Veteran S Michael Griffin Signing One-Day Contract To Retire With Titans


Veteran S Michael Griffin will sign a one-day contract on Monday to retire as a member of the Titans, according to Jason Wolf.

“It was a blessing to play 10 years in this league. It wasn’t always easy, but it was always a good time,” Griffin told Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. “I wish I played every second of my career here. But I always felt like a Titan, even when I wasn’t a Titan. I’ll always remember playing in front of those fans in Nashville. I wish the current Titans a ton of success.”

Griffin, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Titans back in 2007. He spent nine years in Tennessee before he was released in 2016.

Griffin signed a one-year contract with the Vikings but wound up being among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. The Panthers later signed to a contract and he finished out the year in Carolina.

Unfortunately, Griffin didn’t catch on with a team last year and sat out the entire 2017 season.

For his career, Griffin recorded 592 tackles, 25 interceptions, 59 pass defenses, 11 forced fumbles, six recoveries, seven sacks and one defensive touchdown over the course of 10 seasons and 154 games played. He was a two-time Pro Bowl selection and a second-team All-Pro in 2010.
