Vikings player Everson Griffen in disturbing incident at home – Deadspin

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer addressed the media. He was asked if Griffen was safe and replied, “I don’t know.

Dalvin Cook said, “That’s my brother. I just want him to be OK.”


Griffen was originally drafted by the Vikings in 2010. He spent 10 seasons with them, making four Pro Bowls and recording double-digit sack totals three times. He played for the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys in the 2020 season before returning to the Vikings for 2021. He has played in nine of the Vikings 10 games, recording five sacks, 10 quarterback hits and a forced fumble.

Griffen had a public battle with mental health in 2018 that resulted in the Vikings banning him from the practice facility and missing five games. During that time he was transported by ambulance to a mental health facility.


This is a developing story.
