Robison signed a one-year extension that takes his contract through 2018, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Robison agreed to reduce his 2017 base salary from a non-guaranteed $5.3 million to a fully-guaranteed $3.9 million, with the number then dropping to $3.2 million (including $1.25 million guaranteed) for 2018. He'll turn 34 in April and has never recorded double-digit sacks in a season, but his run defense and consistency have long made him an asset to the Vikings. Robison has played 15 or 16 games in each of his 10 NFL seasons, recording 4.5 or more sacks each of the past six years while starting every contest he's played.
Robison had a sack and a QB hit in Sunday's win at Jacksonville. Robison has been a consistent force on the defensive line all season, but he's been hot lately with three sacks in his last four games.
Robison had a sack and two total tackles in Sunday's win over Arizona. Robison had gone five games without a sack, which corresponded with Minnesota's four-game losing streak. It looks like he and the defensive line are back on track.
Robison has two sacks and three quarter back hits in Sunday's win over Houston. Robison has benefited from the overall defense's play as he's getting more opportunities to reach the quarterback. He has four sacks and two forced fumbles. He could be well on his way to meeting his career high of nine sacks.
Robison had two tackles, a sack, a tackle for a loss and forced a fumble in Sunday's win over Green Bay. Robison remains a steady presence on the defensive line and should get another five to eight sacks as he has at least 4.5 each of the last five seasons.
