The era of Jared Allen in Minnesota is over, but his reign of terror over NFC North quarterbacks may not be. While he may not be terrorizing anyone in the purple and gold anymore, Allen apparently has eyes set on wearing at least one of those colors in the future as he has the Green Bay Packers on his short list of teams he’d like to sign with in 2014.
According to Bill Huber from Packer Report, Green Bay is on Allen’s short list and that’s going to just tickle cheesehead fans who were sick of Allen being the one thing they had to be afraid of the Vikings for.
Could the flow of the Green Bay-to-Minnesota pipeline head the other direction?
A league source told Packer Report on Monday that former Minnesota Vikings star Jared Allen has listed the Green Bay Packers as one of his preferred destinations.
The pipeline that Huber refers to has typical run from Green Bay to Minnesota and the flow hasn’t ever really reversed. From Darren Sharper, Ryan Longwell, Greg Jennings and most notably Brett Favre, the Vikings have made a habit of scooping up veteran Packers players and it seems Green Bay is reversing the schtick on them in the most epic of ways.
If Allen lands in Green Bay, it would provide one of the most unreal story lines in football in 2014 as the Packers would have stolen away the Vikings second most prized player to use against them.
