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.
