    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.

    Yup. Carl Peterson was like a dog in heat, and finally got the #$%&ing he was so desperate for. But good luck to the Vikings. I think this move makes them an instant contender.

    You do realize all his powers came from the Red and Gold right? He will be just another average guy now that he dosen't play in Arrowhead!!
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    I agree with the move tho I hate to lose a player like Allen. Hopefully we will fill some gaping holes on this team as a result.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    Yeah, this was probably the best situation for what was going on. The Chiefs messed up a long time ago and it was just a matter of time before we lost JA. Might as well get some value out of him while you can.
