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.

Everson Griffen earns his first Hoss of the Week

Oct 21 2014 12:53pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Minnesota Vikings pass rusher brought down Kyle Orton three times last Sunday, earning Stephen White's Hoss of the Week Award for Week 7. There were several very worthwhile candidates this week. Bears defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff had himself one hell of a day with three and a half sacks against the Dolphins. Broncos outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware showed he still has some life in those old ...

Why Stephen Paea Is the Chicago Bears' Most Underrated Player Through 6 Weeks

Oct 14 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Stephen Paea deserves your attention. In case you haven't noticed, the four-year defensive tackle is having a Pro Bowl season but remains the most under-the-radar player on the Bears.  Maybe it's the emergence of Willie Young, lack of productivity from Lamarr Houston and Jared Allen or Paea's low-key personality causing him to not get the attention he deserves.  Paea has four sacks throu ...

The Atlanta Falcons are 6-16 over the past 22 games, and the team is getting progressively worse—particularly on the offensive side of the football. After a 27-13 home loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Falcons head coach Mike Smith felt prompted to say, "Our young players, our old players have all contributed to this, and we have to get it fixed, and nothing is off the table in regards to what we have to do to be better."

Bears Offense Drawing Criticism, but Defense Will Ultimately Be Their Downfall

Oct 10 2014 7:49pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Over the past two weeks, the offense for the Chicago Bears has received its fair share of criticism. It's well-founded. An offense that was expected to be among the NFL's best has struggled in back-to-back losses, largely due to an appearance by Chicago's arch-nemesis. No, not Lex Luthor. It ain't Doctor Octopus either. "Bad Jay Cutler." However, while everyone wrings their hands about the state of the off ...
