Well instead of hitting the free agent market next season, Brian Robison was awarded a four year contract extension by the Minnesota Vikings.
The 30 year old defensive end out of the University of Texas has made a lot of noise between both College and Pro levels of football. At Texas, Robison played both defensive tackle and linebacker. This guy was a monster for that Longhorns defense.
In his final three seasons with the Horns, he picked up 66 tackles of losses and racked up 28 sacks. During the 2007 NFL draft, Robison was one of 10 players from the University of Texas who were drafted. Being a seven year veteran, he’s recorded 156 total tackles, 31 sacks and nine forced fumbles.
This season for the Minnesota Vikings he’s picked up a combined 10 tackles with 1 sack. He’s also recovered a fumble against the Chicago Bears just a couple of weeks ago and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown.
The decision to sign Robison for an additional four years is a wise choice for this organization. With Robison and Allen on the defensive line, they have a solid pass rush that has forced quarterbacks to make mistakes.
He’s sure to be a pro-bowl player sometime in his career.
