The Vikings and the defensive end Everson Griffen are finalizing a “massive” four-year extension to keep him in Minnesota for the rest of his career, Ian Rapport of NFL Network reports via Kevin Patra of NFL.com.
It’s the second big deal for the former fourth-round pick out of USC, who signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract in 2014. With two years left on that deal, the Vikings are adding four more years, which will keep the 29-year-old Griffen in Minnesota through 2022.
Griffen earned 8.0 sacks in 2016 with 30.5 coming over the past three seasons, since he became a full-time starter in Minnesota.
