The NFL typically sees stars crossover into other mediums of entertainment in the offseason, as the game is the most popular one played in the country and television shows and movies want to cash in whenever possible. Apparently soap operas are getting on on the NFL cameo business as well, with word that Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl champion Michael Robinson will be guest starring on Young & The Restless in an upcoming episode.

According to The Wrap, the Seahawks fullback has already filmed the guest spot he booked after the Super Bowl and will be drawing in a whole new audience of football fans to soap operas and fans of sop opera to football.

Per The Wrap:

Robinson, who taped his appearance last week, recently told “NFL Access” that “watching the stories” on “The Young and the Restless” is a guilty pleasure of his. Getting wind of his allegiance to the show, producers jumped into action and invited him to appear on the show, and Robinson eagerly accepted.

Usually guys just go to Disneyland when they win the Super Bowl, but Robinson is getting in to the soap opera game and he must be credited for at least being original about his first post-Super Bowl move.
