The Seahawks didn’t made any roster cut announcements Friday, but Robinson sent a tweet at around 5:30 p.m. PT:
Been real #12thMan will always have love for ya
— Michael Robinson (@RealMikeRob) August 31, 2013
Robinson is in his eighth NFL season, having spent four years in San Francisco before coming to Seattle in 2010. He is viewed as an excellent blocker who helped Marshawn Lynch to back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, including a career-best 1,590 yards in 2012.
Robinson did not play in the final two preseason games because he was suffering from a virus. He was extremely popular with the Seahawks players and grew to become one of the leaders for a young and blossoming group of players that includes quarterback Russell Wilson and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, who reacted on Twitter:
I'm going to miss you @RealMikeRob You're the best in the business. Love you VA.
— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) August 31, 2013
I did not see that coming
— Bobby Wagner (@Bwagz54) August 31, 2013
Robinson likely would be picked up by another organization, which could also be true of several cuts the Seahawks make.
