Vikings Everson Griffen Threatened to Shoot Someone in Hotel

Vikings Everson Griffen Threatened to Shoot Someone in Hotel

In a statement, Minnesota Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said, "We are aware of the situation involving Everson Griffen and certainly concerned by what we have heard". We'll see what comes of the situation and how it affects his availability for IDP lineups.

The report states Vikings Player Development Director Leslie Pico said Everson "has been really struggling for the past few weeks". Griffen was reportedly threatening to assault staff members if he was not let into his room.

Police say the subject of the call left the building soon after police arrived, and was not detained.

Following the game, head coach Mike Zimmer said that Griffen is dealing with "a personal matter and I'm going to leave it at that". The suspect's name was redacted in the report, but sources confirmed to local media outlets that Griffen was the person in question.

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley , R-Iowa, said, however, "we aren't announcing the name for her safety" as a precaution. Few could argue with Grassley's claim that Mitchell, a registered Republican, boasts a wealth of experience.

Paul Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, has been talking about how Pogba could easily find a club if he is to exit the Theater of Dreams. Barcelona are likely to take full advantage, and may even launch a bid in the January transfer window.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported on Twitter that Griffen is being evaluated at a Twin Cities hospital and that concerns about his mental health predate this past weekend.

Griffen did not attend practice on Monday, either, and was listed on the Vikings' injury report as "knee/not injury related". "We are certainly focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family".

He did not play in Sunday's loss against the Buffalo Bills. He signed a $58 million, four-year contract extension in 2017 and had been named to the Pro Bowl each of the last three years. He started each of Minnesota's first two games. He recorded 21 tackles and had 13 sacks last season.

Griffen, 30, is in his ninth season with the Vikings, who made him a fourth-round draft pick in 2010 out of Southern California.
