"John Clayton just said on ESPN the Vikes and KC are days away from a deal and McKinney could POSSIBLY be part of the deal."


2.
"Michael Smith of ESPN appears to be saying negotiations are now down to whether the chiefs get our #73 or #82 pick. Even if it's true, we still need to work things out on Allen's side."

Update at 6:55 p.m.: Don’t get too excited folks, no major news for you at this point. Just got done filing a story for the print edition that Allen and his agent, Ken Harris, were indeed still at Winter Park this afternoon talking with Vikings officials. What isn’t clear — and what we’re trying to track down — is if Allen is going to remain in town on Sunday. He arrived Thursday and at some point you’d think he’ll want to get back to San Jose.

Remember, Allen also is scheduled to visit with Tampa Bay early this week. Of course, the Vikings would love for him to cancel that trip because he’s a member of the purple but at this point it appears he could be going to Florida. By the way, Allen’s agent, Ken Harris, is based in the Tampa area.

McKinnie was arrested in February (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/02/24/mckinnie-gets-pinched-in-miami/) after allegedly spitting in the face of a bouncer at a nightclub, shoving a camera phone into his face, and slamming a heavy pole over his head.

McKinnie did not appear in court, and his lawyer and prosecutors said they have not reached a plea deal.
The Vikings have said they are taking a wait-and-see approach and will not discipline McKinnie, one of their highest-paid and most important players, until the legal case has reached a conclusion. In 2005 the NFL (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/04/11/june-trial-date-set-for-mckinnie/#) fined McKinnie a game check for his role in the Vikings’ infamous boat party (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Vikings_boat_party_scandal).

McKinnie isn't going to be part of the deal. He's not that great, he's got legal problems, he'll be 29 in a few months, and taking him would mean less draft picks in return.

The Vikings are probably trying to include him in the deal, not the Chiefs.

That date isn't relevant to the Jared Allen situation in any way that I can tell, because he was not an exclusive right franchise player (that date would come into play in determining what his salary in 2008 would be if he was exclusive rights, but he's not...). The only important date with him that I'm aware of is July 15th, because after that point he can't be signed for more than 1 year.

The latest from PFT:


VIKES CAN SIGN ALLEN POST-DRAFT
Posted by Mike Florio on April 19, 2008, 11:04 p.m.

Earlier on Saturday, we floated the possibility of the Minnesota Vikings signing Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen to an offer sheet after the 2008 draft. If the Chiefs choose not to match the offer, they would be stuck with the Vikings’ first-round draft picks in 2009 and 2010.

Several readers asked whether such a move would be permissible, citing the Friday, April 18 deadline for signing players to offer sheets. Though vague, the CBA seemed to indicate that the pre-draft deadline applies only to restricted free agents, and not to franchise players. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed for us that there is no pre-draft deadline for signing franchise players to offer sheets.

Thus, if the Vikings believe that the team is going to be a solid contender over the next few years in a so-so NFC North (especially after Brett Favre’s retirement), why not make the run at Allen after the draft? The first-round picks in 2009 and 2010 will be low.

They’ll be even lower if the players whom the Vikes land in a 2008 draft that is deep but not top-heavy become solid contributors.

In our view, it’s a no-brainer. The Vikings should sign Allen to an offer sheet with a poison pill the moment after exercising the 17th overall selection in round one.

Florio is a tard. First of all, a top 5 pick now + 2 first rounders for the 2 years after = the bees knees. Acting like the Vikings are somehow getting away with something by doing that is absurd. Ask them how they feel about it this time in 2009. Or better yet, in 2010 when they have two straight years of no first-round pick.

But the poison pill stuff is so 2 years ago. No team has done it since the Vikings and Seahawks fought each other. But if someone was to bring it back, it sure as hell wouldn't be the Vikings doing it AGAIN after the reaming their buttholes took from the league the first time. The reaction to that would be so funny that I almost hope they do it.

Read's Nick's editorial. The Vikings aren't going to go the offer sheet route:

The Vikings are in panic mode because they know if Allen leaves town, the chance to secure his services will diminish significantly. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf told the Minnesota Tribune last week that the team has done their homework on Allen and has no intention of signing him to an offer sheet. Wilf indicated that sending the Vikings 2008 and 2009 first-round draft picks was too steep a price to pay for Allen.

http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/17945759.html

Allen spent a second full day at Winter Park on Saturday meeting with team officials, but NFL rules put a 48-hour limit on such visits. The Vikings will continue discussions with Allen's agent, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, and trade talks also are ongoing between the team and the Chiefs. Allen, meanwhile, is scheduled to visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers early this week.

DON'T PRINT THAT

It appears the Vikings could end up with premier pass rusher Jared Allen of the Kansas City Chiefs, which is their preferred solution to their defensive end quandary.

There is no risk regarding Allen's ability; the risk is his history. But even the pass rusher the Vikings would hope to get with their No. 17 pick in Saturday's draft, Derrick Harvey of Florida, would be a risk because he's unproven. Allen (15 1/2 sacks last season) is proven.

The Vikings have the salary-cap space to sign Allen, 26. The initial offer is expected to be in the $60 million, six-year range, with $20 million guaranteed. If the Vikings are unable to acquire Allen, they are expected to hope to get lucky at the draft. Harvey is the obvious choice if he's available at No. 17. Then the Vikings would hope he's the pass rusher many scouts project him to be.

If the Allen deal folds, and Harvey isn't available, then decisions get tougher for the Vikings. Is defensive end Phillip Merling of Clemson healthy? Is he quick enough? The Vikings could take Merling at No. 17, but that's clearly a risk. Minnesota also could wait until the second round to take a defensive end.

At any given pick in the draft, there usually are a small cluster of players with similar grades. Plan D for the Vikings would be to pick the highest-rated player with a position needed. For Minnesota, that would be offensive tackle because of the unclear status and unpredictability of Bryant McKinnie. It's a tragedy that Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson isn't supported by better offensive tackles.

The draft's first round is rich in tackles, and one of the top five could slide to No. 17, notably left tackle Chris Williams of Vanderbilt.

Allen is all about being an attention whore
contract negotiation is a perfect op
I don't see him gone now like I did before

Hope for two high picks or that a deal will get done before draft?

Hope that Allen remains in KC.

I wonder how many times the Vikes can use the poison pill approach before they're ostracized by all other GMs around the league?

I've been religiously signing on daily hoping for news on JA.

This whole MN waiting until after the draft to sign him is depressing. I want something now and MN's future draft picks will be higher in the coming years since the NFCW is going to suck for a while.

2 first round picks is better by any measure, even if we don't get anything until next year.

You're probably right. But I'm impatient. I haven't watched a Chief's SB win since I was 9.

He's gone. Game changing DE's who play full speed are few in this league and there are a few teams that could really benefit by adding him now. Minnesota isn't the only one interested, and don't be surprised if sometime this week we learn of another team or two expressing their interest.

Lastly, don't be surprised, if on the day of the draft, some team makes a surprise trade for JA 'cause Minnesota didn't jump when they had the chance.

Eagles | Team interested in Allen?
Mon, 21 Apr 2008 07:33:01 -0700

John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the Philadelphia Eagles are a dark horse team that could jump in the mix for the services of Kansas City Chiefs DL Jared Allen. The team could potentially include CB Lito Sheppard and a package of draft picks as the team has four choices between rounds two and four in the NFL Draft, as well as 11 picks overall.

That could be the best compensation package yet, depending on the draft choices offered.
