It really depends on what you are worried about with your knees. If it's impact, use some good knee pads. On the other hand, if it's your ligaments in your knee, get to the gym.

The key to healthy knees is strong quads and hamstrings. Flexibility in your hamstrings is really helpful too. Do squats, lunges, step ups, box jumps, jump tucks, hamstring curls. Exercises that will strengthen your legs, will help save your knees.

I was wondering if you had any good exercise that you could direct me too, I have a few vague ideas on what I could do. But I would rather have some sort of direction I could work towards to.

Thanks again everybody for the support and help

You mentioned contact sports... by which I am assuming you mean football, hockey, or martial arts. If so you should be capable of doing the following works (they would be harder for someone who is not athletic).
