Zimmer Says Vikings in Full Support of Everson Griffen Through 'Tough Times'

28 September 2018

The incident involving Everson Griffen on Saturday at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis was the continuation of recent erratic behavior by the Vikings defensive end that, according to the Star Tribune, has him at a mental healthy facility for evaluation and treatment.

According to the police report, Minneapolis Police Department responded to an incident at Hotel Ivy in the city on Saturday afternoon because of someone who was verbally threatening to shoot hotel staff members if he wasn't let into his room. He was eventually transported by ambulance to an area hospital for his well-being, despite jumping out of the vehicle at one point during a brief stop for crossing deer.

The incident report indicated that Pico also told police that team management had sent Griffen and his agent a letter last Thursday that stated Griffen would not be allowed back with the team until he underwent a mental health evaluation.

Mike Zimmer was predictably tight-lipped about the situation, but some concerning details surrounding Griffen's absence have begun to emerge, involving a weird incident with a gun at a Minneapolis hotel.

She said when she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, according to the affidavit. The case will be presented to a grand jury, which will decide whether to indict Guyger for manslaughter or a different charge.

"The only thing really we're concerned about for Everson isn't anything to do with football; it's about him getting better", Zimmer said. "I just hope the best for him".

Griffen, 30, didn't practice Monday, and Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Tuesday he was ruled out of Thurday's game against the Rams. Unable to return to Minnesota in time for the birth, Griffen watched via FaceTime from his phone before recording two sacks in that game.

The incident report states that hotel staff believed Griffen was possibly under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.

Zimmer said he hasn't talked to Griffen since the Week 2 overtime game at Green Bay. Griffen's wife later contacted police to inform them Griffen said he was at Vikings teammate Trae Waynes' home and was trying to break in.

After a scary series of incidents on Saturday, Griffen remained away from the team on Tuesday and out of action indefinitely.

Griffen then went to a nearby gas station, where he saw a man who works at an establishment he frequents. He was arrested days later for allegedly assaulting an officer during a traffic stop. He recently signed a four-year, $58 million extension that included a $2 million signing bonus and a total of $34 million in guaranteed money. "He's always been a really good model for us and obviously he's going through some tough times now".
