For four years now, the Minnesota Vikings have been sitting on the confirmation of a myth they never even bothered to check for. If you had thought the firing of the former coaching staff was strictly because they ran a poor team, couldn't call a game, and generally were awful at their jobs, you would have been only partially correct.
The other reason? They had, for four years, confirmation of a mythical beast right there on their roster, and never even realized it. The new coaching staff? Much smarter. When they see the talons of an eagle, the body of a lion, and the face of a shirtless Adonis, they recognize it for what it is; myth made into reality, the fantastical coming to fruition. The savior of their defense, and the protector of their valuable end zones.
And so they locked that up. On Sunday, the Vikings signed defensive end Everson Griffen to a five year, $42 million contract extension. A small price to pay to have a magical beast roaming your defense.no comments
