I say do it, and then roll with Everson Griffen next year and see how he does instead of going out and drafting a guy high. I think Everson is the only reason that we could realistically do this without setting the franchise back.

If they trade him, they need to get a 1st round pick and another pick, otherwise it isn't worth it, and it is questionable if it is even worth it then. I wouldn't be opposed to trading him, but he'd have to come at the correct value.


This. This isnt like the NBA or MLB were superstars are traded willy nilly. I just dont like trading one of our best players hoping to get someone good back. And player for player rarely happens in the NFL.

Allen is one of the reason we sell tickets. He isn't going anywhere. If it were corect value( 1st+) then I would but only then. Vikings won't move him. He will restructure his deal before he is cut.

The only way I would trade Allen is if we were switching to a 3-4 scheme. I remember how hard it was to get a good 4-3 RDE.

It still is hard, not as many elite 4-3 REs out there compared to elite 3-4 OLBs.

He'd never get traded to the Pack, but I'd give up alot. First rd pick to start out with and go from there.


The only problem with you guys trading for him is that he's a 4-3 DE. He's probably athletic enough to play outside in your 3-4, but he probably wouldn't be as effective. If he could be though, he and CM3 would be a beastly duo! I just think of him as kind of an Aaron Kampmann type, who is strictly a 4-3 DE.

Do you think he would work out in your 3-4?

I would guess that a 2nd rd pick to a contending team is probably the tops MN could receive for Allen if they considered trading him. Say a veteran team like the Falcons or Saints who need a stud pass rusher to get over the top.

What would sell more tickets, a good playoff team, or a bad team with Jared Allen?

Because if you can get a mid-first round pick, and then use the money to sign another starter that is younger than Allen, which team is likely to be better?

Jared Allen lives in Arizona, Larry Fitzgerald lives in Minnesota...


I'm brilliant.
