Summary

Undisclosed mental health issues forced Everson Griffen from the lineup for most of last year. It's hard to predict such things, but Griffen sounds like a man who has put this incident behind him. He told ESPN, "Am I back to myself? Yeah, I'm back to smiling, joking, that fun guy to be around, but I truly have an understanding of the things that I have to hold myself accountable with day in and day out. That's what I took upon myself this offseason to handle and make sure I got a good handle on that, to be able to come back with an open mind and ready to play football at a high level again." Griffen has been highly efficient in years past and should return to productivity opposite Danielle Hunter. Hopefully, fantasy general managers will enjoy a rebound to the tune of double digit sacks and 50 total tackles. (May 20)
