Fullback Michael Robinson rejoined the Seahawks during the 2013 season and stuck with them through a Super Bowl title that put a very happy twist on a year that started with a health scare that caused him to lose over 30 pounds while making two trips to the hospital.
That might turn out to be something of a Hollywood ending for Robinson’s NFL career. His contract expired after the Seahawks won in New Jersey and Robinson is exploring other career options in the event his career comes to an end, something Robinson called likely.
“There really isn’t a market for 31-year-old fullbacks headed into their ninth year in the league,” Robinson said, via StateCollege.com. “Economically speaking, I understand that. I’m going to give myself a little time after the draft to let teams see how their rosters shake out. After seeing what happens, I’m probably going to call it a career.”
Robinson has done some broadcasting for major outlets as well as running his own web show and he’s branching out into acting with an appearance on The Young and the Restless next month. The future’s a lot brighter on those fronts than they are for 31-year-old fullbacks, which may mean it is time to get familiar with an unhelmeted Robinson.
