Vikings relieved Everson Griffen crisis ends 'peacefully'

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have made mental health support an organizational priority, an investment that only became more important with Everson Griffen's frightening experience three years ago.

The condition of mental illness never truly goes away, as the Vikings were reminded Wednesday. The team was relieved when Griffen emerged from his home without incident hours after he called 911 in a frenzy believing people were trying to kill him.

"We feel with the situation that we got him the necessary help he needs," general manager Rick Spielman said. "He's in the care of medical professionals."
