Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen made headlines in the offseason by snagging a $42.5 million contract despite having only one career start. He has made headlines during the regular season by earning it.
After registering nine sacks in nine games, Griffen joined PFT Live to talk about the Vikings, his coach, Griffen’s performance, and other topics.

Griffen also talks about Adrian Peterson’s potential returning, and whether the locker room wants him back. (Here’s a hint, if you missed the headline: They do.)
