Former Minnesota Vikings Everson Griffen is still a free agent, but the Kansas City Chiefs were recently selected as a team that he might end up with.

If Everson Griffen could go back in time and re-do 2020 all over again, there’s a good chance that he probably would have just figured out a way to remain with the Minnesota Vikings.

But that’s not possible. Instead, Griffen is currently still looking for a team to play for this year after spending the 2020 campaign with the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions.

He would reportedly love to return to Minnesota this season. But that doesn’t seem very likely after the comments he made online earlier this year about Kirk Cousins. So where might he end up?

Kansas City Chiefs picked as best fit for former Minnesota Vikings pass rusher Everson Griffen

With the regular season quickly approaching, teams around the NFL are beginning to figure out which areas of their roster still need some improvement.

For the Kansas City Chiefs, a team that has made it all the way to the Super Bowl in each of the last two seasons, they could actually use some additional pass-rushing help.

Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark is currently in some hot water after getting arrested this offseason and he could be facing a suspension from the NFL this year. Without Clark on the field, Kansas City’s ability to get to the opposing quarterback goes way down.

To help make up for Clark possibly having to miss some time this season, Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton believes Griffen would be a good player for the Chiefs to add to their roster. In fact, Moton thinks Kansas City is the “best fit” for the former Vikings defensive end.

If Griffen was going to end up with another team other than Minnesota this year, the two-time defending AFC champions would be a pretty decent landing spot, to say the least.
