Griffin Is Out, Too

Well, I have said all offseason long that I was 51% sure that Cedric Griffin and Steve Hutchinson would be back with the Vikings.

It appears I was 100% wr-wr-wr-mistaken.

As mentioned in the post below this one, guards Steve Hutchinson and Anthony Herrera have been released by the Vikings and now we know that cornerback Cedric Griffin is a goner, as well.

“It was a tough decision as we move forward and prepare for the upcoming season and the future of our organization,” said Leslie Frazier.  “All three individuals have meant a great deal to the Vikings organization both on and off field over the years. We wish all of them the best and thank them for their service to the Minnesota Vikings.”

The Vikings have cleared roughly $13 million in cap space by making these three moves which is expected to give them over $20 million in cap space going into free agency, which starts this week.

We will continue to monitor this fluid situation, but it appears the Vikings are done making moves for today.

Maybe you’ll redeem yourself on your EJ Henderson prediction… or not.

By the way, this being wrong thing…it gets easier. In fact Fragile has begun tracking at about 70%.

At least you found something to do while all that snow had you home bound all winter. Are you sure you’re not related to Coach Buds ? That old bastard seems to have a new grandchild about every 7 weeks.

Opps, he hates when I insult his mother. No offense to Mrs Grant, a fine women, just a figure of speech Buds.

Hello Charles,

Don’t encourage him. Another 5 years and this is what the Alaskan Warwas will sound like.

Haha guys good stuff. I’m not surprised at all with these three getting cut, Rick doesnt seem to be the sentimental type. The numbers just didnt add up, their salaries vs. production and injury concerns. I’ll miss all three of them but it’s time to blow up the roster and have some cap room to move on.

had to happen I guess, I liked Herrera. When he was healthy he had a nasty streak

Too bad about Cedric, he just didn’t have the exceptional talents needed to overcome these injuries.
Kinda the same story for Big Johnny when they gather around the bonfire for a weiner roast

[…] Cedric Griffin needed to go. From Adam’s Offseason Preview column, “[Griffin] had a miserable season in which he looked slow as can be, was held out at times for disciplinary reasons, was benched, was short and snippy with the local media, and had an overall bad season.  He ended up with 67 tackles, nine defended passes, and three forced fumbles.  He was flagged nine times and gave up five touchdowns.  Griffin ended the season questioning his own future with the team.” (Grade: 5/5) […]
