Fullback Michael Robinson set to visit Titans

The Seattle Seahawks released veteran fullback Michael Robinson during their final cuts last weekend. Now the Seahawks’ former special teams captain is getting a look from a new team.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Robinson is scheduled to visit with the Tennessee Titans on Friday.

Robinson was released by Seattle in a move to help alleviate future salary cap concerns. He was scheduled to make $2.5 million this season and the entirety of his contract came off the books for Seattle upon his release. In addition, Robinson had missed time with a sore ankle during training camp and came down with a viral infection over the final two weeks of camp that forced him to stay away from the team while recovering.

As contracts become fully guaranteed if players are on the roster for Week 1 of the season, Robinson will likely have to wait through the weekend before getting an offer from a team. In addition, the TItans could choose to wait to offer him a deal if he’s not completely past his illness as well. However, Robinson can be a contributor for many teams on special teams and should find a new team before too long.

    Robinson is a great asset to any backfield. Definitely disappointed the Seahawks cut him, and hoping he finds a home before this Sunday.

    Definition of cap casualty. He was and is a great player. His position makes him somewhat replaceable. Their isn’t a 12th man fan who doesn’t love this guy. We wish him all the hr best wherever he goes hopefully he doesn’t land in an nfcw team.

    Do work mike rob.

    After Week 1, the Seahawks might bring him back too.

    Cool, we get another fresh body to do his best Usain Bolt impression until the touchback whistle blows and he makes a b line for the bench.

    Exactly how many millions will that cost us..?

    Michael Robinson is one of the best full backs in football, great special teams player and true locker room guy. I know PC/JS have gone with youth and cost saving but this one hurt many Hawk fans because he is still playing at a high level. Titans sign him Chris Johnson is going to be having some clean holes. He’s going to be a coach one day, no doubt about it.

    Michael Robinson is a great fullback and classy player. As a Seahawks fan, I wish him all the best but hope he returns to the ‘Hawks down the line.
