The Minnesota Vikings don’t have a lot of playmakers on the defensive side of the ball, but they do have a solid, young pass-rusher in defensive end Brian Robison.

And per the team’s website:

Robison, a Splendora, Texas native and product of the University of Texas, is in his seventh season with the Vikings after being selected with a fourth-round pick in 2007. He has played in 94 career games with 38 starts, assuming a full-time starting role in 2011.

In seven-plus seasons, Robison has 30.0 career sacks, a total that includes 16.5 since becoming a starter two seasons ago. His 8.5 sacks in 2012 was a career-high. Robison has 1.0 sack this season and leads the team in quarterback hurries with 11.
