The New England Patriots lost Rob Gronkowski this year to retirement and they really did not find a solid replacement for him. I would not be shocked if the Patriots are one of the teams that put in a waiver claim for recently released tight end Ryan Griffin.
Griffin was released by the Houston Texans after recently signing a three year extension because he was arrested during the NFL Draft. Griffin played 77 games for Houston after being drafted in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. He caught 136 passes for 1,491 yards and seven touchdowns over that span.
Griffin was arrested on charges of vandalism and public intoxication after allegedly punching out the front window of a hotel after the second night of this year’s draft, but that will not stop the Patriots. I would be shocked if the Patriots did not put in a waiver claim for him.
On the other hand, for him to land on the Patriots he would need to make it through a handful of other teams before getting to New England. Here are five teams I would not be shocked to see put in a claim for him.
Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars, are just a few to keep in mind. If Griffin can get through these teams I would not be shocked if he is a Patriot by Monday afternoon.
