Former Tennessee Titans' safety Michael Griffin has signed with the Vikings, according to RapSheet.

Griffin was cut after another down year with the Titans, but has apparently landed on his feet in Minnesota. His departure left a void in the Titans' secondary that will likely be addressed soon.
I wasn't sure what Griffin's market value would be, but apparently he had plenty of interest. Griffin will have a chance to win in the final phase of his career in Minnesota, which had to be high on his priority list. This looks like a backup plan for Minnesota, who missed out on George Illoka.
It's a one year, 3 million dollar deal for Griffin.
