Everson Griffen’s recent signing, not with the New Orleans Saints, is going to end up being one of the biggest mistakes of his career.
In recent days, a big-time free agent that the New Orleans Saints had previously been linked too, signed with a team that was not New Orleans. The star defensive end is now a member of the Dallas Cowboys organization.
The former Minnesota Viking is coming off of a Pro-Bowl season in 2019. He racked up 41 tackles (11 for a loss), 8.0 sacks, one interception, and 24 hits on the quarterback.
Those are numbers that the Saints could have used on their team with Marcus Davenport sliding into more of a backup role.
However, Everson Griffen still chose the Cowboys over the Saints and that will go down as one of the biggest mistakes of Griffen’s career. The Saints, on the other hand, will still continue to be one of the best defenses in the NFL without Griffen.
Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport will hold it down. In what could have been the best move of Griffen’s career has now taken shape in what might be the beginning of the end for the defensive end. Here is why.
