Everson Griffen is being forced to kiss some ass after showing his. The Minnesota Vikings announced on Monday that they are signing the 33-year-old defensive end, who played for the organization from 2010 through 2019.

That might make things tense in the locker room.

Earlier this year, Griffen went viral for taking shots at Vikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. In a since-deleted thread, the four-time Pro Bowlers said that Cousins is “ass.”

He even doubled-down, denying that he was hacked in a tweet that is still up.

Griffin did not have any plans on re-joining Minnesota at the time.

Well, now he’s back. And Kirk Cousins is his quarterback. Awkward.

Griffen apologized for his tweets shortly after they caused quite a commotion. The apology that was specifically directed toward Cousins has also been deleted.

“I’m sorry for posting that about Kirk. It’s not right for me to call people out. I apologize for hurting him. I’m very grateful and thankful.”

The other tweet apologized to the team.

Despite the informal apology, Griffen wants to make things right in person now that he’s back in the Vikings organization.

Griffen, who spent the first 10 years of his career with Minnesota, signed a one-year deal with Dallas last season before being traded to Detroit. He will return to the Land of 10,000 Lakes with an apology in order.
