we could have had him on draft day! Is he used up? Is he still the FREAK, or just Jevon Kearse?

He's an undersized speed rusher who's lost a couple of steps due to frequent injuries. This just leaves him undersized. That being said, I would take a flyer on him if the price was right.

Offer him an incentive-based contract and use him as a situational pass rusher...kind of like Johnstone.

I here Jason Taylor is gonna be out of Miami, I think that's who we should focus on if it happens. Taylor is getting old too but man he still has the talent.

Could be a good fill in for the need for the speed rush, but at 31 with the seriousness of the leg and knee injuiries he has had, unless they can get him for little money, I think it would be an unwise investment...granted there isn't much for defensive ends on the free agency market but he certainly wouldn't "fix" the defense

He is just a "name" now. I don't know how much he has left....

He was the defensive player of the year in 06 he's got more left than what we have on the ends now. I like the idea of the little money thing, wouldn't pay top price but I think it would be a good investment.

Yeah, if he will take a nice paycut or an incentive contract that would be nice!

To much to loose, we'd have to give up our 1st round draft picks for the next 2 seasons and we'd have to sign him to a huge contract. You guys think Berrian's contract was huge, then you will have a heart attack when see what we'd pay Allen haha.

to much to gain...we'd have the best d-line in the nfl with a new young pass rushing stud. why would it cost 2-1st round pics? even if it did your still have no guarentees in 1st round pics...there's a couple diamonds but mostly they turn out to be busters...and they still get paid like they are big time players.

Allen has the franchise tag on him and if you are franchised and get traded it cost the other team 2 first round picks. With Allem being franchised the Chiefs have to pay him average of the top 5 salaries in the league at his position. I believe teams can franchise 1 UFA off their team a year. Say the Vikes franchised Mewelde Moore, we would have to pay him top 5 averaged salary at the RB position or trade him and get 2 1st rounders. I believe 2 1st rounders apply to all franchise tags.

i smell all sorts of rookies in here lol

you only have to give up 2-1st round picks if you try to sign a franchise player as a free agent...then that team has the option to take your 2-1st round picks or match the offer to keep him.

a team can trade their franchise player for whatever they want...if they have a feeling they are gonna lose him next season and get nothing in return they will trade him.

corey williams was the packers franchise player this season and was traded to the browns for a 2nd round pick in this years draft.

worst case scenerio is they dont want to trade him but they would for a decent offer we could get him for this yrs 17th pick but we have 2-3rds and 2-6ths this year along with the other picks and next yrs 1st which would be towards the end of the 1st round cause we'd go deep in the playoffs adding a player like allen.

we'd have a dominate DE pass rusher and matched with the williams it would be over.

Jared Allen is also a young not totally proven player. He had a huge year...but so did scott mitchel one time...

Folks said the same thing about Moss a couple years ago.... you just never know. He would have to be used in spot duty...playing only on passing downs. For a cheap, incentive laiden contract I think he Kearse would be great, but no big money!

jared allen is not proven? how much proof do you need?

4 seasons

61 games

230 tackles

43 sacks

13 forced fumbles and an int

the guy missed the first 2 games of the season last year and recorded 65 tackles, 15.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles.

looks to me like he's been dominant since day 1

Not worth any 1st round, in my opinion.

he got the franchise tag but he's available for a price.

we'd have to either work a trade out for him with the chiefs or if we signed him without their permission they'd have a chance to match our offer which they won't or take 2-1st round picks.

signing him without a trade would be spendy because we'd have to give up 2-1st round picks but he's easily a top DE in the nfl if not the best DE in the nfl. his talent is still rising and he's only 25...on a D line of the chiefs this guys see's double and triple teams every play and still gets those #s...imagine him next to the williamson bros lol

if a trade couldn't be reached i wouldn't mind as a fan if we gave up the 17th selection this year and next yrs 1st...with allen we'd go deep in the playoffs and would be giving up a mid to late 20's 1st round pick.

he'd be the answer...he'd want big money but we also wouldn't have to pay 2-1st round players...the vikes still have 2-3rds and 2-6th round picks this yr also for depth and what not.

WOW coach, I have never heard anyone who thought Moss was used up! I think his ego got the best of him in going to Oakland. But, I would have never said, and never heard anyone else say he was over. The guy can flat out do stuff most others can't.... it's just a matter of finding the team, or players that make him do that.

Now Kearse, with the injuries and all, that makes me more concearned. But who knows, the Vikes have a way of making older guys, come back to prime for a season or two.....

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
