SEATTLE — Popular Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson tweeted Friday that he was no longer with the team — making him the first of 22 cuts the team has to make to get down to the 53-man roster size by 3 p.m. Saturday.

Robinson, 30, tweeted a goodbye, saying: “Been real 12th Man will always have love for ya.’’

Robinson, who had signed as a free agent in 2010, was due to make a $2.5 million base salary this year — considered high pay for a fullback in today’s pass-happy NFL.

NFL.com said that with Robinson out of the picture, Derrick Coleman and sixth-round draft pick Spencer Ware are in the mix to start at fullback.

The Seahawks did not officially announce any roster cuts Friday.
