Ray Fittipaldo, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports San Francisco 49ers RB Michael Robinson said he will embrace his role as a running back.

Robinson added, "I won't resist the chance because I understand the way the world works. I think for you to be successful on any level you have to be a football player first. You can't just limit yourself to whatever role you want to play." He said he will be used as a third-down running back and a slot guy who would come out of the backfield to do some thing. The team has said they would give him a shot at quarterback.
