Jared Allen Prepared To Test The Free Agent Market

Vikings DE Jared Allen plans on testing the free agent market in the coming weeks, according to his agent Ken Harris.

He’s going to see what 32 teams have to offer,” Harris said, per Ian Rapoport.

This comes as little surprise given that every indication out of Minnesota has been that they will allow him field offers from prospective teams.

Allen, 31, has been an extremely productive player during his time in Minnesota, and although his 2013 season wasn’t as good as years past, he still manged to record 11.5 sacks, 52 tackles and two forced fumbles.

Veteran defensive ends like Dwight FreeneyJohn Abraham and Shaun Phillips didn’t fair to well on the open market last year, which could be an indication that Allen may find a limited amount of interest this year.

The Buccaneers and Raiders have both come up as speculative landing spots in recent weeks.

Pro Football Focus has Allen rated as the No. 34 among qualifying 4-3 defensive ends. We have him listed as the No. 3 7player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
