Former Seahawk-turned current Seahawk Michael Robinson met the media today to talk about his return to the team.
Among the more notable news items:
— Robinson said he had a bad reaction to an anti-inflammatory named Indocin that affected his kidney and liver and caused two different overnight stays in the hospital. He said it came up the day of the Denver exhibition game and that he ultimately lost enough weight that he was down to 212 pounds —- he said he’s now back to 245.
— Robinson said he worked out every day once he got back to feeling normal again, which he said was about six weeks ago. He had tryouts during that time with the Titans and Giants. But he said the Titans went another direction other than adding a fullback at the time and that he was a little wary of the situation with the Giants.
— He said the Seahawks told him from the start that they might be calling on him later so he knew this was a possibility all along.
— He said he was watching Thursday’s game and saw Derrick Coleman get hurt and knew at that point the team might be calling. He said he got a text from John Schneider that set the wheels in motion pretty quickly for his return.
— He said he talked to about 80 percent of the Seahawks just about every day, in particular Marshawn Lynch.
— Robinson said he wasn’t sure if the RealRobReport will return this year, saying he doesn’t want anything to be a distraction to the team. Said he planned to talk soon to Pete Carroll about it.
