Vikings bring back Brian Robison

Brian Robison

For most of his career, Vikings defensive end Brian Robison was known best for his Mamula-like performance at the 2007 NFL Scouting Combine.  (And his world class shot put ability.)

Now he can be known for getting a surprising lucrative second contract.

Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports Robison re-signed in Minnesota on a three-year deal worth $14.1 million, with a $6.5 million signing bonus.

They are paying on future production because Robison hasn’t been a huge factor as a pro.  His best season came as a rookie in 2007 with 4.5 sacks and 26 tackles.

Robison played as a pass-rush specialist last year, but could be asked to start now with Ray Edwards likely to leave town.

    This kid has a great motor. He is a quality player who will be a very productive starter given the chance. I believe the size of the contract shows how much the Vikes think of him.

    I’m sorry, what is the problem with the NFL player compensation system? Moronic decisions by the owners plays a big role. DirecTV: please give me the CFL! Robison’s contract is worth $542,307.69 per tackle in 2007. A great bargain!

    Who?

    I can’t wait to hear from the Viking fans that said Hawk got too much money.

  4. svenftw says: Mar 4, 2011 12:06 AM

    the guy makes plenty of plays with very limited time on that d-line. a bit steep, but i’m glad he stayed put.

  5. plumber52 says: Mar 4, 2011 12:10 AM

    As a Vikings fan i thought he should have been statrtina all along. Ray Edwrds is nothing special.

  6. bmcgrath2 says: Mar 4, 2011 12:17 AM

    Holy crap, I did not see this coming. Way too much money for Robison.

    So I guess we can count the Vikings out for taking a DE at #12. No way they will tie up money in a rookie DE when they have Allen’s monster contract and Robison’s new deal.

    I think this move shows, especially with the talent at DE in this years draft, that the Vikings will do whatever they can to move down in the 1st round to recoup that 3rd rounder from you know what.

  7. jebdamone says: Mar 4, 2011 12:23 AM

    wow, i really like Robison and am glad he is staying with the vikings but that seems a little steep and also makes him the starter opposite JA. not sure he is up to the continued task.

  8. cameran0804 says: Mar 4, 2011 12:30 AM

    shaggytoodle, the packers didnt pay hawk what hes worth instead they cut his down syndrome looking ass and then resigned him for less money. I guess thats how the fudge pack treats there captians!!!

  9. jgsykes1110 says: Mar 4, 2011 12:35 AM

    Decent back up plan if Ray Edwards leaves, but hopefully the new CBA prevents that from happening.

  10. jgsykes1110 says: Mar 4, 2011 12:41 AM

    Well, this is one Packer fan that thinks this will turn out to be a pretty good deal before its over. Hes a good player and he very well could end up earning every penny of it.

    The price may have been a little steep but they are obviously paying him for future production, its not really a good policy to pay players based on past production only. If the player doesn’t have a bright future in your eyes than why pay him at all let alone for things hes done in the past.

    Really like this guys tenacity and think he will be a very good starter for the Vikes. Reminds me of Aaron Kampman a little bit, just needs the opportunity to play more.

    cameran0804 –

    Keeping Robison is a smart move for the Vikings. He’s not outstanding, but he makes plays. Just like Hawk.

    By the way, the Packers just won a Super Bowl making moves like the one they just made with Hawk. Go ahead and talk trash, it seems cutting their “captain” helped him sign on long term.

    I forget, how many Super Bowls have the Vikings won in the last ten years by spending money on free agents and trading away draft picks? None? Maybe drafting and keeping their own guys will work out better for them.

  15. snoop24 says: Mar 4, 2011 7:24 AM

    What Super Bowl?? With a lockout about to happen, the Subpar Bowl never happened!

  16. JimmySmith says: Mar 4, 2011 7:41 AM

    I just wish I could bottle the water in Winter Park and start serving it to my clients so I might get overpaid like this. The Viking brain trust (and I use that term lightly, very lightly) must be on some sort of week long drinking binge to hand out contracts like $10 mil to a LB who didn’t make the pro bowl, first round FA tenders to players that wouldn’t even start on other NFL teams and now this.

    If I were Ziggy, I would immediately start a drug testing program, for the personnel dept.

    First I agree with the salary system in the NFL. However in this scenario I think you may have missed the point. The point is he has been the backup a situational player since being drafted. He is now going to be the starter with Ray Edwards leaving.

    Again I agree with your statement in general but the teams also have ot pay people for their role. Unfortunately for the Vikings they are in a bad situation (that is where the ownership and FO portion of your post is accurate). As mentioned above Ray Edwards is leaving and they are having off the field issues with their other DE, Griffen. Therefore they are in a bind and keeping Robison is a major priority. It’s all about supply and demand.

  19. ejmat2 says: Mar 4, 2011 7:57 AM

    @ tangysizzl

    Excellent post. It’s funny you compared him to Kampman. Same type of player and he reminds me a lot of him too. Of course, Robison has a lot to prove before we can actually compare him to Kampman but I always stated the same thing. Their styles are pretty similar.

  20. kotapug says: Mar 4, 2011 8:02 AM

    How can people complain about a player getting paid on future production that has shown promise in his limited role. Look at what rookies get paid and have shown nothing in the NFL ? There are plenty of players that get over paid for past production so why not take a slight risk on a young player that should only get better with more playing time.

  21. nflconfidential says: Mar 4, 2011 8:17 AM

    I think its a little unfair to use the Mamula-type workout warrior lable with Robison. He was a 4th round pick. Hardly comparable when Mamula was a 1st round bust. Robison can be used on 3rd downs at defensive tackle and often times did so to replace Pat Williams on pass rushing situations. He’s valuable as a pass rusher

  22. moezilla says: Mar 4, 2011 8:57 AM

    Can someone please explain to JimmySmith that the pro-bowl is a popularity contest.

    Greenway provided the blueprint on how to not make a Pro Bowl by ONLY leading his conference in total tackles and leading the NFL in tackles for loss.

    Come on Chad, put out a little bit. Maybe perform an emergency triple heart by-pass with a plastic spoon on an obese Packer fan during a TV timeout, something, ANYTHING to prove you’re worth a Pro Bowl nod.

  23. ilpackerbacker says: Mar 4, 2011 8:58 AM

    Brian who, LOL? Gotta love the Vikings. Thanks, Favre, for using them as a pawn in your weak little “stick it to Ted” war, which you lost in a million ways and set them back at QB for at least another 3 or 4 years. The Vikings overall talent pool sucks.

    Meanwhile, Ted and the Packers have the best in the entire NFL. They don’t even have a rich owner, LOL.

  24. 22deuce says: Mar 4, 2011 9:05 AM

    I’m glad the Vikes kept Robison. He’s done well in his limited playing time. He has been more productive than Edwards per play by far. Hope his run defense has improved, which kept him behind edwards. could’ve come cheaper.

  25. rugdog100 says: Mar 4, 2011 9:14 AM

    shaggytoodle… Hawk got too much money.

  26. vikefan says: Mar 4, 2011 9:36 AM

    Not smart by Vikinings IMO. Although a good decent player to keep around, dont see him as a starter taking Edwards place. But if he does, i would say it is even steven, no upgrade or downgrade. Dont think he is any better than what he has done in last 2 years as a very good backup playining situational football. One wonders how you can achieve this and even start thinking bout Greenway, Peterson, Henderson, or anyone else long term. Sorry Vikes, very scary decision on this one.

  27. shaggytoodle says: Mar 4, 2011 11:00 AM

    he got 10 Mil gur, I am assuming that is because he was due that next season, so they gave it to him in a bonus.

    I am going to go out on a limb and say that Hawk who unlike Robison, also had other teams trying to acquire her services, even though only being released for less than 24 hours. That is going to help him get leverage and maybe get a couple more bucks.

    He hasn’t missed a game due to injury since being drafted and didn’t let the GB defense come unglued after losing a bunch of players. When you have players do that and they help you win a superbowl they do get rewarded, just like coaches and GMs, but I am sure thats something the Viking fans don’t really understand.

    Cue the thumbs down.

    ——————————–
    Bad situation for the Vikes. I can agree there. But this contract isn’t really breaking any banks. It’s a $14.1M dollar deal. $6.5 of that is bonus which only counts a percentage towards a cap if there is one. The other 7.6M is spread over 3 years which isn’t that bad.

    Robison will probably be a solid contributor. He has better skills in some aspects over Edwards and some that aren’t as good. I think Edwards was good at stopping the run and is able to pressure the QB. I also think he can read a play at this point better than Robison whether it will be a pass or run. The problem with Edwards is I think he could have finished more plays in which Robison can. With the DL that Edwards had playing with him there is no reason why he didn’t finish more plays and have more sacks. He had good games here and there but that’s it. IMO he underachieved and is really only known for the playoff game he had against Dallas.

    Robison can be a very good DE if, a big if, he can learn to play the screen pass better and decide whether or not it will be a pass or a run quicker. IMO, Robison has more heart than Edwards and if given the chance he can be an upgrade over Edwards. Edwards can run his mouth a lot but really, what has he done? He didn’t even come close to living up to his own standards of breaking the season sack record. That’s from his own mouth when the Vikings obtained Allen. He hasn’t even had a double digit sack regular season.

    Ha ha ha! Oh my! This is too good…

    How in the world can vike fans find this acceptable? What is that 4.5 mil to a second string guy? I think Bishop makes just slightly more and he’s a guy who starts and makes a difference on the field.

    All I can think is that the schism is so bad and the players hate being there so much the organization has to essentially turn to bloated mercenary like contracts to field a team.

    Cause I’ll be honest, this guy would play for little over league minimum in Green Bay and be happy. But what would be your price if you were forced to be on the vikes? You’re not going to win anything, their dome is deflated, overall facilities are garbage – no better than LA Fitness club, nobody respects them, and the chance they win a Super Bowl?

    When you play for Minny, you play for stats and money – not for glory.

    This seems like a “WE have to do something” for the purple smurfs………..$ 10 Million for Greenway? Can’t resign Rice……..You’ll have trouble resigning Petersen…….. The Williams wall is no more, Let go of Tavaris the QB in waiting for how many years………….You guys got a place to play next year? Oh that’s right, you don’t own a stadium, you just rent. WOW, just WOW…how the never beens have fallen and keep falling……..who knows, maybe Donovan will be available

    ——————————-
    And you first paragraph shows you didn’t read the entire story. Yes he WAS a second string. However, that is about to change. The part you obviously don’t understand is he will now be the starter and they are now thin on that side of the line. Therefore Viking fans have no choice but to accept it because it is the situation they are in.

    Just remember this. GB is 2 years out of being 6-10 yourself so don’t act like one bad season says a lot. It’s one season! Things change quickly in the NFL and the Vikings still have enough talent if they can sign a decent QB to be contenders again. Keep thinking what you want. Your post shows how truly uninformed you really are.

    So you are saying the Vikings have no chance to be a contender with a decent QB? Really? They were just in the NFCCG LAST YEAR. See how quickly things change in the NFL. Just like you were in last place 4-12 in 2005 then two years later made the NFCCG. Why? Not because they were terrible or not talented. Because things didn’t bounce their way that year. It happens.

    I may need glasses. As a 44 year old the eyesight isn’t what it used to be. But I also know how to watch football and make unbiased statements unlike you and others that do nothing but want to slam a team because that’s the only way to get off.

    Yeah that’s a great comparison. We all know the problems with rookie salaries (sarcasm). The differnce and problem with your attempt to prove something is Brian Robison has been a solid contributor for 4 years and even though his numbers aren’t huge he still shows he can do the job when he had he opportunity. OTOH Williamson and James were drafted and made that money because of the situation. Unfortunately rookie salaries are based upon where they are drafted and what the person before and after make. Not because the Vikings wanted to pay them that much.

    So again, I say his role has changed. He is now a starter vs a back up. Hence, the reason why he is getting more money to resign with a team that needs his services. It’s called supply and demand.

  43. goombar2 says: Mar 4, 2011 5:55 PM

    Where to begin with vike fans… OK, see there’s this salary cap thing and you can’t go over it so it limits the players you have. A team is forced to strategically decide whether to go with mostly above average players with a few elite guys sprinkled in and bring in younger cheaper guys through the draft.

    But if you pay you’re average guy really good money, and your really good players elite money… Well, you run out of money against the cap. Doesn’t matter if the owner is Mr. Money bags and wants to spend the moon.

    What it forces is team unity. Folks that might take a couple dollars less, but play for titles.

    In the vike’s case it’s just a way to get folks to join the team otherwise who would?

Just a worthless meaningless piece of paper that says u own part of something that no one cares about. Plz dont rest on history, it starts today, all teams are 0-0 when next season starts. It is the same every year, once super bowl is over, its all 0-0 getting ready for the next season again. Love how all u pack morons always fight based on the past.

    Spoken again like a true vikingfan… The fans of the Green Bay Packers Inc. buy the stock out of love of tradition to excellence and it’s something we cherish and can hand down to our children. So I doubt highly I’d ever be able to explain those concepts to you.

    See, in life, not everything is about the god almighty dollar. Something’s you just can’t buy, like heart, integrity, honesty, and conviction. These are old concepts that seem to be getting traded away for the fast buck scam artists.

    This is where Pack fans and vike fans differ greatly. We, as fans who own stock, have the right to have our voices heard. It is the mandate of the people who are the driving force to greatness. You have to hope Ziggy the fat cat gives a crap about football while he kicks it in his NYC multi-million dollar condo.

    And as far as history, we are the current reigning SB champions. Who are you again? With your tough talk, we must have faced you in the playoffs? Let’s see, Philly, Atlanta, Chicago, Pitt… Help me out here?

    Nope not a meaningless piece of paper it can be sold back to the Packers for what is was bought for breaking even on a stock isn’t to bad nowadays
    The Packers don’t spend money foolishly guess that worked ok for the Packers Sure Ziggy has spent alot of money how’s that worked out for you?
    Your arguments are as STUPID AS YOU ARE.
    Your Games are sold out WE have to beg borrow and steal to sell out a playoff game
    You guys are cheap and win the Super Bowl we spend alot and are losers we be smart
    Four Super Bowls baby of course the Packers are proud of the history we have a CHAMPIONSHIP ONE you don’t no debate just facts.
    Green Bay Packers past champions and present ones Minnesota Vikings bare Lombardi Trophy case and no home stadium.
    Here are some teams with more Superbowl Championships than you
    The Jets
    The Chiefs
    The Buccaneers
    The Saints
    The Rams
    The Bears
    The Ravens
    The Baltimore Colts
    The Indianapolis Colts
    The Saints and Buccaneers have more Lombardi’s than the Vikings that is too funny
    The Packers scored more points in the 1st half of Super Bowl 45 than the Vikings did in 3 entire Super Bowls combined
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    Justify yourself loser that’s all you have considering it has been 33 years your team has been there and I would bet # 46 is not the charm

    Possibly break even on stock, laughable, your voice is heard, go ahead call Ted , see how much he listens to you!! OMG u r so funny and dillusional, keep drinking so you have your excuse, we will all accept it. At least we have an owner that cares and is willing to spend to try and get the best. No it did not work for Daniel Snyder or Jerry Jones, but Zygi Wilf is very new to this business and he will learn and have management make smarter decisions, right now our cubbard is very bare from a very self obsessed former head coach that was more concerned bout making players fit his system than putting players in best position to win. We have a long way to go to fill all needs but at least I am a realistic and dont post mind boggling banter & dillusional propoganda bout my team.

    Wow, all you put down is stuff that’s nonsense!

    As a stock holder I wouldn’t call Ted Thompson. He’s the general manager and he has a job to do. I call Mark Murphy and before him his predecessor Bob Harlan. And yes, I’ve talked to Harlan and met with Murphy. Murphy rarely takes phone calls (he’s just been too busy with the CBA but that’s supposed to change). That’s what stock gets you, a little respect and understanding.

    Both are good men and love Packer football as much as me. They don’t need to hide and are open to the public in general. Both openly talk about their vision and goals and once a year have a stockholders meeting. There you can see them and talk to them too after the meeting.

    In Green Bay there is a healthy division of power. Murphy runs the business end of the Packers and he let’s Thompson run the product on the field. Unlike in vikeland where who knows who’s in control of even the roster? Was it Spielman? Was it Chilly? Zygi was calling some of the shots too!

    You’re so brainwashed into this owner stuff, you just don’t get it. You really think Zygi Wilf is a viking fan? The dude is from New Jersey! What ties exactly does he have to the vikings? Heck, he hardly comes to vikeland and hates it here.

    The only thing Zygi cares about is money. And cheap circus stunts like bringing in Favre make money. Anybody with any common sense knew he wasn’t the future of the team and it was highly unlikely he’d bring a SB to vikeland. But boy he brought in ratings and sold idiots jerseys for a couple years!

    why are packers fans even commenting on this? how was it stupid Brian robison is a good football player who plays the game hard and with passion. a great athlete and he should have been starting this whole time. his best season was his rookie season? how much did he play? it seems like whenever he gets in he makes a difference. or a nice play. and he played tackle on passing downs. as far as his run defense he said once he is shocked people say his run game needs work because in college people said his run was good and his pass needed work. he will do good. so all the packer fans can shut up
