Brian Robison accepts a pay cut, gets another year on his contract

Defensive end Brian Robison has agreed to a pay cut, signing a one-year extension with the Vikings that technically keeps him under contract through 2018 but slashes his 2017 base salary by $1.4 million. Under his previous deal, Robison had a 2017 base salary of $5.3 million. His new base salary, which is now fully guaranteed, is $3.9 million.

That said, he was clear that simply reaching the playoffs is no longer reason to celebrate. “Not anymore,” he said. “My expectations are a lot higher.” […]

Shaun Hill, who started the season opener last year before making way for Bradford, is a free agent. I was told a couple weeks ago that...

Bartley tore his triceps in training camp six months ago, and while he hasn’t logged a second of ice time in 2016-17, he already has one statistical category locked up. Bartley is the […]
