Griffen signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract with the Vikings on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The 26-year-old has been handsomely rewarded, after playing in all 48 games over the past three seasons, with an impressive 17.5 sacks during that span. This likely ensures Jared Allen won't be back with the team and that the Vikings will seek out a replacement to start opposite Griffen in the draft.
Griffen could start at defensive end Sunday against Green Bay with Brian Robison questionable due to back spasms, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
