Ohh.. this could turn out to be some fun. A little manufactured drama across the Mississippi. After 2008, it would be fun to sit and watch this situation unravel more.

At least he is honest and it is about the money.

Jared Allen has “absolutely no idea” if he’ll stay with the Vikings

Earlier this week, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said that he and the Vikings “haven’t talked one iota” about a new contract, but you can’t say the same about his conversations with the media.

Allen told Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he has “absolutely no idea” where he will wind up playing in 2014 after his contract, which will pay him more than $14 million in 2013, with the Vikings expires. He’s seen veteran teammates like Matt Birk and Antoine Winfield wind up heading elsewhere and knows that this might be it for him in Minnesota, something that he admits would not be the case in his best-case scenario.

“Best-case scenario would have been that we would have never gotten to this point. Best-case scenario would have been the organization would have gotten something done a few years back,” Allen said. “Well ya know what? That’s not the case. And I understand it. … I’m just happy I’m in a spot where both sides are honoring the contract.”

And unravel it will.
You can lay to that!
An unstable personality and a wacko franchise will make for some good drama.
If only Mike Tice were still the coach, he could add some good sound bites to this comedy of errors in vikingville.[laughing]

Does it really even matter? He's coming off a knee injury and is in his golden years anyway. I hope they break the bank on him, AGAIN.

Point was, there are no certainties with this situation. I'd say it's a 50/50 chance he is signed in Purple again.

They'll be letting him walk, and Williams too. Spielmen is actually getting smarter with time. Although the Greg Jennings signing will be biting him in the ass eventually.

I can completely see Williams walking. Sounds like he was not happy at all about the restructure (and shortening) of his contract. But I still think if Allen has a decent year this season, he'll still test the market and end up in Purple anyway. Of course, that's all hinging on him actually having a decent year.

I'll still defend the Jennings signing with simple economics: More the need = more value = bigger transaction. Simply put, if the Vikings had a true #1 WR, they wouldn't have offered as much as they did. Wasn't so much about league-wide value as it was the team's need.

But hey, if we compare it to the Bernard Berrian signing, the Vikings got a STEAL with Jennings. [grin1]

Kind of makes you long for the days of Carter, Moss, and Reed? Now that was a crew of receivers that could make any quarterback look good.

You really should tweak that function so that a quote can't changed, but in this case, it's just damn funny - and since Numbnuts hasn't responded - the three inch thing is probably true. Nice work Zero.

gbguy20 (2h) : we knew what you meant. your point was still clear
Zero2Cool (15h) : Oops, Smith was CB, not RB. My mistake. Etiher way, it was about the KR/PR not the position
gbguy20 (15h) : yep
Zero2Cool (15h) : What do you mean? They cut a RB who was the KR/PR, so they signed someone who is KR/PR, who happens to be RB
Cheesey (18h) : I don’t get it. Going after more RBs. We NEED guys that can get separation and catch passes.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Tyler Ervin taking reps with the running backs at practice today. Ervin, 5-foot-10, 192lbs., age 26, once said he’s tried to model his game after Darren Sproles. Best 40 time was 4.41 at Combine.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Put the Packers in a dome. They are a soft team. They need protection from the weather.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Packers go on the road each game, -- I say GOOD!
Nonstopdrivel (3-Dec) : The biggest problem with being a lower seed is that, unless everything falls your way, you're going to be on the road for the entirety of the playoffs.
KRK (3-Dec) : He sucks, they can have him.
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : Dolphins have claimed speedy WR Trevor Davis off of waivers from the Raiders,
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : It might be easier to face Dallas on the road rather than the Vikes or 49ers at home
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : I meant 5th seed.
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : Would it be better to be the 4th seed in the playoffs rather than the 3rd?
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has been fired.
Cheesey (3-Dec) : Seattle took care of the Vikings for us!
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : We better not bring Davis back.
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : I don't think it was a conditional 6th so yes we do
gbguy20 (3-Dec) : do we still get our draft pick or....?
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : Trevor Davis cut by the Raiders
Mucky Tundra (3-Dec) : And they need Dallas to lose all 4 of their remaining games
Mucky Tundra (3-Dec) : For the Skins to win the East, they need to win out, philly to win vs Dallas and lose their other 3 games
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Packers release Tremon Smith.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Yeah—in a random drawing.
Porforis (2-Dec) : At 33, I still could win a spot on an NFL roster.
Mucky Tundra (2-Dec) : At 3-9, the Washington Redskins could still win the NFC East
gbguy20 (2-Dec) : definitely not
Zero2Cool (2-Dec) : nope
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Could we take this to the chat, so I don't have to keep refreshing?
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : DeShaun Watson is quite the QB. Thank goodness the Bears to Trubisky
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : Of course the Pats get the call
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : No blizzards. Just fog that flash-froze to the pavement.
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : Were all those people waiting for Damarious Randall to show up?
gbguy20 (2-Dec) : 2 days of blizzards finally finished here this afternoon. no accidents to report
gbguy20 (2-Dec) : hmm
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : What should have been a five-hour trip took nine.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : No, I was stranded on the interstate for hours in the Pittsburgh viewing area as crews rushed to clear massive pileups triggered by flash icing.
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : You missed the game NSD. Hopefully you were pulling foreign objects out of peoples rectums as an excuse.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : I'll watch it with you, sweetie.
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : Anyone watching the Sunday nighter? I am afraid the Texans are scamming into watching a Pats comeback when I should be sleeping
beast (2-Dec) : I honestly wonder if the NFL purposely made it backfire to undo it.
Zero2Cool (2-Dec) : yes
Mucky Tundra (2-Dec) : anyone see the Dolphins trick play?
gbguy20 (1-Dec) : the experiment has failed miserably plus backfired
gbguy20 (1-Dec) : should just be done after this year
TheKanataThrilla (1-Dec) : Pass Interference review is certainly a work in progress
gbguy20 (1-Dec) : dude is a headcase. the death threat excuse is just a convenient cover story
buckeyepackfan (1-Dec) : Bulaga "The Warrior" is active!
buckeyepackfan (1-Dec) : Packers inactives 1 WR Ryan Grant 22 RB Dexter Williams 25 S Will Redmond 28 CB Tony Brown 29 CB Ka'dar Hollman 67 G/T Adam Pankey 73 T Yosh Nijman
Zero2Cool (1-Dec) : Freddie Kitchens rules out a healthy Damarious Randall
