Maybe Jared Allen is to today’s NFL what Schneider on “One Day at a Time” was to ’80s sitcoms- the epitome of machismo in that given arena. He know Jared Allen is really into bull riding, teaming up with the Professional Bull Riders Association. He’s into hunting too.
Although he’s not into vaccinations; and that’s troubling. So like Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari, he just doesn’t go all in with science. However the Chicago Bears have gone all in with him.
The five-time NFL Pro Bowler the newest member of the Bears family: $32,000,000 over four years. 15 mil of which is guaranteed.
As you might know, the Bears had some issues on the defensive line this year. They really had some major issues in the pass rush. The acquisition of Jared Allen should help fill both of these holes.
As for the Vikings, they haven’t made much of a splash this silly season. They’ve had a lot more subtractions than additions.
Jared Allen was born in Dallas, Texas, and grew up on a ranch in California. He still dabbles in roping – hence the calf roping celebration after he sacks opposing NFL quarterbacks– and he even got bucked off the back of a few cows when he was 5 years old.
