Jared Allen are You For Real
With the Viking going into the draft in a great need of a DE. The Vikes have a visitor in town this weekend.Jared Allen is talking with the Vikes as I type this up right now. If they are talking this long. I may mean that they Vikes are going to be getting themselves a pretty good man at the corner of the line. With Uedeze out for one season at least with cancer, but it may be a career ending thing.Being able to get Allen in a Viking uniform sounds like it is going to be a tricky one. I looks like that the Chief was a mutiple draft pick deal considering that they are in a rebuilding stage after a 4-12 year in 2007.
Any team obtaining the 6-6, 270-pound Allen would have to pay a steep price to Kansas City and the fifth-year veteran. It placed the franchise tag on Allen, meaning he would make $8.8 million in 2008 (the average of the NFL’s five highest-paid defensive ends.)With Allen causing havoc in the backfield would be sweet. I do not think that front linemen for the offense will be able to stop Allen and the Williams Boys from destroying the play. With that kind of pass rush maybe out backfield will not be getting toasted like it has been the past couple of years.
