Chiefs send Allen to Vikings for three draft picks
NFL.com Wire Reports


The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to trade Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen to the Minnseota Vikings, reports NFL Network's Adam Schefter.

The Chiefs will receive Minnesota's first- (17th overall) and both of its third-round picks (73rd and 82nd) as compensation. Kansas City has been looking to acquire additional draft picks in an attempt to speed up coach Herm Edwards' rebuilding project for a team that lost its last nine games in 2007 and finished 4-12.

The Vikings also agreed on a new contract with Allen, which will be finalized Wednesday. Allen flew to Minnesota on Tuesday night in anticipation of Wednesday's events.

The Vikings fill one of their biggest needs by adding Allen to their front four. The Pro Bowl starter had a league-leading 15.5 sacks in 2007 along with 67 tackles, three forced fumbles and 18 pressures in only 14 games.

Jared Allen, DE
Kansas City Chiefs

2007 Stats:
Games: 14
Tackles: 64
Sacks: 15.5

» Stats: 2007 statistical leaders
» Free agency: Franchise amounts The Chiefs need offensive linemen and defensive backs, two position groups that scouts believe to be in abundance. The Chiefs already owned the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, and now have 13 selections with the trade, including five of the first 82 picks.

Before trading the 26-year-old Allen to the Vikings, the Chiefs also talked with Tampa Bay about Allen.

General manager Carl Peterson's relationship with Allen has been strained ever since Peterson, in the wake of Allen's DUI convictions, described him as "a young man at risk." Allen, who could be suspended for a season if he has another alcohol-related episode, had said he would not negotiate with Kansas City if he didn't get a contract done by next July.

After reaching an impasse, the Chiefs made Allen their franchise player on Feb. 7, but did not put the exclusive tag on him, as they did on tight end Tony Gonzalez when he was franchised in 2002.

That made it possible for Allen and his agent to talk with other clubs and be examined by their team doctors.

Allen was suspended the first two games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last season for multiple DUI convictions. But Allen says he has stopped drinking entirely, a claim backed up by close friends.

"I've seen Jared at a big party, out on the dance floor, where everybody is drinking except one person. It's Jared, and he's having the best time of everybody," said Chiefs fullback Boomer Grigsby.

In his first game back from the suspension against the Vikings, he had nine tackles, two sacks, a pressure and a pass defended. He also forced Adrian Peterson to fumble.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound Allen was drafted with a supplemental fourth-round pick out of Idaho State in 2004.

The contract he got is what makes this deal so much sweeter for me. Between the picks and the cash, Minnesota could really have all of this blow up in their face ala Herschel Walker all over again.

not to mention that is 30 MILL we can distribute to FA's in a year or two....

this move makes so much sense for a team completely rebuilding, when you really think about it...

I agree, but doesn't it also make last year's LJ deal look even crazier? How to account for the stark contrast? Does this demonstrate that Carl is in fact not calling the shots? I know, I know, DUI's, etc...but still.

Good point. Take a look:

After The Rush

The Vikings better hope that Jared Allen doesn't suffer the same fate as every other sack champion recently. They have all posted fewer sacks the year after winning the crown.

Year-----Player----------Sacks-----Next year
2007-----J.Allen----------15.5---------?
2006-----S.Merrim@n-----17----------12.5
2005-----D.Burgess-------16----------11
2004-----D.Freeney-------16----------11
2003-----M.Strahan-------18.5---------4
2002-----J.Taylor----------18.5--------13
2001-----M.Strahan--------22.5--------11
2000-----L.Glover----------17-----------8

Heck, Allen could put up more sacks. In MN, he's got Kevin Williams and Pat Williams next to him. That D Line is going to be scary

Good point. But then again, they might also steal some of his sacks. Who knows? But you're absolutely right about the their d-line, very SCARY. Looks like the Giants may have started a trend in the NFC: Spend your money on the DL.

Does the swap of 6th rounder benefit the Chiefs or the Vikes? Anybody have numbers for those picks (I'm too lazy).

Considering you pick at close to the same spot in each round, it obviously benefits the Vikings. If we have the higher pick in the 1st round, we obviously have the higher pick in each round. But I don't think it really matters. It's the freaking 6th round. By that point we will already have had 9 draft picks.

Actually the Chiefs have more than 1 6th rounder so it depends.

See Mecca's post, we have more than one 6th round pick dick head, but thanks for the holier than thou response, but it's not that easy.

It benefits the Vikings.

Look what it's done for the Royals for the past 20 years!

KC is now home to TWO major league farm clubs that develop young players and then let someone else sign them away when their rookie contract expires. Hooray.

We were coming off a playoff appearance, so I don't think it's that crazy that he thought we could keep the team competitive.

After this past season though, it looks like the higher-ups correctly realized that it's time for a rebuild.

We had two picks 170 and 187.
The Vikes had two picks as well 182 and 193.

Well then, IF we didn't come out of this with the 170 and 182nd pick, I'd say Carl got bent over. :rolleyes:

both teams have 2 6th rounders, the Chiefs picked up one from TB, and the Vikes got an extra one from Jax. I take it we are trading our own picks. Chiefs 6.04 for the Vikes 6.16?
