Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson joined PFT Live on Wednesday to discuss a wide variety of topics, including his recent birthday breakfast-tossing skydiving adventure, which was videotaped and posted at

He also addressed his future with the Seahawks (he’ll be a free agent on March 13), the status of the Seattle franchise, and his excellent idea for making the Pro Bowl a better game.

The most compelling portion came when he talked about flying from the Pro Bowl practices in Hawaii to Pennsylvania and back again, so that he could speak at Joe Paterno’s memorial service. Robinson’s comments about the experiences and what he remembers most about Coach Paterno are pasted below. The full interview can be seen right here.
