Top 5 greatest Jared Allen memories as a Viking


Jared Allen is bound for Chicago and instead of chasing quarterbacks around the field for the Vikings, he will now be chasing Vikings quarterbacks around the field for the next few years.

Allen signed a four-year $32 million contract with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday, bringing an end to his six years in Minnesota.

Over that time Allen made a lot of memories for the Vikings. We here at Bring Me The News have narrowed those memories down to our five favorites.
