3 reasons Everson Griffen made a mistake by not signing with the Saints
Chance to Win
Let’s be honest, the Cowboys do not, in any way, have a greater chance to win than the Saints do. They might have a better chance to win their division considering the only real talent in Dallas’ division is the Philadelphia Eagles (who won it last year).
Currently, the New Orleans Saints have a streak of three straight years in the NFC side of the NFL playoffs. The Dallas Cowboys are at zero. They might have the history of Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman, but right now, they aren’t a winning team.
The Saints are set up again to be one of the best teams in the NFL. According to ESPN, the Saints have a 13% chance to win this year’s Super Bowl and come in only behind the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Cowboys have a 5% chance.
Griffen, who has been a part of the Minnesota Vikings his whole career, hasn’t seen a Super Bowl yet. Most of the time, that is an NFL player’s dream but not Griffen’s. He is content signing with a team that most likely won’t even win their division.
(The Philadephia Eagles have a 44.7% chance to win the division.)
