Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin told reporters on a Zoom call Friday that he wishes to remain in the Emerald City for a long time, if not his entire career.

The young cornerback had a minor conversation with the team’s front office regarding his contract situation and stated that he will take things one day at a time as he enters the final year of his rookie deal.

“The main thing is the coaches, the organization – they know I love it here,” Griffin said. “I feel like that’s very noticeable. I’d like to be here as long as I can, if not forever. It’s going to work itself out. The only thing I can focus on is the next day, the next play.

“Whenever it’s going to be ready for me, it’s going to be there.”

Griffin professed that he has enjoyed himself throughout his first three years in the NFL, but is wary of the complications and unpredictability that come with being a player in this league.

“It’s been a wonderful time so far,” Griffin said. “I’d love to be here forever, but some things are just out of your control. At the end of the day, I know it’s a business.”

Griffin stated that he will do his best to make plays no matter the situation on the field and do what he is supposed to at any given moment.

“I’m not going to sit here and say I’m going to start jumping routes,” Griffin said. “The play that’s on top of the ball, where I’m on top of the receiver? If that ball is in the air and I can make it, I’m going to make it. If it’s a comeback that I know that he just broke on and the ball is in the air and I know I can get there, I’m going to try and make it. But there are some (plays) where I’m a step behind and I know I have to play the hands or punch it out. I’m going to punch it out. You just have to know our battles.”

What Seattle will choose to do with Griffin is unknown, but it is evident that he likes playing for the Seahawks, and one can only hope the organization has the same enthusiasm over him.
