Bryan Robison plans to go out the way Chad Greenway did. And that’s play his entire career with the Minnesota Vikings.

He has a contract with the team that ends at the end of the 2018 season.

“I really do believe that probably at the end of those two years, it will be it,” he said to the St. Paul 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.”

He’s the longest tenured player on the Bikings roster. He was drafted in the same class as Adrian Peterson, who was released by the team earlier this off-season.

Robison has also restructured his deal and saved the team $1.8 million to remain with the team. This season will be his 11th with the franchise.

“This solidifies me to be able to retire as a Minnesota Viking,” he said. “I had a long talk with Rick Spielman. We were on the phone probably 45 minutes, just discussing it.”

The 34-year-old has started all 16 games this past season and had 28 tackles, 7.5 sacks, one pass deflection and three forced fumbles. He’s starter every game for the team over the past four seasons.
