Shaquem Griffin Drawing Interest From Multiple Teams

Multiple teams have expressed interest in signing free agent Shaquem Griffin (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero). Although he’s spent much of his career as a true linebacker, Pelissero hears that he could transition to a full-time edge rusher. 

Griffin has suited up for 46 games over three seasons with the Seahawks. Serving mostly as a special teamer, he’s compiled 25 total tackles, one sack, and one pass defensed over the course of his career. The twin brother of cornerback Shaquill Griffin, Shaquem has managed a solid career of his own, despite playing with one hand.

In his final year at Central Florida, Griffin finished as a first-team all-American Athletic Conference selection with 74 tackles (13.5 for loss), a team-high seven sacks, one interception, three pass breakups, and two forced fumbles.
