Per Spotrac, Griffen's current deal runs through 2018 and pays him an average annual salary of $8.2 million.
Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune provided comments from Griffen's agent:
The 29-year-old Griffen was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl last season after posting 48 tackles, 8.0 sacks, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and one touchdown.
He registered double-digit sacks in each of the previous two seasons, and has missed just one game over the past six campaigns.
Griffen was originally a fourth-round pick out of USC by the Vikes in 2010, and he has gradually developed into one of the NFL's most complete, reliable defensive ends.
He is currently ninth on the Vikings' all-time sacks list with 48.0, and another strong season in 2017 could move him inside the top five.
While Brian Robison and Danielle Hunter provide support, Griffen is unquestionably Minnesota's best edge-rushing option as part of a highly talented defense.
