  Chiefs | Four tried out    Thu Sep 11, 09:19 AM

Free-agent LB Nick Barnett (Redskins), LB Desmond Bishop (Cardinals), LB Marvin Mitchell (Vikings) and OT Jason Weaver (Saints) tried out for the Kansas City Chiefs this week.

Footballguys view: Patching up your defensive front or offensive line during the season is never a good look. The Chiefs are in trouble and have to find some answers quickly though.

  Vikings | Everson Griffen moving back to DE    Mon Aug 13, 07:29 PM

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said LB Everson Griffen will be moving back to defensive end but will still see time as a linebacker in the nickel defense. Frazier said Griffen is being moved because LBs Erin Henderson and Marvin Mitchell are doing well during training camp.

Footballguys view: This move doesn't indicate an expanded role for Griffen in 2012. He'll work as a part time pass rusher, and will use us strength, leverage, and hustle to pressure opposing QBs.
