I was reading about Coples and found this about Jared Allen. Anyone else heard anything about this possibility?

The Minnesota Vikings, who pick third, and the Cleveland Browns, who are going fourth, both have needs along the defensive line, and either team could be the right fit for Coples if the Rams decide not to take another defensive end this year.

The Vikings have run a 4-3 during the Jared Allen era, but Allen doesn't want to play in a 3-4 defense, as current head coach Leslie Frazier has suggested might happen prior to the 2012 season.

The Vikings could be forced to take Coples out of necessity if Allen did happen to leave Minnesota in the coming weeks, but at the same time an Allen-Coples combination at defensive end could be big-time for the Vikings in the coming years.

i see allen being even more expensive than mario williams.

i can't see them releasing him when he has so much value, either.

i wouldn't dwell on that possibility too much.

won't happen but I would trade our 1st rounder next season for him.. he is a force to be reckon with and we'd have charles johnson playing opposite of him. Next year if we take the step we all believe we can we would be picking in the 20's at the earliest.. and he would help us tremendously. but it will not happen

I'd argue Jared Allen is the best DE in football at the moment. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Coples goes either to the Vikings or Browns, QB/OT/DE are the best value positions in the top 5.

He'd be way to expensive. Although Johnson/Allen combo would be very nice.

no way, first off there is no way the Vikings just release him, second we don't have the money to bring him in

No chance he's released. Traded? Maybe.

i don't think he would be a FA at all either but that does not mean he would be available to the highest bidder. That being the case it shakes up what a lot of people in the top 10 draft slots could be attempting.

recent blogs (unreliable I know) from the four letter and other sources show that Leslie is rethinking the 3-4 idea he was high on earlier. So this is likely a dead thread/discussion anyway

I don't see this team going after a high priced free agent that may have plateued already. Arguably the best de in the game but too costly and it goes against the philosophy of the organization.

How about Rivera brings in a guy he's familiar with like the revitalized Mark Anderson?
