Everson Griffen threatened to shoot someone at hotel

  • Everson Griffen is one of the highest paid defensive ends in the NFL

Concerned staff waited for police in an office.

No police report was filed, and Minneapolis police told ESPN that the situation did not warrant a further investigation.

Griffen agreed to leave the hotel after police arrived and no weapon was ever brandished, according to multiple reports.

Everson Griffen, a 3-time Pro Bowler who plays defensive end for the Vikings, was reportedly involved in two incidents over the weekend, according to Fox affiliate KMSP in Minnesota.

General manager Rick Spielman said the team was "certainly concerned" by the incident and now focused on Griffen's well-being.

Panthers sign S Eric Reid
The Carolina Panthers (2-1) signed Reid on Thursday, posting videos and images touting the new addition to their defense. The 49ers reportedly made a run at bringing Reid back into the fold before the safety decided on Carolina.

Coach Mike Zimmer called it a "personal matter" when asked why Griffen wasn't in attendance for Minnesota's loss to Buffalo. "We are now focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family", the Vikings said of Griffen in a statement.

On Monday, Griffen was listed as DNP on the simulated practice injury report with a "knee/non-football injury".

The Minneapolis Police Department redacted Griffen's name from the police report as the "person of interest" left immediately, was not ID'd, and no arrest was made.

Griffen had been declared out of Sunday's game on Friday because of a knee injury but injured players usually attend home games.

The Vikings themselves have since released a statement indicating that they're concerned about the incident in question and anxious about what is being considered a serious personal health-related issue. It's not known if Griffen will travel with the Vikings to Los Angeles for Thursday's game against the Rams. He was one of the NFL's sack leaders last season. He's recorded one sack this season.
