This does kinda paint a picture of what's coming. I'm sure they will be resigning Griffen and I agree that needs to be a priority, he is so versatile with a lot of ability. Allen is such a tough one and this where the business side of things will probably see him go. Reality is we need cap space and there will be a number of players IMO that will need to take a price cut from there current contracts in order to stay with the team. This one will be on Allen, he'll more than likely get a few contract offers with big dollars attached and/or teams with realistic Super Bowl goals...two things any realistic player would want. Allen is a different type of person though and what seems to be important to him may be enough to take that pay cut and finish his career a Viking. I do agree that if there is no chance at signing him then make that trade....sadly that won't happen as it would have a number of fans totally pissed and an admission that the team is giving up on the season.......that said, we lose one the next 2 games then trade away as the season is done anyway.
