Will block for pay (cut)

Pro Bowl fullback Michael Robinson is back--and Marshawn's got him;
Robinson, 30, lost his spot on the team in August after missing the end of the preseason with an illness. He was set to earn a $2.5 million base salary if he started the season on Seattle’s roster, and his cut from the squad likely had to do more with finances than his skillset.
Through last season, Robinson had been an integral piece of Seattle’s rushing attack since he arrived in 2010, having already played four years for the San Francisco 49ers. In 2011, he earned a trip to the Pro Bowl despite carrying the ball just four times, instrumental in finding holes and blocking tacklers for running back Marshawn Lynch.
Maybe Lynch will share his Skittles.
