The on-again, off-again dance between Everson Griffen and the Minnesota Vikings appears to be back on again.
According to Darren Wolfson and Chris Long of KSTP in the Twin Cities, Griffen will be trying out for the Vikings on Wednesday.
Griffen, as we know, spent the first ten seasons of his NFL career with the Vikings after they selected him in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. During his time with the Vikings, he put up 74.5 sacks, many of them after he took over the starting role at defensive end in 2014. After the 2019 season, he signed with the Dallas Cowboys just before the start of the regular season, and was traded to the Detroit Lions in the middle of the season.
Griffen has, reportedly, been looking to get back to Minnesota since last season ended, though it appeared that those ambitions were at least temporarily put on hold when he made some not-so-nice comments about Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins. Now, however, it appears that’s all water under the bridge with the news that #97 is heading to Eagan tomorrow to work out for Mike Zimmer and company.
What do you think of this, folks? Should the Vikings be interested in bringing Everson Griffen back into the fold?
