Summary

Everson Griffen has been a staple of the Vikings defense since taking over for Jared Allen in 2014. His sack totals have slipped steadily down over the past two years as others along that defensive front have benefited from the attention opposing offenses have put upon stopping Griffen. The Vikings have discussed moving Griffen around on some snaps in 2017. When asked about this possibility, Griffen said, "I've been locking myself into just playing on the right side. ... It's just about being versatile and doing more. I'm just not a right end. I can play left end, I can play three-technique. I can do anything." If Griffin were to play inside for a high percentage of snaps, it might hurt his tackle totals. If Griffin moves inside only occasionally, it is not likely to significantly impact his 2017 output.
