ESPN- Jared Allen has a new home, and it will keep the defensive end chasing many of the same quarterbacks he’s pursued for the last six years. The Chicago Bears agreed to terms with Allen on a four-year deal, the team announced Wednesday. Allen’s deal could be worth up to $32 million, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. It includes $15.5 million in guaranteed money, and could void after three years and $24 million. Allen has 128.5 career sacks, 12th most in NFL history. He has seven consecutive double-digit sack seasons, including 11.5 last season in Minnesota — where he made his mark after the Vikings traded for him in 2008. The defensive end became one of the most prolific and popular players in Vikings history, coming within a half-sack of Michael Strahan’s single-season record in 2011 and making the Pro Bowl four times in his six years with the Vikings

Wow this is a great move for the Bears. I am in no way shape or form a Bears fan, but they are putting together a pretty solid team. With a (HEALTHY) Cutler and Matt Forte, the duo of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey they have a high powered offense. They terminated Julius Peppers most likely because he was from the old regime and they wanted fresh blood in there. The guy can still play but I feel like Jared Allen is a serious upgrade and would’ve been for any team. He brings that “it” factor you need for a crazy DE and he is always producing. Even on one of the worst teams in the league where he was surely double teamed every down, he put up double digit sack totals. Combine him with Lamarr Houston and that is going to be scary for opposing QBs. Also if you are a Vikings fan anytime would be good to just swallow a bunch of sleeping pills and just watch AP highlight tape until you can peacefully escape this cruel world.

AP we won’t judge you if you want to join them.
