    Re: Jared Allen to Vikings? Or Buccaneers?

    This would be fantastic!
    I am not at all excited about our position in the first round this year...Seems like any DE available at our pick doesn't really fit what we need.
    I would be so damn happy if this became a reality!

    It would solve our problem as for the pass rushing Def. We wouldn't have to blitz our LB's which'll help our pass defense

    Wow.... I think I'd jump on that one.... 1st and a 3rd is a lot, but I would say it's sort of playing it safe, as you're giving up a 3rd rounder for insurance against a bust (which any DE we draft will have)... Allen led the NFL last year in sacks, right????

    The drawback will be his contract, but we do have the contract God working for us.... so we can afford him.

    Re: Jared Allen to Vikings? Or Buccaneers?

    Lets look at this from a few different perspectives......

    a.
    He fits the mold of what the Vikes like in a FA and are willing to over spend on to get.....
    26 years old.
    4 years experience.
    Can play in the system for life of his contract.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...e?statsId=6885

    b. Both teams have the CAP to sign him and still have money to sign thier rookies.......

    2
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    $26049700
    8
    Minnesota Vikings
    $16604400


    http://www.askthecommish.com/salarycap/numbers.asp

    c.


    d.
    Who would he be playing with......


    Tampa - 2nd best defense overall (Yds per game)


    Vikings - 20th best defense overall (Yds per game)


    Tampa - 3rd total points allowed


    Vikings - 12th total points allowed

    Vikes
    91 Ray Edwards DE 23 6-5 268 2 Purdue
    73 Otis Grigsby DE 27 6-3 260 2 Kentucky
    [s]99 Erasmus James DE 25 6-4 266 3 Wisconsin [/s]
    92 Jayme Mitchell DE 24 6-6 285 2 Mississippi
    96 Brian Robison DE 24 6-3 267 R Texas
    [s]95 Kenechi Udeze DE 25 6-3 281 4 USC [/s]
    97 Kenderick Allen DT 29 6-5 328 5 LSU
    90 Fred Evans DT 24 6-4 305 2 Texas State

    93 Kevin Williams DT 27 6-5 311 5 Oklahoma State
    94 Pat Williams DT 35 6-3 317 11 Texas A&M
    95 Ellis Wyms DT 29 6-3 290 7 Mississippi State

    Tampa
    90 Gaines Adams DE 24 6-5 260 R Clemson
    92 Charles Bennett DE 25 6-3 245 2 Clemson
    93 Kevin Carter DE 34 6-6 305 13 Florida
    94 Marques Douglas DE 31 6-2 292 7 Howard
    79 Marquies Gunn DE 24 6-4 264 R Auburn
    71 Jovan Haye DE 25 6-2 285 3 Vanderbilt
    96 Jimmy Wilkerson DE 27 6-2 290 5 Oklahoma
    95 Chris Hovan DT 29 6-2 298 8 Boston College
    96 Greg Peterson DT 24 6-5 286 R North Carolina Central
    98 Ryan Sims DT 27 6-4 315 6 North Carolina
    91 Greg White DL 28 6-3 268 1 Minnesota

    e.
    KC wouldn't have to worry about trading to either team as both Tampa and Vikes are NFC and not AFC teams limiting how many times Jared would play them.

    f.
    Both teams run the same defense.

    A few things to consider about the bucs......

    Sizing up the roster

    The roster limit during the offseason and training camp is 80. The Bucs are at 77, meaning they will need to release players as they sign picks.

    It sounds like a lot of bodies, until you consider that the Bucs train in the heat of Central Florida. At least three or four of those players could start the season on the physically unable to perform list. Another half-dozen or so will be limited to one practice per day. There also are typically three or four players out with minor injuries.

    "It's going to change the way we practice," Gruden said of the limited roster.

    Five QBs who have won games for Tampa Bay

    Gruden tossed this fun fact out: Five of the six quarterbacks on the roster have won games for Tampa Bay. Jake Plummer is the odd man out (for a lot of reasons). Their records, including playoffs: Jeff Garcia (8-6), Brian Griese (10-7), Chris Simms (7-9), Luke McCown (1-2), Bruce Gradkowski (3-8).

    I hope we don't let him get out the door as he could go with the better D as a first option.
    Ole Bryzcheapski better have been hording money for just such a pick.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    LOL - if the Vikings trade away their first-round pick - can I get a refund on my draft party ticket?

    =Z=
    But then we would just get to meet Jared Allen instead...it might turn out even BETTER than you thought.
    A party is STILL a party!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
