Fullback Michael Robinson announced on Twitter that he has re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks.
According to a league source, Robinson has signed a two-year deal worth $5 million. There was no signing bonus included and Robinson will make $1.5 million in base salary with a $1 million roster bonus in 2012. Next season, Robinson has a $2.5 million base salary. There are also $250,000 incentives tied to Pro Bowls in the deal.
A versatile offensive weapon who played quarterback and running back at Penn State, the 6-foot-1, 225-pound Robinson moved to running back after being selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. In 87 games over the last six seasons, Robinson has 102 rushing attempts for 373 yards and two touchdowns and has caught 60 passes for 457 yards and a touchdown.
Robinson helped pave the way for Marshawn Lynch's 1,200 rushing yards/12 touchdown season and was added to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster as a replacement for Green Bay Packers fullback John Kuhn. Robinson is also a special teams ace, totaling 60 tackles on special teams over his career.
