The Minnesota Vikings released a statement in response to the disturbing Everson Griffen Instagram video that was posted online. 

Police arrived at the home of Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen on Wednesday after a disturbing video was posted to the player's Instagram account earlier in the day.

In the video Griffen is seen sitting in the dark with a handgun, describing to those watching that he has a license to carry it and that he's preparing to defend himself against what he claims is a threat to his life.

According to KTSP in Minneapolis, screenshots of a conversation allegedly involving Griffen saying he needed help and that "people are trying to kill me" were also posted to his social media accounts.

The Minnesota Vikings released the following statement on Wednesday morning:

Vikings representatives and the team's mental health professionals have been on-site at Everson Griffen's home since early this morning and are cooperating with law enforcement. Our only concern at this time is the safety and well-being of Everson and his family. We will have further comment at the appropriate time.
