The Minnesota Vikings have locked-up a very important piece of their defense for the foreseeable future.

Defensive End Everson Griffen will remain in purple until at least 2022. He has started all 47 games he's played in during the past 3 seasons and has 30.5 sacks during that time, with 8 last season and has been selected to the Pro Bowl twice.

No finical terms of the deal have been released or leaked at the time of publishing this blog, but know this, Griffen GOT PAID!! SKOL!
