Everson Griffen News
Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman announced on Thursday that the team restructured the contract of defensive end Everson Griffen. Griffen was a fourth-round pick in 2010 and turned into a starter in 2014. He has 66.5 sacks (seventh in Vikings history) in 73 starts and 132 total games for Minnesota. Griffen stepped away in the 2018 season for five weeks to focus on his mental health, but he returned in Week 8 and is "in a very good place" now, according to Spielman. Over a full season, Griffen could easily return to double-digit sacks and be a force in IDP leagues.
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who has been away from the team to tend to his mental-health issues in recent weeks, is expected to return and play against the Saints in Week 8. Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle) is questionable to play. Griffen could be on a snap count, but his presence is a huge boost to the team's pass rush and is bad news for Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Brees could catch a break in the passing game, though, if Rhodes is unable to play.
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who has been away from the team since Sept. 20 to deal with his personal health, will resume activities with the team on Wednesday. It remains to be seen if Griffen will play in Week 8 against the Saints, but it's a step in the right direction for a player that had a career-high 13 sacks in 2017. When on the field, he's the team's best pass rusher and would give them a big boost if he were to return. In IDP leagues, Griffen is a difference-maker.
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen is not expected to return to the team "anytime soon," according to a league source. The Pro Bowl defensive end continues to tend to his mental health. Another source said Griffen "could be back next week or could never play again, you just don't know when it comes to mental health." The pass rusher has been away from the team since Sept. 20. It's a shame, since Griffen had become one of the team's best pass rushers. In IDP leagues, it's best to hold him for now until there is more clarity on the issue.
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen will not travel with the team and will not play on Thursday against the Rams, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Griffen is currently in the hospital being examined with serious mental-health issues. Its about him getting better. In the five years Ive been here, Ive always loved Everson," Zimmer said. There is no timetable for Griffen's return, so you'll have to make other plans if you own him in IDP leagues. Griffen had a career-high 13 sacks last year, so losing him for any amount of time will be a blow to Minnesota's pass rush. That's good news for Rams quarterback Jared Goff this week.
