With a lot of money still being owed and age being a concern, Seattle Seahawks fan favorite Michael Robinson has been cut by the team.
Robinson released a tweet earlier tonight, and the NFL has since confirmed the transaction on their roster cut tracker.

Robinson was a fourth-round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2006, playing with that team for the first four years of his career before moving on to the Seahawks for three years.
His stats aren’t impressive with just 422 yards gained in his career, but Rotoworld describes that the back is more known for his work on special teams and as a lead blocker.
Robinson is one of the league’s better lead blockers and special teamers, but was due a hefty $2.5 million, and was out indefinitely with an “illness.” Rookie Spencer Ware should now pave the way for Marshawn Lynch and company.
It won’t be hard for Robinson to find work. Maybe he can complete the NFC West group and play with the St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals next.
