    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.

    Given Carl's track record I can't say that I'm surprised here; angry - yes, surprised - no.

    JA will definitely make a huge impact on the Vikes defense - I think they will be one of the best defenses in the league but I don't think it will take them to the big game. Their offense really sucks with TJack as quarterback. The only offensive power they have is Peterson.

    I think you are exactly right in your assessment.

    I also apologize again for the insult the other day.

    Again, I thought you were someone else, and it was a case of mistaken identity.
