All you homers out there better say thank you to king carl before you go to bed. I sure will.
Found this little tidbit of information while I study for sociology.
PFT: We received a text message and a phone call late Saturday/early Sunday from a league source who shared with us a curious development regarding the Minnesota Vikings' ongoing efforts to acquire Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen.
Per the source, the Vikings are "likely" to sign Allen to an offer sheet after next weekend's draft, if a "fair" trade can't be worked out before then.
The move meshes with the idea that came us to like an acorn to a blind squirrel on Saturday. With the Chiefs reportedly wanting a first-round pick and a second-round pick for Allen, why not simply nab Allen with a poison-pilled offer sheet and foist on the Chiefs the Vikings' first-round picks in 2009 and 2010?
This wouldn't benefit us this year by any means, but anytime you get two 1st round picks for 1 player, that is a major win for your franchise. The only player I wouldn't trade away for two 1st rounders is peyton manning, but even tom brady would be part of a deal that big. Anyways, this made my day and thought it might excite some people here.
