Denver Broncos

During his time in college at USC, Everson Griffen was a part of a talented group of defensive linemen that included five-time Pro Bowler, Jurrell Casey.

Casey ended up getting drafted one year after Griffen and he spent his first nine seasons in the NFL as a member of the Tennessee Titans. This year, Casey decided to sign with the Denver Broncos and help contribute to their defense led by head coach Vic Fangio.

The Broncos could use some more pass-rushing help on their defensive line and perhaps they would be interested in reuniting Griffen with his former USC teammate.

Fangio is also very familiar with what the former Vikings defensive end is capable of since he spent four years in the NFC North as the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears. Should the AFC version of Mike Zimmer make a call to Griffen and try to get him to suit up for Denver this season?
