Allen has big goals into final season under contract with Vikings


Jared Allen is 31 years old and he's entering his tenth season in the National Football League.

The question is, will it be his last with the Minnesota Vikings?

Allen is entering the final year of his contract and is set to make more than $14 million. On Thursday, the Star Tribune asked Allen if the Vikings have approached him this offseason about restructuring his contract, because there's no guarantee the Vikings will offer him another mega-contract.

You use the word restructure and that to me makes it feel like they’d want me to take a pay cut. And if anybody asked me to take a pay cut, I’d be through the first door out of there. So no. We haven’t talked one iota. It is what it is. And we’re going to go about our business and play good ball and try to win a Super Bowl. And like I said the business stuff? We take care of that in the offseason. I have people to do that. That’s why I don’t get into it. You’re not going to hear it from me. I won’t complain. I go about my business.

That's just one of a number of questions Allen answered. Click here to see them all.
