Cornerback gets extended
The Vikings have given Cedric Griffin a contract extension.The Vikes do avoid having him as a free agent next season. He was reliable in the second half of the season. Griffin says he is happy where the team is headed. As long as he continues to improve on his play at the corner. There were many mocks saying that the corner back position was a team need for this years draft. In 2008, Griffin led the Vikings' secondary and ranked second on the team in tackles with 100. He had one interception in the regular season and one in the wild-card playoff loss to Philadelphia.
I am just not quite sure about this signing at this moment. He is a decent CB at the tackling aspect of the game. Now this season, we hope that he can be reliable to preventing receivers snagging the ball over his head.
What do you think about the contract extension that is believed to be 3 years?
