In between picks of our mock draft, I wanted to throw a tidbit of info out there about Jared Allen's salary. Naturally, his next deal, will be a lot bigger than his rookie 4th rounder contract. I knew we were getting JA cheap but I didn't know how cheap until I looked at his salary history.

The next three defensive ends behind Jared Allen in the 2007 sack lead -- Patrick Kerney, Mario Williams and Usi Umenyiora-- received tens of millions in yearly salary in their first years in the league. Almost no matter what JA's new contract is, the Chiefs have a great deal on their hands.
I'd love to know what bonus netted Allen $360 last year.
