When reached by phone on Monday night, Koren Robinson said nothing is done yet. He said he's not in Seattle -- I actually asked if he was in town -- and that nothing is finalized. He did say to stay by my phone, though.
I asked him if it looks like something will get done with Seattle.
"It might," he said.
Robinson's agent did not return a phone message left earlier today.
Update at 10:20 p.m. There has been active dialogue between the Seahawks and Robinson's agent today. The fact that the discussion is taking place speaks to just how likely Robinson's return could be if he checks out physically. The reason is pretty simple. Robinson is pretty clearly the best option the Seahawks have on the list of wide receivers looking for a team because of his familiarity with the offense. The most significant hurdle would be if Seattle is willing to consider signing him given the baggage of his situation here. The fact that there has been dialogue with Robinson indicates that the Seahawks are willing to consider signing him. Now that obviously would be dependent upon Robinson's health, which presumably would include his sobriety.
"I am living that lifestyle," Robinson said in a phone interview last week.
Don't get too hung up on the exact specifics of Robinson's location. That doesn't really matter right now. What matters is where he'll be on Wednesday and right now there's every indication that there's a good chance he'll be practicing with the Seahawks.
