Veteran DE Griffen says goodbye to Vikings, fans

The Vikings will have an entirely new set of starters at cornerback in 2020, something Mike Zimmer didn't fully anticipate when we talked to him in Indy but is now the team's reality. Minnesota has Mike Hughes, who could be in line to take over in the slot if needed (for Mackensie Alexander) or one of the starting outside spots, Holton Hill and Kris Boyd. MIN will need to address this high in the draft.
