Vikings reward DE Brian Robison with reported $28 million deal
Forget about Jared Allen. The Vikings on Wednesday showed just how much they want to hold onto defensive end Brian Robison.
Defensive end Brian Robison entered this season coming off two years in which he was awfully productive. That's probably why the Vikings now have decided to reward him with a new contract.
On Wednesday, the team announced that it was securing him with a contract extension, and according to Adam Caplan, it’s a deal worth four years and $28 million with $13 million guaranteed.
Funny, the team has another defensive end that promises to be expensive and also is in the final year of his contract. What does this mean for that guy?
From 2011-12, Robison combined for 16.5 sacks, and last year, he added seven defended passes, by far a career-high. This season, Robison has 10 total tackles and one sack in four games, but he also leads the team in quarterback hurries with 11.
It’s worth noting that in 2011-12, Allen combined for 34 sacks. But remember, Allen is also 32 years old, while Robison is two years younger.
