He still has 2 years left on his 5 yr contract he signed in 2014. So essentially he has a 6yr contract with the Vikes.

He's outplayed his current contract surprisingly and deserved to get paid. Paying someone with two years left on their contract is a bad precedent to set though.

He's starting to get the recognition he deserves, however I still think he's underrated overall. As a pure pass rusher he's close to elite.

He's a good player, good keep for the Vikings here.

I dont understand why Griffen fell so far anyway. I thought he would have been reasonable for the Colts at 31.

Minnesota getting pass rushers Griffen and Hunter, who have a good shot of being the best combo ends, in the mid rounds. In an era where most of the top pass rushers are going top 15. Kudos

Seconded. Zimmer's also a stud, so there's that. But Hunter/Griffin is easily top-three.

Gotta pay pass rushers before Mack gets paid...

Props to him; good player, as others have said.

Addressing the extension though, I'm not a fan. Someone recently posted a list of the Vikings' roster from most expensive to least expensive player (for 2017 season). I have to say I don't like this move or any of te recent free agency moves. We are giving Sam $18 million, Riley Rieff is our highest paid player besides the starting QB, Mike Remmers who is a below average tackle is near the top, and now Griffen is signed until... He's what? 36-37? As a pass rusher? Ehhh, I hope the extension is easy enough to get out of.

Well-deserved payday, but like OleXmad said, you gotta wonder if it'll get abused.

Mack is getting paid....Just not that much.

the only thing getting abused from this will be Chicago's, Green Bay's and Detroit's QBs.

And he's not even our best pass-rushing DE.

Wonder what Hunter will want.
