Earlier this offseason, Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison agreed to restructure his contract. It included a pay cut for 2017, but also added another year to the deal, locking him down through the 2018 season.
Robison said Friday he thinks it will be the last NFL contract he ever signs.
“I really do believe that probably at the end of those two years, it will be it,” Robison told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “It’ll be about my time to call it (a career), but we’ll see how I feel when I get there. … But I would say that more than likely, that will probably be the time that I’m going to have to lay things to the side and get ready for life after football.”
Robison turns 34 on April 27 and has spent his entire 10-year career with the Vikings. His extension all but assures he’ll retire having only played for one franchise – a rarity in today’s NFL.
“It’s never been about the money, it’s about making sure I give (the Vikings) the best chance to win and bring a championship to Minnesota,” Robison said.
