Bears Could Fix Defense With Jared Allen

Report: Jared Allen could be traded by Tuesday

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Vikings defensive end Jared Allen could be traded for the right price.

While that sentence generally applies to any player, theres reason to believe it particularly applies to Allen. Hes in the final year of a contract that pays him a base salary of $14.2 million, which means that hed be due to make $7.5 million over the rest of the year.

Glazer says the right price is more than a third-round pick, which could be more than a new team would want to pay for a guy in the last year of his contract unless a new deal would be part of the trade.
