Per Ian Rapoport, Griffen will soon be signing a large, 4-year extension.

Everson Griffen is getting paid again.

The defensive end signed a four-year, $58 million contract extension Wednesday in a deal that includes $34 million in guarantees, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The Vikings confirmed the signing.


"Man, this means I'm a Vike for life," Griffen said, per the team's official website. "I appreciate the coaching staff, the ownership, the organization."

It's the second big deal for the former fourth-round pick out of USC, who signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract in 2014. With two years left on that deal, the Vikings are adding four more years, which will keep the 29-year-old Griffen in Minnesota through 2022.

Great to see a producer and leader will continue to be with the team for years to come. Rumor has it that Rhodes is also relatively close to an extension, lets hope it gets done!
