Vikings Release Veteran S Michael Griffin From I.R. With Settlement


The Vikings officially released veteran S Michael Griffin from injured reserve on Wednesday with an injury settlement.

Griffin, 31, was entering the final year of his five-year, $35 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed when the Titans released him in a move that created $6.5 million in available cap space several months ago.

The Vikings later signed him to a one-year contract back in March before placing him on injured reserve last week.

In 2015, Griffin appeared in 15 games for the Titans and recorded 101 tackles, one sack, an interception, and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 77 safety out of 88 qualifying players.
