To the people who are saying we could have had Jared Allen, may I ask how.
Remember, the Vikings had to trade for him, he didn't sign as a free agent. Here's what they gave up
First round pick in the 08 Draft (we had already traded our pick to the Patriots)
2 3rd round picks (we only had one and it was a swap with the Bears for the Brigg incident)
And they swapped their 6th rounders
Do tell me how the 49ers would have been able to trade for Jared Alled, in comparison to what the Vikings were offering. The Chiefs wouldn't have even glanced at a 49ers offer.
We could have made a worthy offer but considering we had already signed Justin Smith to a big deal there was no way in hell we were trading for Jared Allen too.
