Default BREAKING NEWS - Jared Allen to Vikes

Minnesota has worked out a trade with Kansas City for DE Jared Allen.....don't these people know they keep screwing up my draft board

Chiefs will get Minnesota's 1st and two 3rd round picks. Allen has agreed to new contract, terms not announced.

with KC having 2 ,1st rd picks, that pretty much guarantees there'll be no OL worth the 23 pick......

I still think KC will select Brandon Albert at 5, but they are still going to need to replace Allen with their 17th pick....probably Merling there. The only thing that will throw a wrench in that is if Gholston is there at 5, but I think he'll be gone. If he is there, they probably pick him and then get Otah/Clady/Williams at 17. Either way, if the Jets or the Patriots REALLY want Gholston, they're going to have to trade up to at least 4, if not 3 to get him!

KC has two first round pics....

Will they take a first and a third... or a first and a fourth for our first? If the right guy is there... Say Otah (just saying), is it worth pulling the trigger to make that trade?

I wouldnt be surprised if KC didnt trade up to Atlanta at #3, to get Matt Ryan...or grabbing Chris long with the first pick and an OT with the second......but I dont see us trading up at all.

He is good but I don't think he is worth what they gave him.
