RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Griffen is among the riskier players in this range since he wasn't a high draft pick and heads into his first year as a starter, but the Vikings handed him a five-year, $42.5 million contract this offseason, which would seem to imply that they intend to work him to the bone in 2014. He has 4.65 wheels at 273 pounds, and he totaled 27 tackles and 5.5 sacks while playing roughly two-thirds of Minnesota's snaps in 2013. With Jared Allen gone to Chicago, more sacks should be up for grabs, and Griffen ought to push for around 1,000 snaps.

2013

Griffen will give the Vikings depth at DE in 2013.

2012

Griffen will be used at outside linebacker in training camp and will likely play most of his snaps at the position this season. He'll be a reserve linebacker and may only play on passing downs.

2010

A late pick at defensive end, Griffin has potential, but will start the season as a reserve.
