    Re: Jared Allen, Bling police: Rips rookies’ jewelry

    Remember Jared Allen was a 4th round draft choice. Marcel Dareuses' watch is probably worth more than JA got in a signing bonus.

    Question is, did he buy it recently anticipating a payday, or was it a *cough* gift when he was in Alabama

    NEWS FLASH! I doubt Cam Newton was the only one of these guys sporting bling that has already received a first big paycheck.

    A lot of these guys' palms have been greased.

    I think the money comes from their agents/agency. It's a loan based on the money they expect the player to make. While, I wouldn't run out and by a huge watch like those guys, I see nothing wrong with rewarding yourself with nice things. I love cars, so I would probably buy a couple and a really nice home for myself and family. Remember these guys are huge KIDS. What would you have spent $100,000 on as a 21-22 year old? I'm sure some stupid ish.

    For sure. Especially in the SEC.

    And JA was 21 himself. Now while he may not have bought "Bling", I'm pretty sure he blew some cash on something.
