  • Panthers' Shaquill Griffin: Finishes campaign in Carolina

    Griffin finished the regular season with six tackles (five solo) and one pass defended in three games for the Panthers. He began the campaign with the Texans, recording 33 tackles (24 solo) and one interception on four passes defended in 10 games. Griffin was cut by Houston despite starting six games. He subsequently started one of his three appearances for Carolina. The former Pro Bowler is now slated to become an unrestricted free agent, leaving his 2024 outlook uncertain until he signs somewhere.

  • Panthers' Shaquill Griffin: Claimed by Panthers

    Griffin was claimed off waivers by the Panthers on Thursday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports. The move came a day after Griffin was released by the Texans. Griffin started six games for Houston and recorded 33 tackles, four passes defensed and an interception, but he lost his role to second-year cornerback Derek Stingley in recent weeks. The seventh-year veteran should start off as a depth corner for the Panthers.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Snags first pick of the season

    Griffin logged five tackles (two solo), an interception and a pass deflection in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Bengals. Griffin came up big for the Texans, intercepting Joe Burrow in the end zone late in the fourth quarter. The 28-year-old hadn't recorded an interception before Sunday's since 2020, and he'll look to produce once again when the team takes on the Cardinals next week.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Now questionable for Sunday

    Griffin (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Atlanta. After apparently sustaining a calf injury at practice during the week, Griffin is now in danger of missing his first game of the season in Week 5. Either way, with Steven Nelson, Tavierre Thomas and Grayland Arnold healthy, Houston should have a fighting chance to contain a Falcons passing attack that hasn't been very good through four games this year.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Dealing with calf injury

    Griffin (calf) was a limited participant at practice Thursday. Griffin is coming off a Week 5 win over the Steelers in which he led Houston's corners in snaps (53), so he likely picked up the injury during practice this week. It's unclear whether he's in danger of missing time, but if he can't manage a full practice Friday, he'll likely carry an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Stepping in as starter

    Griffin is expected to take over the Texans' starting role at left cornerback with Derek Stingley (hamstring) placed on IR on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Click2Houston reports. Stingley's injury is considered a serious one, and he's expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. Griffin is thus slated to be the next man up at outside corner, where he has plenty of experience over a seven-year career that includes a Pro Bowl berth while with Seattle in 2019. The 28-year-old was released by Jacksonville this past March after injuries limited him to just five games last season, but he appears fully healthy now despite dealing with a back injury during OTAs in June.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Healthy again

    Griffin (back) was seen breaking up a pass at Texans camp Thursday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports. Griffin missed some of OTAs with a back issue but has since had time to get past the issue. The veteran cornerback joined Houston this offseason after four years in Seattle and two in Jacksonville. Throughout his career, the Central Florida product has recorded 327 tackles, 59 pass breakups and six interceptions. Expect the one-time Pro Bowler to start alongside second-year corner Derek Stingley ahead of the coming season.

  • Shaquill Griffin: Let go by Jacksonville

    The Jaguars released Griffin on Wednesday, Jordan Schultz of TheScore.com reports. As expected, Griffin and the Jaguars have officially parted ways following his two-season stint in North Florida. A 2019 Pro Bowl selection, Griffin appeared in just five games this past campaign due to a combination of hip and back injuries. Despite his injury-marred stint in Jacksonville, the 27-year-old's track record could still make him one of the more sought-after cornerbacks in free agency.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Jaguars looking to move on

    The Jaguars are expected to release or trade Griffin (back) in the near future, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Griffin is well-regarded as a cover corner in the league, but he managed to play in only five games in 2022 due to a combination of hip and back injuries. Further, the Jaguars will save $13.1 million in cap space by releasing him, a cap hit that may also deter other teams from trading for him. If Griffin hits free agency, he's likely to be among the most coveted corners on the market.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Ruled out Sunday

    Griffin (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. Griffin was held out of practice all week due to his back injury, and he'll be sidelined for at least one game after recording a season-high nine tackles last week. Darious Williams and Chris Claybrooks should see additional playing time against the Giants.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Active Sunday

    Griffin (hip) will play Sunday against the Eagles. Griffin will return after missing the team's Week 3 win over the Chargers. His return will be a boost to the Jaguars secondary as they look to contain A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith on Sunday.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Listed questionable for Sunday

    Griffin (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Griffin landed on the injury report last Friday due to a hip issue and ultimately was sidelined for the team's Week 3 win over the Chargers. He was limited at practices throughout the week and will have a chance to return in Week 4. However, if Griffin is ruled out again, Darious Williams and Chris Claybrooks would be in line for expanded roles against Philadelphia.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Listed as questionable

    Griffin (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Chargers. Griffin landed on the injury report Friday as a limited participant with a hip injury, putting his status for Week 3 in jeopardy. The extent of the issue remains unclear, but if he's sidelined, Chris Claybrooks, Montaric Brown and Tre Herndon would be candidates for the starting job across from Tyson Campbell, while Darious Williams would likely remain the primary nickel cornerback.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Clear of injury report

    Griffin (back) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report. Griffin missed the final two preseason games due to back tightness, but as expected, he'll be good to go for Week 1. Last year, the veteran defensive back recorded 49 tackles, seven pass defenses and one forced fumble during his first season with Jacksonville. He figures to garner a similar role in 2022.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Added to reserve/COVID-19 list

    Griffin (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Griffin is now out for Sunday's game against the Patriots since he'll be unable to return two negative tests at least 24 hours apart. His absence will be a blow to the Jaguars' defense, as he's racked up 45 total tackles and six passes defended across 13 games this season. With Rudy Ford (undisclosed) also on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Tre Herndon and Nevin Lawson are candidates to see an increased role.

  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Joins Jaguars

    Griffin will sign a three-year, $44.5 million deal with the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per the report, the cornerback's deal includes $29 million guaranteed. The 2017 third-rounder is coming off a 2020 campaign in which he logged 63 tackles and three picks in 12 games with the Seahawks. Griffin will move right into a starting slot with Jacksonville, a context that puts the 25-year-old on the IDP radar.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Won't receive franchise tag

    The Seahawks won't use the franchise tag on Griffin for the 2021 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Griffin missed four games in 2020 due to a hamstring injury, but he served as the Seahawks' clear No. 1 cornerback when healthy. Over 12 games, he allowed 644 yards (7.4 yards per target) and six touchdowns in coverage, adding 63 tackles, 12 pass breakups and three interceptions. The Seahawks will actively try to match any offers Griffin receives on the free-agent market.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Should be available Week 12

    Coach Pete Carroll said Thursday he expects Griffin (hamstring) to play against the Eagles in Week 12, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Griffin's hamstring injury has sidelined him for four straight games, but he'll get a few extra days to rest up ahead of a Nov. 30 contest in Philadelphia. It sounds like the starting cornerback is on track to return versus the Eagles barring any setbacks, but his health will nonetheless be worth keeping a close eye on.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Listed as DNP

    Griffin (hamstring/concussion) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. While Griffin is still listed with a concussion, coach Pete Carroll said last week that he cleared the league's five-step protocol, so this is either a formality or Griffin suffered a setback. Regardless, he'll need to get on the practice field by Wednesday to have a chance to suit up in Thursday's matchup against the Cardinals. Quinton Dunbar (knee) also was a DNP on Monday, so the Seahawks are at risk of being without their top two cornerbacks once again.
