I understand he doesn't want to be in a rotation, but the REAL question is will he be willing to take less to be a 3 down player? Teams will be more likely to take a chance and make those kinds of promises to him if he doesn't cost them the price of 3 decent players.Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

At any rate...not accounting for year by year results, just looking overall....I think JA earned every dollar he was paid by the Vikings. If it makes you feel better, tell yourself he was paid that $17M cap figure for his 22 sack season. Finishing up his sixth season with the Vikings, Allen has 81 sacks, or an average of about 13.5 sacks per season. Yeah, he earned his deal....SKOL VIKINGS!
