APRIL 10, 2020 – In late September 2018, the Vikings ordered Griffen to undergo a mental health screen after multiple incidents in which the defensive end became uncontrollably irate at the team facility days including a police report that said Griffen threatened to shoot someone at a downtown Minneapolis hotel. 

Griffen’s agent, Brian Murphy told Pelissero doctors were able to rule out “serious mental health issues,” yet the defender continued to seek help, ultimately discovering a source of trauma and putting him on a road to recovery that allowed him to return to work while remaining in a treatment program. 

Murphy explained that process in detail through an email to Pelissero:
