Michael Robinson apparently won’t be making the Seattle Seahawks’ 53-man roster.
Robinson, a fullback who has been with the Seahawks the last three seasons and played in all 16 games with six starts last year, wrote a goodbye message to Seattle on Twitter on Friday, just under 24 hours before the 6 p.m. Eastern Saturday deadline for teams to get down to 53 players.

The 30-year-old Robinson signed with the Seahawks in 2010 and was a Pro Bowler in 2011. He played his first four seasons with the 49ers and will now become a free agent at a time when he still has something to contribute, but when few NFL teams are looking for fullbacks.
