Everson Griffen Will Tryout for Vikings on Wednesday
Just when you think we’ve finally reached the end of an era, Everson Griffen pops back into our life to let us know that he’s not done with the Minnesota Vikings yet. Darren Wolfson and Chris Long (both of KSTP – CH 5) are reporting tonight that Griffen has a workout scheduled at TCO Performance Center with the Vikings tomorrow (Wednesday).

Minnesota has a starting defensive end spot still available, opposite Danielle Hunter. But at this point, most of us thought they’d pick from what they already have in-house. Stephen Weatherly, DJ Wonnum, Jalyn Holmes and Hercules Mata’afa have battled for that position all of camp.
The Everson Griffen + Minnesota Viking story has been a rollercoaster since he left the organization and signed with the Dallas Cowboys this time last year. We’ve covered it all, which includes Kirk Cousins shade and many Twitter regrets. But, never say never.
