    Chiefs | Allen requests trade
    Sun, 25 Feb 2007 06:46:43 -0800

    Elizabeth Merrill and Randy Covitz, of the Kansas City Star, report Kansas City Chiefs DE Jared Allen has requested a trade from the team due to a contract squabble. Allen formally requested the trade when a meeting between his agent and the team did not produce a contract proposal. The team, instead, plans to tender the restricted free agent March 1. Both sides are considered far apart on an extension, according to Allen's agent. "It doesn't look like my future is going to be (in Kansas City)," Allen said. "I wanted to finish my career there." "I feel shocked and hurt. Requesting a trade was probably the toughest thing I've had to do. It's nothing personal against the town of Kansas City and the fans. It's been great. (But) it doesn't look like my future is going to be there, and I have to accept that. That's why this is so hard. All the hard work I've put in, the blood, sweat and tearsÂ…I wanted to finish my career there. I was led to believe I was going to."

    I'd trade a late Day 1 pick for the guy. He is a proven starter with plenty of potential however his drinking problems devalue him.

    I could also see Pitt being interested if Tomlin makes the move to the 4-3. They are still solid and could probably get away with giving up the pick even though it's not in the Steelers nature to do so. Denver is the obvious possibility, but I can't see KC letting Allen go to a rival. Anyone not thinking Allen will net anything less than a first rounder hasn't watched the guy play.

    I could see Jacksonville perhaps giving a call on this one.

    I could see that trade happening. Maybe a late 2nd day pick would need to be added. A trade inside the same division is always less likely though..

    Yea we should sign him, but give into his ridiculous demands? He needs to bring his price down first.

    If we do trade him I think we'd ask for something rediculous in return.
    Who would hold out of Herm's training camps? They've gained a reputation as player friendly and some of the easiest picnics to attend in the NFL. As long as his players are happy, Herm doesn't care how out of shape they are.

    KC should really try to resolve this issue. They've been trying to build this defense and he and Hali are a good pair of DEs that they should try to keep together.

    I can't see them getting muhc for him so I wouldn't be to eager to trade him for a day 2 pick.

    I wonder who would want him. Some teams in desperate need for a DE like the Broncos maybe.
    *Raises Hand*

    You already know Ceratto is calling the Chiefs trying to work something out...

    If the Redskins get him, this would almost solidify Branch or Okoye as their pick.

    I agree 110% with you.

    Seems like Minnesota would be a good fit for him. He would be able to be dominant with their tackles. Not sure if Minnesota would go for it with their supposed stress on high character players.

    I don't think he's going anywhere. CP is going to give him the highest tender (1st & 3rd), which nobody will be willing to give up, and I expect Allen to have a new deal sometime during the 2007 season.
