Everson Griffen ~ I was reminded this morning that he reworked his contract to help the Vikings this year assuring himself a chance at FA if he chose to~That would be very sad ~
For as good as the defense has been they could lose their edge~Who could replace his Wildman personality on defense ~ Is there a young defensive player ready to step up~I can’t think of another starter who could replace his pregame speeches or his firey talk on the field that always seems to set a fire under the other guys up ~
I know its a business and I get that ~ I just hope they have some we don’t know about who can replace his fire when the time comes~
He dropped his salary for this year from $10.9 mill to $6.4. Next year he’s due to make $12.9 and is under contract until 2022.
The new deal he signed allows him to be able to void the final three years of his contract after the 2019 season for increasing his playing time or sack numbers from what he accrued last season.
Through 6 games this year he’s around 30th at 3.0 sacks. If that doesn’t increase substantially I don’t think they will pay him $12.9 mill next season?
Thanks for that bit of info Stu~I thought he could void his contract regardless for reworking his deal~
With the team so tight against the cap next year Rob B. will have to work some magic on the 2020 cap or our Vikings may have to move on from some of our aging starts~
