Minnesota Vikings re-sign DE Everson Griffen

This move was made right before the start of free agency and it was a real head scratcher. However, I’ve held off on grading it until now because there was a chance that the increased salary cap meant we might see a lot of head scratching deals this off-season and I like to grade on a curve and grade moves against each other.

Grading the Vikings Re-Signing of Everson Griffen

While it was somewhat expected the Vikings officially re-signed defensive end Everson Griffen to a five-year, $42 million contract, with 13 million fully guaranteed. Griffen has been a role player during his 4 years in Minnesota, but with the departure of Jared Allen he will finally get to show Viking fans what he has to offer.
