By Anthony Caruso III | Editor
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen posted disturbing messages on social media. The one in question, he was holding a gun in a short clip.
The saga began early in the morning when Griffen claimed that people were trying to break into his home and shoot him.
“Yo, yo, yo,” he can be heard saying in the message. “I’m home. N **** s trying to bust me. I still have clips left. It’s my gun.
In the short video, he also dropped the name of his teammate Dalvin Cook.
“Representatives of the Vikings and the team’s mental health professionals have been on site at Everson Griffen’s home since early this morning and are cooperating with law enforcement,” the Vikings said in a statement. “Our only concern at this time is the safety and well-being of Everson and his family. We will have more comments when the time comes.
This isn’t the first time the 33-year-old has struggled with his sanity. In 2018, the Vikings ordered Griffen to undergo an assessment after worrying about his well-being.
He was a fourth-round pick for the Vikings in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has played most of his career with the Vikings.
Griffen first played for the team from 2010 to 2019. Then he left as a free agent, before signing with the Dallas Cowboys.
He was traded from the Cowboys to the Detroit Lions on October 27, 2020. The Cowboys received a sixth-round pick in 2021 that turned out to be Quinton Bohanna.
This season, Griffen has appeared in nine games, including six starts. He made 15 tackles, including four for a loss and 10 quarterback hits.
He had 5.0 sacks with 1 forced fumble.
