Everson Griffen

Many of us believe Everson Griffen will be back in purple this season. I'm one of those people. As many recall, the Vikings had engaged in contract talks during the beginning of last season and stalled. Some people are thinking Griffen is asking for a hefty contract even though he doesn't have much of a track record and has only started a few games in his career. While I was going through my daily Vikings websites for news and such, I stumbled on an article written by Ben Goessling on ESPN. He stated that there would be a market for Griffen because of his versatility. He has the ability to play a 4-3 DE and can play 3-4 OLB. Everson has dropped into coverage and did have an experiment at LB a few years ago. But the most interesting point of his article was that Everson may be seeking more of a short term deal and be able to test the market again when his 28 or so and still in his prime. He predicted the Vikings resign him to a "prove it" 2 year contract worth 8-10 million. Personally, I think it will take a little more than 4 or 5 million a year, so I would say the Vikings should try to sign him to a 2 year deal worth 11-13 million, with 5 million gtd. If I were them, I would make it so his cap hit this year is like 5 million, then in 2015 he'll have a cap hit of around 7 if the team decides to not cut him since this year of his contract wouldn't be fully gtd.
