Wtf is wrong with you people?

Why in God's name would the Vikings get rid of Jared Allen in any way shape or form???

Yet, he is the first name everyone mentions.

Expensive isn't the half of it. He is signed through 2013. He will make 11.7 million in 2012 and 14.2 million in 2013. His cap hit for 2012 will be $14.2 million and in 2013 roughly 17 million. The only silver lining is if we did trade for him is that we would only be responsible for his salary not his cap hit. But still. Does anyone think we could deal with a 11.7 million cap hit this year.

They won't let him go and if they did, we wouldn't be in the running.


Saints should be able to sign him since they think everyone wants to be there, and will give a "hometown" discount.

Erin Henderson.


This is the guy I would like to get as TD's replacement (assuming that TD can't make it back from his 3rd ACL injury).

Because I guess people see "cleaning house" to mean "get rid of every single good player you have"

The way I see it is that Allen is in his prime now. A team like Cincy with money and picks to blow might be willing to make a deal. The Vikings are horrible and are not going to compete soon. By the time they do Allen will be on the decline.

Nobody else wondering if Steve Hutchinson has anything left in the tank?


Hell yes for a good price. But he is in that state of his career that he would prefer to go to a Super Bowl contending team (maybe only on a one year deal).

J Allen and J Abraham would be like a Madden game come true.....









will never happen.


Ether one would make us a whole lot better on defense. Might even mask a Rookie CB learning curve as well. :ihih:
