Just caught part of the 7:30 AM 810 Sports radio interview with Jared Allen. I only caught the first few minutes, which proved to be nothing groundbreaking. Jared Allen wants a long term contract. He's put his problems behind him. He wants to stay in Kansas City but only if he has a long term contract. Blah. Blah. Blah. I'm beginning to think that Jared Allen is afraid of his own future, which is fueling his own strong desire to get more money down on paper. I'm sure his agent is pushing him a lot but I'm not confident that Jared Allen's drinking problems are behind him. Just a hunch. Any long term deal with him better include some provision for backing out if his drinking becomes a problem again. swift247 throws around some Jared Allen trade possibilities in this diary.
