Some say that the fullback position has been made obsolete in the modern NFL, but don’t tell the Seattle Seahawks.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson has been re-signed by the team. This comes just a day after Robinson was brought in for a physical.
Seattle currently has three fullbacks on the roster with Derrick Coleman, Spencer Ware, and now Robinson. However, Coleman injured his hamstring in Thursday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals, and Ware has suffered a sprained ankle.
The 30-year-old Robinson played for Seattle for the last three years, and started six games last season. He was a Pro Bowler for Seattle in 2011. Robinson, a fan favorite in Seattle, should be able to step in and be an effective lead blocker for running back Marshawn Lynch right away.
The news of Robinson’s resigning was first tweeted by teammate Chris Clemons.
