Shaquem Griffin to tryout for the Denver Broncos

After just three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, the team decided not to place a restricted free agent tender on Shaquem Griffin this offseason. It was somewhat of a surprising move and one that left many sad as a fan favorite and Seahawks special teams staple was allowed to leave before his fourth season in the NFL.

However, it’s a move that at the time could be explained with Griffin joining his brother, fellow former Seahawk Shaquill, in Jacksonville as it was reported that the Jaguars were expected to sign him.

But that opportunity never came to fruition and Shaquem Griffin has been a free agent for multiple months, but he may find a new team soon. According to Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News, the Broncos are bringing in Griffin as a tryout player for minicamp.

While it looks like he won’t be joining his brother in Jacksonville for now, Griffin will still get another opportunity to try and crack an NFL team's special teams rotation, as well as try and crack a pass-rush rotation.

Griffin had one regular season sack in 2020 against the New York Jets and an unforgettable sack (alongside Shaquill) of Aaron Rodgers in the 2019 NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers.
