The Arizona Cardinals reportedly have interest in adding a four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman this offseason.

There hasn't been much free agency speculation for veteran defensive lineman Everson Griffen - yet, anyway. But that could be changing.

Arizona reportedly has interest in adding the 32-year-old defensive lineman. Griffen spent the last 10 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.

The Cardinals reportedly have interest in signing the 2017 second-team All-Pro. He's coming off a highly productive 2019 season, too.

ESPN analyst Jeremy Fowler reported this weekend that Arizona could be emerging as a potential destination for Griffen.

Fowler added that Griffen is being patient and waiting for the right opportunity. That opportunity could come in Arizona.

The Cardinals are seen by some as a team that could make a big jump in 2020. One NFL analyst is even picking Kyler Murray to win the MVP.

“I know it’s a bit early to make predictions for the upcoming season, but that’s how confident I am that Kyler Murray will win the league’s highest individual honor this year,” Bucky Brooks wrote for NFL.com. “The 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year will become the third straight second-year quarterback to take the award, following in the footsteps of Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson.”

Perhaps Griffen will want to hop aboard the hype train.
