    i really wanted this guy before he signed with minny but he didnt fit our scheme. I love this guys tenacity and just think he brings a great swagger with him. I would love to sign him to a 2-3 year deal . I think we would have a huge impact with out team , he is also a clutch player unlike some of our current DL. Here is the deal ...

    we sign Allen , we keep ware (and he redoes his salary ) we re-sign selvie to a cheap deal and we draft a DE in the 1st or 2nd round.

    Allen DT - DT Ware
    selvie Rookie

    plenty of pass rush.

    If the vikings lose again and go 1-5 we need to call and talk a trade to get Allen and Kevin Williams. Both will be free agents next year so we could get both for cheap.

    No. We need young talent, not one foot out the door, cap sucking talent. We've got a few of those and they're weighing us down.

    The Vikings are scratching their heads, wondering what happened to their pass rush, themselves.

    we need more than one. Kind of hard to rely on a rookie these days. I would like to resign spencer or sign allen to a 2 year deal and draft another DE in the 1st 3 rounds.

    No on Spencer. Allen is better, most likely cheaper, and brings a great locker room presence. I wouldn't mind Allen for 2 years as a stop-gap guy IF we can get him for real cheap. We need new young DEs, but you can't expect immediate impact starters out of rookies. Even if we drafted a DE with our 1st round pick, we'd still need someone else. That's why I don't mind Allen IF he comes very cheap. I don't mind acquiring veterans if they're cheap. The problem is when you give a 30 year old a max contract.
