Default Chiefs to trade Jared Allen

herm has said he has 10 picks in the draft and wouldnt mind 15. he makes no bones about it that they are rebuilding and he wants youth.

jared is off to minnesota, and then he will visit the bucs.

-as per jay glazer

Because he is an unsigned franchise player, Allen has the freedom to meet and talk to teams, but the current price tag for a team wanting to sign him is two No. 1 picks, which is a price most teams aren't willing to consider.

Yep, good luck on that one.

allen is a proven commodity and any de or dt chosen in the top 15 this year could turn out to be just an average player, or even worse, a bust.

looking at some of the vikings 1st round busts, i may be worth the gamble to get the proven commodity. (not to say i would do it or want the steelers to do it, though)

Very smart actually, especially if they get two first rounders out of it. This would be his last year in Kansas City anyway, better to get some value out of him than to just let him walk.
