Several teammates also Tweeted about the news, including quarterback Russell Wilson, who wrote: “I’m going to miss you RealMikeRob. You’re the best in the business. Love you VA.’’
Robinson, signed as a free agent in 2010, was due to make $2.5 million this year, making him among the highest-paid fullbacks in the NFL.
