    This posted on the warpaint forums and you need to read it from the bottom up because the top part is actually the update to the lower post ( check the dates ) . Just thought I would lay it out there for something to talk about !


    NEW: Friday Morning - Jared Allen Update

    UPDATE FEBRUARY 29th - 12:08 AM
    According to Fox Sports Radio in Philadelphia. The Eagles are close to signing former New England Patriots cornerback Assante Samuels to a long term contract. Hours before the team gave permission to their current starting cornerback Lito Sheppard permission to seek a trade.

    According to the report on Fox Sports Radio, the Eagles are prepared to send their first round draft pick (#19) and their fourth round pick plus Sheppard in exchange for Jared Allen.

    Now we can't confirm this report by any means this late at night. But we're told by and NFL source that KC is entertaining offers for Allen. At the moment Allen is out of the country so trading him before he gets back to the State would bode well for any deal to simmer to a high boil before Allen could react to it with the local media.

    Still I've always maintained that the two sides would work out a deal. According to another source, Allen isn't looking to break the bank. He's looking for a Signing Bonus/Guarantee in the $30 million range.

    A year ago he asked for an $18 million Signing Bonus/Guarantee when the two sides met at the NFL Combines in February of 2007. The Chiefs countered with a one-year offer worth $2.2 million. That's when these talks went south and they haven't flown North since.

    To our knowledge there have been no substantial talks between the Chiefs and Ken Harris on either a long term contract or any parameters for a possible trade.

    Stay Tuned to Warpaint Illustrated for the very latest on Jared Allen.


    UPDATE: February 28th - 9:00 PM

    Ok I'm sharing the info that I received from someone in Jared Allen's camp earlier this afternoon. According to this source, there HAVE been NO contract talks with Ken Harris and Denny Thum as of this afternoon. The information we received earlier in the week indicated that there had been talks between the Chiefs and Harris. But per this source there has been ZERO contact. NOW this could be posturing to be honest.

    About an hour ago I received a tip that Allen is furious with the Chiefs and that there MAY be some truth to the report in the Pioneer Press from Wednesday that the Chiefs might be willing to trade Allen for the right price.

    I stress that these are known sources on each topic but by no means am I willing to stick my neck out either way. I'm attempting to get more information.

    All I can say is that appears that this isn't going to get settled with the Chiefs anytime soon and I think Chiefs fans should prepare for the inevitable that he COULD be traded.

    So to be honest I'm just passing it along and I'd give this a two or three out of five on the reliable meter.



    February 27 - 2008
    There is a report circulating that the Kansas City Chiefs may attempt to trade Jared Allen before the start of free agency. Per my sources, the report on Yahoo sports is nothing more than speculation.

    I've heard that the two sides have discussed a new contract and that its too early to indicate that that two sides will or won't settle on an agreement.

    Though I can say if another team does indeed make a play for Allen and they're willing to give up a pair of first round draft picks for him, I can't see the Chiefs matching the offer. That's JUST my opinion and one I've shared previously.
    The South Dakota Crew ( 9 strong ) Tailgated the 09 Draft party !

    If Allen won't sign a long-term deal then trading him becomes the best option. As trades go from this position, this one isn't horrible. Lito Sheppard is a very good corner, and although he's a veteran, he isn't old...he'll be 27 in April. The #19 along with your current #5 could be used to get 2 offensive linemen or an OT & a WR. This would be huge. Then the only question is can the Chiefs get a viable DE in the 2nd round, or in free agency.

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    The only viable DE would be Justin Smith and he's already talking to three other teams. He will be gone soon. Jevon Kearse is as fragile as antique china. What other DEs are available. Giving up one of the leaders and top three DEs in the league, if not #1 DE in the league does not make any sense. Lito Shepard is pretty solid but he's not a game changing defender. It's a gamble taking rookie offensive lineman as well. The only given is probably Long and he'll probably be gone by #5. Giving up JA would be devistating to this defense.

    I wouldn't mind this trade if Allen is as pissed off as he seems because we're NEVER going to sign him to a long term deal. Lito Shephard WOULD be a nuetral exchange straight up for Allen, but picking up a pair of picks including a first rounder would put this in a positive light for the Chiefs.

    With the #5 I'd expect the Chiefs to go after Vernon Gholston. From what i've read, he's basically Shawn Merriman on roids, but this guy does it NATURALLY. Then with the #19 pick, we take the Clady or best availiable OT. I still don't think J. Long will be available at #5.

    But there again, I'd still like to see the Chiefs trade that #5 pick and turn it into 2 more 1st round picks.

    I can agree that it would be a good idea to get good value if he is disgruntled, but Lito for him straight up is NOT a good deal. Granted we would get the picks.

    I have heard Gholston is pretty good but nobody knows yet. Derrick Harvey from Florida may be good too.

    Finally, If I was CP(Thank god i'm not) I would be completely onboard with your idea of trading #5 for two other first rounders. Preferably from the 'girls.

    why isn't this being talked about more? this would be the biggest trade to go down before the draft. I think if Lito, 1st and 4th is the starting point, i could see CP bringing back at least a 3rd instead of the 4th. So Carl is probably countering with Lito, 1st and 2nd. Don't be shocked to see this go down.

    It won't be popular, but it will be a good move.

    Samuel just signed with the Eagles. I think the Jared Allen thing is gonna go down. The signing of Asante Samuel makes Lito Shephard relatively expendable.

    Also, if we're looking at trading JA for a CB, why aren't we talking to Atlanta about D. Hall? If we can get Hall and their first round pick, I'd be good with that. lol

    You think we could get Hall and move up in the draft?

    That is the ONLY way I would approve of trading JA since he wants out so bad.

    Hall would be a great pickup but he's another one that would want a mountain of money to come to our team. One of the main reasons he wants out of Atlanta is because he wants to play for a contender.
