    While he was out of the country, Allen said he contracted a company to transform the garage at his Arizona home into a gym, and he plans to work out there.
    While he played for the Kansas City Chiefs, Allen participated in the team’s workout program. But a few offseasons ago, he worked out on his own and got terrific results.

    “The year I didn’t work out (with the team), I got in so much better shape,” Allen said. “I had a good core of trainers.

    “So why mess up a good thing?”

    Besides, he said, the time away helps him “clear his mind,” and he wants to spend quality time at his offseason home in Arizona.

    "I own a house in Arizona, so I do want to spend some time here," he said.

    But Allen said he will be in Minnesota to attend a benefit for Fitzgerald's late mother next weekend, and he certainly will be at Winter Park for the team's mandatory mini-camps. "Honestly, this is probably the most excited I’ve been," Allen said of the upcoming season.
    So, he's had a history of getting better results working out on his own, and he wants to continue that.

    I'm cool with that.
    So why even have these damn things, especially if the Vets (leaders on the team) ain't gonna be there?

    Is Kenechi Udeze on your shit list, too?
    He's skipping the voluntary workouts, too, you know.

    Re: Allen to skip voluntary workouts

    “I’m in phenomenal shape,” Allen said.

    Far as I'm concerned he can pretty much do whatever he wants to do during OTA's...except maybe take on a bull barehanded.

    I would assume that he spoke to Chilly about his before his announcement.

    ah ha.. nice one earlier.. i guess i should have read the article first...

    anyway, as long as you come into camp and bust ass and are in shape ready to go, i dont care if your in cabo with Jessica Simpson's sister or smoking your life away... if your a stud and are ready to go when the time comes for M-A-N-D-I-T-O-R-Y camp starts.. you can do what you want.... '

    i feel you on then needing to be there. but with continuity what's the point.. the draft hasn't even started yet.. it's not a big deal....

    Re: Allen to skip voluntary workouts


    If Jared's conditioning program gets him in better shape than the program at Winter Park, I'm all for it. Time away to reset your mind for the upcoming season, is a good thing for some people. Jared will be in the best shape of his life, with the batteries recharged his excitment for the upcoming season will be quite infectious, and will bring energy and a hunger to the team. You can't put a price on the passion and energy this guy brings.
