And that would be why there was no buzz. Nice!

Dan Kadar ‏@MockingTheDraft 51s
Good for Everson Griffen getting a big deal from the Vikings, per @RapSheet. Know he's working hard this offseason. Looks monstrous.

Probably close to 10M/year.

Predicted $7M before the cap went up and the market inflated.

Now I'll bet ~$45M/5 years.

Very glad they went long term, a 3 year bridging deal as some were recommending would have just put him back on the market at even higher prices at the age of 29.

I think he'll be so good that $9M will start to look like a bargain as prices generally rise over the next 5 years.

And this is a guy still trying to prove himself. He's not gonna sit back on this contract and get fat and happy. I think he's going to have a breakout season and play like a top 10 or top 15 even front defensive end. The next Greg Hardy.

Without knowing the details of the contract, I'm only cautiously optimistic, but I'm happy to have him back.

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 53s
Vikings re-signed DE Everson Griffin, as @rapsheet reported. Told it's a 5-year, $42.5 million deal that includes $20 mil gtd, per source.
