    Sources: Chiefs agree to send franchise player Allen to Vikes






    After The Rush



    The Vikings better hope that Jared Allen doesn't suffer the same fate as every other sack champion recently. They have all posted fewer sacks the year after winning the crown.

    Jared Allen, the franchise player for the Kansas City Chiefs, is heading to a new franchise, the Minnesota Vikings, according to multiple sources.
    Late Tuesday night, the Chiefs and the Vikings reached an agreement on a trade package, and at roughly the same time, Allen reached an agreement in principle on a contract with the Vikings. Upon reaching the contract agreement, Allen headed to the airport and left for Minnesota.
    The Kansas City Star reported on Tuesday night that Allen agreed to one of the largest contracts for a defensive player -- six years for almost $74 million with more than $31 million guaranteed.
    Sources said the Vikings included a second third-round pick (No. 73) in the 2008 draft to get the deal done. They had been offering a No. 1 pick (17th in the first round) and a No. 3 (No. 82). The teams also swapped spots in the sixth round with the Vikings getting a better spot in the sixth round, sources said.


    Allen, a fourth-year defensive end out of Idaho State, led the league in sacks last season with 15.


    The Chiefs, who are trying to get younger, now have the fifth pick in the first round and presumably the Vikings pick, which is the 17th. Allen had made it clear to the Chiefs that he wouldn't sign a long-term deal with the team.

    Now, the Chiefs can use the fifth pick in the first round to find a pass-rushing replacement, either Vernon Gholston of Ohio State or Chris Long of Virginia.

    31, Look at the part that says "Allen had made it clear to the Chiefs that he would not sign a long term deal with the Chiefs" This is why I said he would do anything possible to screw the Chiefs. Turns out he didn't have to but he was not happy with CP that is for sure!

    I don't think that Jared is being overpaid, he's a monster and will help the Vikes get to the playoffs this year.

    Jared didn't get the draft picks

    He doesn't even own a team yet.

    Their D line is pretty solid.



    Not that I like the Vikings or hope they make it past the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs.
