Michael Robinson returns to Seahawks

Michael Robinson is back with the Seahawks.

Robinson, the fullback who played the last three years in Seattle, announced on Twitter today that he has re-signed with the team.

The move comes as no surprise after news broke yesterday that Robinson was on his way to Seattle for a physical. The Seahawks already had two fullbacks on the roster, Derrick Coleman and Spencer Ware, but Coleman hurt his hamstring on Thursday against the Cardinals and Ware has a sprained ankle.

The 30-year-old Robinson played in all 16 games for the Seahawks last year, starting six, and was a Pro Bowler in 2011.

    If he’s healthy, this is a great move. He has a sixth sense for blocking for The Beast. I think my football team and my fantasy team just got better.

    They’re going to need him. With the Niners and Hawks both getting healthier, December 8th is going to be a hell of a game. Hopefully Harbaugh improves upon his 3-2 record vs Seattle. Points don’t matter, w’s do.

    So happy to have MikeRob back on the Seahawks! Such a fan favorite and a locker room leader – glad he is back for this championship run. Look for more 100+ yard rushing games with BeastMode’s Eyes back on the field.

    That’s the difference between Seattle and frisco…Hawks don’t rely on “hoping” they can win, they just go out and dominate the niners. Plain and simple.

    As soon as Coleman went down on the sideline, I immediately thought about Robinson.

    If you don’t believe dominating a team in all 3 phases of football has an effect on another team you never played sports. This also happen on national tv the last two times these teams played each other. Football is a game of match ups and 49ers vs Seahawks is a mismatch like I have said many times over.

    Michael Robinson coming back is huge for Lynch. Its also big for Wilson is protection multiple formations because Mike Rob is just one of those excellent blockers. Ware hasn’t really lined up fullback yet and Coleman still needs a year to be a true lead blocker.

    I am a Yankee fan and I hate people in our fanbase who pull that 27 World Series nonsense. SF hasn’t won anything in 20 years. We are in 2013 and Seattle is the better team. Just stop.

  14. thedude90 says: Oct 22, 2013 2:12 PM

    Michael should’ve never been let go. That transaction/cut was the only real disappointing move by the Carroll regime. I smell me some serious holes in the next few weeks being opened up!

  15. jason9696 says: Oct 22, 2013 2:14 PM

    Gotta love the Shehawks fans spouting off. And we aren’t even in November yet.

  16. trollhammer20 says: Oct 22, 2013 2:20 PM

    Jason 9696: Is your nickname representative of the 9.6 points per game SF is averaging in their last three games versus the Seahawks?

    Odd thing to commemorate, that.

    This signing is big. Most teams are picking the scrap heap to get a replacement at this time of year. Seattle is getting a guy who knows the offense inside and out and is a leader in the locker room. This has almost certainly IMPROVED the team over the short term, and that is something you just don’t see very often when players are signed off the street at this time in the season.

  17. sportnorcal says: Oct 22, 2013 2:27 PM

    “SF hasn’t won anything in 20 years.”

    I agree, I hate people playing the Championships card, but Seattle hasn’t won anything either. Ever, in fact.

    When you have no history you retire fan jerseys and talk about final scores on games that aren’t Super Bowls. Seattle has dominated the last few at home though.

    Both of these teams are good enough now that the only game that really matters is the final one of the season.

    Child please. The Hawks said the same thing last year. Then they lost in the playoffs. 2 division titles, 2 NFC Championship games,1 Superbowl aappearance in two years. What have the Hawks accomplished in that time frame besides their regular season Super Bowls vs the Niners? Jack squat. The Niners are better until they lose when it actually matters.

  19. hillbillyjim says: Oct 22, 2013 2:32 PM

    If you were 6-1 you’d spout off too, but you’re not. Instead you got crushed in back to back weeks by the Hawks and Colts. Here’s a novel idea, if you don’t want to read Hawk fans spouting off don’t click on an article about the seahawks.

  21. phx9erfan says: Oct 22, 2013 2:42 PM

    If Robinson is soooo great why was he on the street? The coaching staff didn’t think he was that great or they would have signed him before the two other guys got hurt. This is a good pickup but i doubt it makes the team better, if anything they don’t have a drop off. i’m a life long 49ers fan and the only thing I hate about the Seahawks is the fan base. They act like the francise has done something. You have a good team enjoy it while it last.

    ******************************************

    He had a non-football related illness that called into question if he would be able to play. Must be he has recovered. The $2.4 million he was set to be paid probably factored into the equation too.

  27. chawk12thman says: Oct 22, 2013 3:10 PM

    The Hawks saved the money he was due this season, and now have him back. Not many teams use the FullBack like the Hawks, so that is why he was still “on the street”. Glad he was.

    Didn’t agree with them releasing him, so this gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

    Good Move.

    phx9erfan says: Oct 22, 2013 2:42 PM

    If Robinson is soooo great why was he on the street?
    _______________________________

    A few reasons, actually.

    1) He was scheduled to make $2.5 million this year, and the other players (Coleman, Ware) were much cheaper. This game is a business, and the salary cap often dictates who gets cut and who is kept. It’s the nature of the game these days.

    2) He is 30 years old, and the younger players also have more long-term upside. Not that they are better now, but over the long term they had more to offer.

    3) He was having health problems at the time he was cut related to some kind of reaction to a prescription medication. Hard to keep an older guy who is more expensive, throw in him not feeling well and that made the decision more rational. That has all cleared up now, he passed his physical, and is good to go.

    4) FB isn’t a highly valued position in the league anymore, so no other team acted to sign him in the weeks since.

    Glad you asked!

  29. waynebrettsky says: Oct 22, 2013 3:24 PM

    Apparently Mike Rob actually had a really bad allergic reaction to a medication he was taking and was extremely unhealthy for a little while. This as well as roster and cap space concerns were why he was cut.

    I don’t think any of the coaches wanted to let him go, but they had to at that point. I’m just glad to have him back! I missed the Real Rob Report!!!

    Or you talk about Superbowls that happened when your grandpappy was still in high school.

    Last I checked, the only Superbowl the 49ers have been in over the last few decades, they just LOST. You wanna talk about that final score?

    Actually, going to the super bowl was an experience I’ll never forget regardless of the outcome. Knowing Seattle was at home watching Duck Dynasty made it even sweeter.

  35. maxwell0116 says: Oct 22, 2013 3:49 PM

    Hate to say it but this “bad reaction to a prescription” was most likely opiate withdrawal. The amount of pain meds football players take (especially guys who makes a living banging their bodies into guys to open holes for a RB) is usually a lot. Anybody who has played at the college level or above knows this.

  37. dan1961 says: Oct 22, 2013 3:57 PM

    The 37 years of no super bowl wins could change very soon and with a very young football team there is chance of winning multiple in the future very young and talented.

  38. assuredmutualdestruction says: Oct 22, 2013 3:58 PM

    I’ll bet NONE of you forget. It was one of the biggest chokes in the history of the game. You were the favorite and you blew it.

  39. barrgg says: Oct 22, 2013 4:12 PM

    I can only laugh at you 49er morons – I mean the ones that talk about how Seattle hasn’t won a Superbowl. You obviously don’t know the history of your team, or otherwise you would know that the 49ers were in existence for 35 years before winning a world championship. Seattle is at 37 years.

  40. barrgg says: Oct 22, 2013 4:14 PM

    Oh I forgot to add, there were quite a few less teams to compete with during a number of those first 35 years that the 49ers existed.

    Seattle bragging about 49ers losing a Super Bowl is equivalent to the Browns bragging about the Steelers losing the Super Bowl. To bad it wasn’t Seattle that beat the Steelers huh?

  42. hillbillyjim says: Oct 22, 2013 4:21 PM

    If we’re gonna talk about San Francisco’s Super Bowl wins we might as well talk about landing on the moon and the Roman Empire.

    49er’s are a good team with a nice history.

    Seattle has been the better team since they arrived to the NFC West.
    Better head to head record.

    Any 49er fan that wants to talk about the Seahawks having a couple of good seasons should look in the mirror. That is the 49er record over the last two seasons. Before that you need to go back 20 years to when the niners were relevant.

    The worst part of Seattle’s schedule is behind them.
    Most likely the toughest games are in SF and at home against the Saints.
    They have handled the toughest part of their schedule without most of their starting offensive line.

    15 and 1 or 14 and 2 are very doable for the Seahawks if they manage to avoid the injuries plaguing most of the NFL this year.

  45. maxwell0116 says: Oct 22, 2013 4:47 PM

    Oh I love being right. Mike Rob blames Indomethacin for the allergic reaction which is often times prescribed in conjunction with narcotic pain meds to help reduce swelling. Indomethacin rarely causes side effects like the ones Mike Rob described as it’s basically a strong Rx form of ibuprofen which is filtered out of the body by the kidneys. He claims his liver almost failed which scientifically isn’t likely since Indomethacin doesn’t cause stress on the liver. Mike Rob likely suffered from narcotic pain medicine withdrawal or he took too much at a single time which absolutely can cause liver problems due to the acetaminophen in narcotic pain meds. Regardless, I love this guy and am happy he’s back and healthy!

    Oh, those Steve Young and Jeff Garcia years never happened? Try 10 years. And tell me one team that has always been good. Seattle has always been bad. The only time they looked decent is when the 49ers were struggling.

    Sorry I rounded it off. Last time 49ers won the super bowl was 1995.
    18 years. I was closer saying 20 than you were saying 10.

    49ers must have been struggling ever since the Seahawks have been in the NFC West, cause up until two seasons ago Seattle owned NFC West… yeah not always wonderful records.. .but they still won the division.

    Keep living ancient history. The only season that really matters is the current one.
    The only game that matters is the one played on any given Sunday.

    Key is neither team is guaranteed a win.

    This is a Seahawk article and you have come here to troll. Have a great day.
