The five-time Pro Bowl defensive end will be a free agent in 2014 and hinted several different times toUSA Today’s Tom Pelissero that he’s resigned to leaving Minnesota.
“If I continue to play, you want to try to win a championship at some point,” Allen said Thursday. “Personal accolades can only go so far. I don’t want to be chasing the ring. I want to earn the ring,” Allen added. I want to be somewhere, and obviously, you’ve got to have parts in place and you’ve got to be contenders. Wherever I go, when I retire, I’m going to call them and say, ‘Hey, let me sign a one-day contract,” Allen said. “Minnesota will always be in my heart. But I don’t know what the future holds. We haven’t talked about it. I’m trying not to think about it.
Jared Allen is a special talent, and as a 10-year pro has 122 sacks and has repeatedly said he plans to keep playing after the season. I honestly feel that Jared Allen’s days are numbered in Minnesota.
