Robinson, who was released at the end of the preseason, is expected to take a physical with the Seahawks Monday before the team makes a decision about adding him to the 53-man roster.
Robinson (6-1, 240) was Seattle’s starting fullback the previous three seasons, but he missed the last two preseason games this summer with a mysterious illness. The Seahawks decided to go with younger players at the position in Derrick Coleman and rookie Spencer Ware, partially because of Robinson’s $2.5 million salary. But the team could re-sign him for around $850,000.
Coleman suffered a hamstring injury in the game at Arizona Thursday night and Ware has been out with an ankle sprain.
Robinson, a former Penn State quarterback, is viewed as an outstanding blocker, helping Marshawn Lynch rush for a career-best 1,590 yards last season. The 30-year-old Robinson also was one of the team leaders the last couple of years and a man many younger players leaned on for advice.
