  Vikings | Brian Robison production despite injuries    Thu Jan 31, 12:29 AM

Minnesota Vikings DL Brian Robison was nicked up for most of the season, but he still managed to be very productive. Robison played 887 of 1,198 gradable defensive snaps (74 percent) over 16 starts at left end. He posted a career-high 8.5 sacks while registering 56 quarterback pressures. He also matched a career best with three forced fumbles, all on strip-sacks. Robison might be a candidate for a contract extension next season.

Footballguys view: This will be tricky for the Vikings, because they correctly let Ray Edwards walk when he was a pricy free agent two years ago. The real value here might be lining up opposite Jared Allen, no matter the name of the player who gets that plum spot.
