    I think you've mentioned it once or twice

    I'm sure that idea has never occurred to them. Unfortunately it takes two parties to make it work. You could always cut him and free up $14.5M of cap space ($2.5m is dead money).

    I doubt Allen, face of the franchise, is against getting more guaranteed money and a chance to finish his career in Minn.

    I think that AD might take issue with the notion that Jared Allen is the face of the franchise.

    And I also think that Allen knows that he could easily hit free agency next year and still make top 5 DE money. So there is little motivation for him to take a $7m pay cut this year just so he can get a contract with a little more contractually guaranteed money with the Vikings over a few more years.

    I'm not saying it can't happen, but stop acting like JA should be drooling over a possible contract renegotiation. This armchair GMing is getting ridiculous.

    Let's just say Jared Allen is the face of the defense. I think we can all agree on that.

    I think it all depends on the offer we give him.
    You are on a fan message board...asking to stop armchair - Qbing, Coaching, GMing, is like asking water not to be wet. You should find a more productive site for your time then sir.

    Point taken and conceded on both accounts.

    I expect him to be gone next year.

    If he wants more than 12....Then yes. However, a deal that averages 12 for him is reasonable.
