Vikings' Everson Griffen asks fans for help in naming newborn son

25 November 2017

Hours before the game, Griffen and his wife, Tiffany, welcomed their third child. I'm happy to have a new addition - three boys.

During a Fox interview that was posted before the game, Griffen first revealed that the baby had been born that morning. I don't know what my wife is going to do. It'll drive her insane. "What should we name him?" the shirt read.

With the way Griffen and the Vikings terrorized the Lions in the first half we aren't sure the Detroit faithful will be much help but the viewers at home might have some good suggestions. Details at the time were limited, but the baby - a boy - joins brothers Greyson and Ellis. Tight end Kyle Rudolph thought the name "Rudy Griffen" sounded like a future star. Running back Latavius Murray was on board with the name Latavius.

"Definitely not Mike", coach Mike Zimmer joked. "For him to have to be here, and do the things he did, he's a team guy all the way".

After the game, Griffen said of the message, "I don't know".

As insane as it sounds, ESPN pointed out that Griffen could possibly face a penalty for exposing his undershirt message, as the National Football League prohibits players from altering their uniforms with personal messages.
