NFL Free Agents: Michael Robinson, Seattle Seahawks Reportedly Agree To Deal

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to re-sign running back Michael Robinson for the 2011 season according to ESPN's John Clayton. 

Robinson made the most of his appearances for Seattle last season on special teams but had a few plays out of the backfield as well, carrying the ball 12 times for 77 yards and catching eight passes for 37 yards. He spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the 49ers before moving to Seattle last season where he likely will contribute more on offense alongside Marshawn Lynch, Leon Washington, and Chris Henry. 

A quarterback in his college days at Penn State, Robinson is also the only player on the squad aside from rookies that are built to play fullback, a place he likely will see the majority of his playing time out of the backfield this year. Whereever he plays, his versatility will be a great asset to the Seahawks as the move forward throughout the season.
