A day after being eliminated from the playoffs, the Buffalo Bills have decided to mount up.
The Bills, per NFL Media's Mike Garafolo, inked cornerback Olaijah Griffin to a two-year futures deal. This procedural item is newsworthy because Griffin's father is West Coast hip-hop legend Warren G, known for the songs "Regulate" and "This D.J.," among other hits.
Griffin, 22, spent the 2021 campaign on the Bills' practice squad after the Bills signed him as an undrafted free agent. With so many California ties in his family, Griffin appropriately played his college ball at USC.
This year's Super Bowl halftime show at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood will feature performance from three of the greatest rappers in West Coast history, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, along with Mary J. Blige and Eminem. Warren G is a long-time collaborator with Snoop Dogg, so it would be pretty cool if the 51-year-old made a guest appearance during the biggest concern of the year.
