Cowboys Sign Ex-Vikings DE Everson Griffen

A big-time pass rusher is heading to Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys are signing former Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Jane Slater reported Wednesday evening.

It’s a one-year deal worth $6 million. The team later confirmed the signing.

Griffen, 32, is a four-time Pro Bowler who spent the last 10 years with the Vikings and there was a chance of him returning or heading to the Seahawks, as the teams went “back and forth,” but the Cowboys emerged from under the radar to sign him.
