The Vikings and defensive end Everson Griffen agreed on a revised contract Thursday afternoon that will keep the 31-year-old in Minnesota for at least one more season. While the official numbers aren’t yet known, it is believed that Griffen will make around $8 million in 2019. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact:

Griffen was likely to be released had he not been open to a revised contract. The two sides were able to strike a deal before Griffen’s previous $10.9 million in salary became guaranteed at 3 p.m. Central time Thursday. Griffen missed five games in 2018 due to mental health issues. He was hospitalized after an incident that required police intervention but was able to return to the team after several weeks. Griffen finished the season with 5.5 sacks in 11 games.
