Cowboys: 3 major ways Everson Griffen will help Dallas’ defense

The Dallas Cowboys made an intriguing addition to their roster ahead of NFL training camp. They signed former Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen to bolster their pass rush.

The terms of Griffen’s deal with the Cowboys ended up being a one-year, $6 million contract, per ESPN’s Kimberley A. Martin. Of that $6 million, half will be base salary with the other half being roster bonuses.

The free agency landscape for the defensive end position was largely impacted by Jadeveon Clowney taking his time before making a decision. That made Griffen a backup plan for a number of teams still attempting to land Clowney’s services.

During the 2019 season, Griffen appeared in 15 games and totaled 41 combined tackles (11 for loss), 8.0 sacks, 24 QB hits, two pass breakups, and one interception.

With that being said, let’s take a look at three major ways Everson Griffen will help the Dallas Cowboys’ defense.
