    I kind of got a vibe from Pete's interview that Coleman's hamstring was an injury so terrible it was right up there with Flynn's elbow.

  • Why would he make his wife move mid-season up to Seattle from their Arizona home? I am not sure about his kid(s) ages besides his 3 year old but if he had kids in school, it would be a bit much to have them pulled out of school for something that right now looks like a 4 month assignment. If after the season is over the team indicates to him that they want him to come to camp next year, I would expect he and his family would rent living space in the spring.

    So it may be that he wanted to just work with no distractions, but I don't think any man can get away with calling his family a distraction in public and not see the hand of god strike him down. As he mentioned in his interview, he was going to talk to his wife about him staying with Marshawn. It probably was to make sure she is okay with not coming up since once shown the door, I wouldn't be so quick to move family either. It is a business and his contract is not guaranteed. He may have gotten some signing bonus but how much isn't known yet.

  • Two observations . . .

    1. Has any franchise ever had the stretch of greatness at one position that the Seahaks have had at FB? John L. from 86 to 93. Mack from 94 tp 2007. RR from 2010 to present. Embarrassment of riches.

    2. Has any fan base ever loved fullbacks as much as this fanbase? Multiple threads and thousands of posts bemoaning the release of a fullback, and multiple threads and thousands of posts celebrating his return . . . And the same love was and is shown to both Mack and John L as well.

    And a bonus third observation . . . Robinson is cool as Jesus. Love the part about the evaporating scout following him around the building.

    For all the memories we have of passers like Zorn, Krieg, Hasselbeck and (in the future) Wilson, this is very much a rushing franchise, from Sherman Smith and Curt Warner to Shaun Alexander and Marshawn Lynch. Fullbacks will always be important to us and I rue the day when that is no longer the case.

    It wasn't quite that seamless. Mack was a late bloomer, underpeforming and/or underutilized until Holmgren came aboard. Under Flores and Erickson, he bounced up and down our depth chart and every year we tried to replace him, with the likes of Reggie Brown, Steve Smith, Tracy Johnson, and Oscar "Hemorrhoids" Gray. I don't think he was active for a full season until 2000 or so.
