Jim Wyatt is reporting that former safety Michael Griffin will sign a 1-day contract with the Tennessee Titans on Monday so he can retire a Titan:
Former @Titans safety @MikeGriff33 is signing a one-day contract on Monday to retire as a Titan. Griffin played nine seasons for Tennessee after being a first-round pick by the team in 2007. He earned two Pro Bowl nods, while playing in 141 career games for the team.— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) May 6, 2018
I had no idea he hadn’t already retired.
Griffin had some really good years with the Titans. There was no doubting his physical skills. He had the ability to cover tight ends and running backs with ease. In fact, there were a couple of years where it looked like he was on his way to being one of the best safeties in the league. Those were the years where he had a really good pass rush in front of him.
Then there were times that were not quite as good. It just seems like he never put it all together to play at the level of his talent for a long stretch of time.
Overall, I would have to say that the Titans got pretty good value out of him as a first round pick.
