  Vikings | Signing Michael Griffin    Wed Mar 9, 06:04 PM

Free-agent FS Michael Griffin (Titans) is signing with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, March 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Griffin spent close to a decade with the Titans before they decided to move on. He may not start for the Vikings, but he'll at least give them valuable veteran depth at the position.

  Titans | Michael Griffin released    Tue Feb 9, 12:28 PM

Tennessee Titans FS Michael Griffin was released Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: A move that was expected for two-fold. First, Griffin isn't the same player he used to be and his play has been declining for quite some time. Second, the move saves $6.5 million for the Titans in cap space. He may not get a long-term deal, but there should be a few teams interested in adding Griffin for veteran help.
