    Per NFL.com's Breaking News ticker...


    Yes! Now the question is, what did we give up?

    Hopefully not the farm.

    I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it is just a 1st and 3rd.


    I heard Childress was being considered to coach the US Olympic bobsled team. They figure he can get a team to go downhill faster than anyone.

            Well, on another board, another guy who claims to be connected posted that we (as Vikings fans) would be happy with the terms of the deal.

            I don't know if he's legit, or how "happy" is defined, but take it for what it's worth.

              A first and two thirds is what I just heard.

              I hope one of them is in 2009.

                        Holy ridiculously huge contract, Batman!

                        From Pro Football Talk:

                        In addition to the three 2008 draft picks that the Minnesota Vikings gave up in order to acquire the rights to defensive end Jared Allen, the Vikes have made defensive end Jared Allen the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.
                        Per Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, Allen will get a six-year, $74 million deal, with $31 million in guaranteed money.
                        Actually, the guarantee is $31,000,069. That’s right . . . “Wine ‘em, dine ‘em, 69 ‘em.”
                        The deal surpasses the deal paid a year ago by the Colts to defensive end Dwight Freeney, with $30 million guaranteed on a six-year, $72 million contract.
                        The risk that the Vikings are taking is huge, given Allen’s history with the whole glug-glug, vroom-vroom thing. But it’s apparent that the Vikings have done plenty of homework, and are comfortable that Allen’s drinking days are behind him.

                            I have to imagine a large portion of the guaranteed money will be in roster bonuses and the like, stuff that won't count against the salary cap if he craps out/boozes and gets cut.

                              Huge difference.

                              In the Walker trade, the Vikes mortgaged the future for him (something like 3 first rounders and 3 2nd rounders).

                              Here, the Vikes mortgage less than 1 draft and a large contract.
