Everson Griffen and his wife, Tiffany Brandt, have been together for 11 years and have been married since 2014.
They met each other at a now-closed bar Blondie’s, formerly located in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.
Since they have been together, Everson credits his wife with changing him for the better.
Moreover, the Griffen couple has welcomed three kids together; Greyson, Ellis, and Sebastian.
Everson Griffen, born December 22, 1987, is an American defensive end player currently a free agent.
An Agua Fria High School graduate attended the University of Southern California and played for the USC Trojans.
After a successful collegiate career, Griffen embarked on his professional football career as the fourth-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2010 NFL draft.
The 4X Pro Bowler played with the Vikings until 2019, and for the 2020-21 seasons, he played with the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions.
Moreover, in his second stint with the Vikings in 2021, the defensive end suffered a concussion after crashing a car and was placed on the non-football illness list to deal with his mental health issue.
Following the 2021 season, he was released by the Vikings and has remained a free agent ever since.
Married Life And Kids
Everson Griffen tied the knot with Tiffany Brandt at the Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis on July 5, 2014.
There is little to no information regarding Tiffany’s early and personal life.
How Did Their Path Cross, And How Their Story Started?
They initially met at a local bar when Griffen had just completed his rookie NFL season.
Tiffany left the bar, but Everson tracked her down. They eventually went on their first date at the Pancake House.
After dating for a while, they got engaged in 2012, and a couple of years later, they settled down.
In their 11 years of togetherness, they welcomed three sons, Greyson (10), Ellis (8) and Sebastian (5).
About expanding family, they plan on having four of five; Griffin told ESPN.
Their happy conjugal life suffered some turbulence after the defensive end met an accident.
Following the incident, he suffered from mental issues, and Tiffany reportedly had to call the cops to report her husband’s erratic behavior.
During that time, their marriage was reportedly on the verge of ending in a divorce.
