  Allen reportedly nixed a recent trade to Seattle because he refused to renegotiate his contract
Even if that is true, how does that even relate to him coming back next year.  I would say from Allen's comments about being traded, he probably didn't want to take a pay cut AND relocate.  He has been rather loyal IMO, he didn't fuss or hold out after his record year, as he shouldn't because he is making good money.  But he is getting up there in years, I think he may value consistency over chasing around the country.

 

Of course, his opinion on the coaching staff may be a deciding factor, but who knows.

I hope so. I know I want him back. It's important that he come back. And it's not only the on the field value but the leadership part. They found how much of an impact was missing by losing Winfield.

I'd take Allen over Griffen, if the money is the same.  Allen has dropped off, but some has to do with the defense.   I hope he stays - he is fan-friendly and does some great charity work with our military veterans.

Maybe you need to interview him and let him know.  ;)

I requested an interview with Jared Allen, and gave backups choices of Joe Webb and Cordarrelle Patterson.  The Vikings Media department approached Joe Webb first, and he accepted.  So, maybe some day soon.  We have offered Jared Allen a platform at VikeFans.com to publicize the non-profit Wounded Warriors he is so active with.  So, we will see.

JA is one of my favorite Vikes ever.  His production is down some this year but I'd still love to see him come back next year.

Why?  I haven't seen much this year to justify "star" treatment.

I think he did not want to renegotiate his contract was the fact that he is making a boatload this final year of his contract, because he realizes he wont be getting another huge Payday at his age and inferior play from the past. He knew he needed to keep the big bucks this year - and even if he renegotiated his contract, Im sure there would be a bunch of non-guaranteed cash. Too risky and probably would be losing out $$ if he did. 

By keeping his big $ this year, he will be more open to taking a one - three year contract at much less pay than he has received in his prime.

And I agree as well.  Everson has had a couple monster games and flashed but he is not in Jared Allen's league.  That has to be balanced of course with the potential going forward and age but I think Jared has another nice couple years left in the tank.
