Michael Robinson declines comment on whether Marshawn Lynch is squeezing the Seahawks
Friday’s PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio included a short-notice visit from former NFL fullback Michael Robinson. The NFL Network analyst, who previously played for the Seahawks and 49ers, has a friendship with Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch.
Robinson has said he doesn’t know whether Lynch will play in 2015. So I ran by Robinson my theory that Lynch is a genius, and Lynch realizes that the uncertainty about his status will squeeze more money from the Seahawks.
Initially, Robinson laughed.
“Oh, man,” Robinson said. “I’ll let you hypothesize on that theory, but I’m a little too close to the situation to be able to really say. But, yes, that’s a good hypothesis.”
Robinson also had some unique insight regarding the final Seattle snap in Super Bowl XLIX, given that he played quarterback at Penn State. To hear the whole thing, click here and select hour two from the most recent broadcast, during which I repeatedly dared Friday the 13th to come and get me.
And it hasn’t. Yet.
