Fullback Michael Robinson says it's likely he will retire. The veteran told StateCollege.com that it's unlikely he'll find work at his age and his position. "There really isn't a market for 31-year fullbacks headed into their ninth year in the league," Robinson said over the weekend. "Economically speaking, I understand that. I'm going to give myself a little time after the draft to let teams see how their rosters shake out. After seeing what happens, I'm probably going to call it a career."

Tight end Zach Miller made a 10-yard catch, and fullback Michael Robinson had a 7-yard grab.
