“Talking to my mother and coming from a great background, one of the best things she ever said was, ‘That’s a lot more money than you ever played for in any season you ever played. You can’t really be upset because you played for $3 million last year and you’d play for 6.2 million this year,’” Griffin said.
“It’s a business. When you started to play this sport, it was a business first and playing was second. You have to honor your contract, and you’ve got play out your contract. That’s all you can really do. There’s not anything else you can do except to go out and do your job.”
The franchise tag allows both the Titans and Griffin time to work out a long-term contract prior to the start of the season.
