Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has been the subject of trade rumors and could find himself being dealt before Tuesday's trade deadline.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen could be traded before the Oct. 29 trade deadline.

Yahoo! Sports' Eric Edholm wrote on Oct. 28 that Allen has been the subject of various trade rumors with the Vikings sputtering to a 1-6 start. Edholm adds Allen may not want to be in Minnesota anymore as he is going to be a free agent. 

He also expressed his disappointment with his defensive teammates after a 44-31 loss to their NFC North division rivals, the Green Bay Packers. He said,"I've never played on a defense this bad." 

Team circumstances may lead to Allen getting traded, but Edholm points out it's not clear "if Allen is trying to get traded." Edholm cites VikingUpdate.com's Tim Yotter, who was able to get Allen's thoughts on the matter.

"Honestly, I'm not even going to address it. I'm not going to speculate on something that I haven't had a conversation about and I'm not going and I'm not going to speculate on something that hasn't happened. I cross all bridges when I get to them and right now I'm trying to figure out a way to make this defense better...

"You know what? It's not even something I've got to worry about right now. I got no control over that stuff. It is what it is." 

Allen also spoke with Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press after the game against Green Bay. Tomasson asked the Vikings defensive end if that particular game could have been his last in a Minnesota uniform. 

"We'll see. It would be a crappy way to go out, wouldn't it?

"All I'm going to say is nothing surprises me in this league. But it's not a conversation I've had...If something comes along, I'll deal with it when it happens." 

ESPN's Ben Goessling wroteon Oct. 29 it make sense to trade Allen on several fronts: more cap space, more playing time for defensive end Everson Griffen and more flexibility in fixing a shoddy defense. He is on the last year of a five-year, $72 million contract.

Could Jared Allen, a five-time Pro Bowler, possibly have played his last down as a Minnesota Viking? Stay tuned.

Kyle Fuller Looks Like Worthy Successor to Charles Tillman in Bears Secondary

Sep 15 2014 4:49pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A good majority of Bears fans cried foul when general manager Phil Emery selected a cornerback over the team's greater need of a safety in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. That cornerback is Kyle Fuller. Yes, the same Kyle Fuller who had two interceptions in Sunday night's comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers. Fuller's two picks completely changed the momentum of the game. The belief back in May that a safety was needed ...

The 49ers and Bears were called for 26 penalties, and numerous declined penalties. We take a look at two in particular.

Chicago Bears May Have Found Defensive Spark to Contend with NFC Heavyweights

Sep 15 2014 12:17am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Chicago Bears pulled off one of the more improbable wins of the young 2014 season, coming back from 17 points down in the first half to beat the San Francisco 49ers on the road for the first time since 1985. Surprisingly, it was Chicago's defense that provided the winning spark against one of the NFC's heavyweights. A week after struggling with the Buffalo Bills at home, the Bears caused four 49ers tu ...

The 49ers and Bears square off on Sunday, so it's time for a big, fat preview of the key storylines. We focus on the read option and dealing with the loss of NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith. There’s a good chance than when you think of San Francisco 49ers and the Chicago Bears, the first thing that comes to mind is defense. For the Bears, that defense-first identity is something that extends back as far as the franchise as been in existence. For the 49ers, a ...
