The contract extension will keep the 4th year man on the team through the 2018 season. Griffin has yet to play in a regular season game in his career, however, the Buccaneers see enough in him to keep him around.
Griffin was signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane back in 2013. During his 4-year career at Tulane, he threw for 9,026 yards, 56 TDs, 35 INTs, and had a 59.9 completion percentage.
The Buccaneers claimed Griffin off of waivers in 2015 and signed to a two-year $1.1 million contract. In 2017, he was resigned to Tampa with a one-year $1.797 million contract.
Griffin is currently recovering form a shoulder injury that he sustained during the exhibition game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
