When the Seahawks told Mawae he wasn't the caliber of player he thought he was after four seasons, he became the highest-paid center in the NFL in 1998 playing for coach Bill Parcells with the New York Jets.
"I didn't have to worry about the extra everybody trying to hype your head up and get you big-headed, and stuff like that, and everybody telling you what you can and cannot do," Griffin said Thursday as the Seahawks wrapped up their mandatory minicamp. "More so for me was to take time for yourself, find out who you are, find out what you want to do, find out what your goals are, and what you want to get out of the next season and go after it."
