For years, former Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen wreaked havoc on Detroit Lions‘ quarterbacks but now, he is part of the pride.
On Sunday, Griffen will play his first game in a Lions uniform and it just so happens to be against his former team.
Following Thursday's practice, Griffen was asked about Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer saying he “was a good player,” and he was not too happy.
“I got a little frustrated when I read that comment,” Griffen said. “What Zimmer said about, ‘Oh, Everson was a good player.’ Coach Zimmer wasn’t just a good coach, he was a great coach to me. So for him to call me a good player, that kinda hurts my feelings.”
“I’m just a good player? Alright, he’s got a good player coming his way. He’s going to see on Sunday what he got coming for him.”
“They’re going to put some respect on my name. He’s going to put some respect on my name.”
“I’m going to come out and dominate, and I’m going to come out and do that, because I’m just a good player, right? Alright.”
