"I want to be on the field..." Brian Robison calls the Power Trip

It's been nearly two months of silence for former Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison on social media, with the real media and anything that has to do with football.

This morning on KFAN and The Power Trip Morning Show, B-Rob broke his silence and shared some of his thoughts on getting released by the Vikings, what life looks like today and his future with the game of football.

Frankly, football hasn't been a giant part of his life since getting let go by the Vikings before the season. His days have been filled with spending time with his kids, his wife and fishing...lots and lots of fishing.

"I've just been living my life," Robison told KFAN Friday morning. "I've got a lot more time with my kids...I got on fishing trips, get up at 4 o'clock in the morning and workout then go fishing all day."

Still, that's not to say that he's closed the door on returning to the field this season or in the future. To date, there's been no talk of "retirement".

"If I'm being 100% honest with you, I want to be on the field," Brian said. "But it's got to be the right situation for me and my family to do that. I don't want to drag them across the country. It's just got to be one of those deals that has got to be the right situation."

He wouldn't say who it was, but Robison did share that a team did show interest shortly after the Vikings cut him, but it wasn't the right fit.

"I wrote that one off quickly."

Keeping his options open, re-weighing his priorities for this stage in his life, it's clear that Brian still has a special affinity for the state of Minnesota and the Vikings organization. 

"I didn't get the farewell tour that I wanted," Robison explained. "I didn't get to say goodbye to the fans. But the support I've gotten from the fans, it was very overwhelming."

For now, B-Rob waits. He waits for the right situation, with the right team and the right opportunity...and he probably does it from the edge of his bass boat, with a rod & reel in his hand.
