Vikings | Brian Robison wants to start

Thu, 30 Jun 2011 07:20:54 -0700

After backing up Minnesota Vikings DL Ray Edwards the past three seasons, DL Brian Robison wants to start - and he knows that probably means Edwards has to go. Edwards is looking to be paid more than the $14.1 million Robison received. "He deserves that payday, and at the same time, I feel like I deserve the right to start," Robison said. "I feel like I've fought every year for that right to start and haven't really got the shot that I deserve yet, and hopefully, now I'll get that shot and he'll go get his payday and we'll all be happy."

Vikings | Ray Edwards could focus on boxing

Fri, 20 May 2011 07:46:21 -0700

If the Minnesota Vikings try to hold onto restricted free-agent DL Ray Edwards with a tender, he could focus on a prospective boxing career. "I've openly said I won't play for the Vikings, because of the simple fact of my backup (DL Brian Robison) is getting paid 70 more percent than I am - there's no way I can do that to myself. I'd rather do what I love doing. I love doing football as well. But if there's nobody that's going to trade for me, I will be definitely focusing on boxing."
