Friday Round-Up: Former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson talks Marshawn Lynch's future

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, Feb. 13 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Mike Rob Talks Marshawn

Former Seahawks fullback and current NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson, a close friend to Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, joined 710 ESPN Seattle's 'Danny, Dave and Moore' show on Thursday to shed some light on Lynch's future in the Emerald City. 

"I don't know," Robinson replied when asked if he thinks Lynch will play in 2015. "I don't think Marshawn knows yet. It's very difficult to ask a running back, of all positions, a guy who's had 788 touches over the last two years, has he had enough football? You can't ask him that right after the season because your body is telling you yes.

"I think right now you've just kind of got to let him wait it out, let him see how the offseason goes, let him get his body feeling right again and then you will see whether he wants to come back or not."

Robinson's comments echo what Seahawks general manager John Schneider told 710 ESPN Seattle on Tuesday - that Lynch, who will turn 29 before the season kicks off, is considering retirement. Schneider made it clear the club wants Lynch back, calling him a "heartbeat" guy on the team.

If Robinson were a betting man - which Robinson stressed he isn't - he said he thinks Lynch will play in Seattle next season. Yet Robinson remained adamant in his uncertainty throughout the interview. 

"The guy loves his teammates, he loves the city of Seattle, he loves the 12s and what they bring to the game and how they kind of embody his style of football, that's what I do know," said Robinson. "But when you talk about whether he's going to retire? I don't think even he knows the answer to that question."
