Michael Griffin is still an unsigned franchise player, but unlike other unsigned franchise players, guys like Matt Forte, Dwayne Bowe, Ray Rice, and Drew Brees, Griffin is still attending the Titans’ minicamp. Minicamp is mandatory for all of those players under contract and since Griffin is technically not under contract, he doesn’t have to be there. In fact, he doesn’t have to report until Training Camp and he has until July 16th to sign his tender.
Nonetheless, Griffin is there, an obvious sign that he’d be fine playing out the season under his 6.2 million dollar tender if necessary. The fact that he has still yet to sign shows that he’s still hoping for a long term deal, but he’s being very civil about it. We’ll have to see if his civility gets him the long term deal he wants. He’s a very talented player and the Titans would obviously rather keep him than watch him hit the open market next offseason. He was ProFootballFocus’ 13th rated safety last season.
