TIFFANY ON SPOLANSKY
"Where’s the beef?  It is right here.  After eating and lifting his way through the summer of 2017, Griffin has realized his goal of adding much needed pounds.  As a much stronger version of himself, Griffin is now better prepared to defend powerful dodgers.  While he still has to become more comfortable with his defensive holds, progress is being realized and Griffin is positioning himself to fight for and realize meaningful playing time."
