Vikings re-signed RE Everson Griffen to a five-year, $42.5 million contract with $20 million guaranteed.
This is shaping up as a highly-paid 2014 free agent class. Retaining Griffen is still a critical maneuver for GM Rick Spielman, whose defensive line has underwhelmed recently and crumbled almost entirely in 2013. DTs Kevin Williams and Fred Evans are free agents, NT Letroy Guion was released, and RE Jared Allen isn't coming back. Griffen has been "blocked" by Allen and LE Brian Robison the past several seasons, but still managed 13.5 sacks over the last two in a clear-cut reserve role, and just turned 26 in December. He's a high-ceiling prospect with 2014 breakout potential in IDP leagues. Look for Griffen to take over as Minnesota's every-down right defensive end, replacing Allen. Mar 9 - 1:25 PM
