Free agent FB Michael Robinson recently mentioned that he’ll probably retire from the NFL and pursue a broadcasting career.
“There really isn’t a market for 31-year fullbacks headed into their ninth year in the league,” Robinson said, via StateCollege.com. “Economically speaking, I understand that. I’m going to give myself a little time after the draft to let teams see how their rosters shake out. After seeing what happens, I’m probably going to call it a career.”
Robinson, 31, didn’t make the Seahawks final 53-man roster out of training camp, but he would he later sign with them in October and help them reach and ultimately win their first Super Bowl title.
“I’m treating my broadcast career as if I am not going to play any more,” Robinson said. “And if I do get a call from a team, then I’m counting that as a bonus.”
Last year, Robinson finished with one carry for zero yards and two receptions for 27 yards receiving over the course of nine games.
