Jared Allen update
The latest word out of Minneapolis, according to the Star-Tribune newspaper, is that Jared Allen is on the Vikings' premises, as expected.
The paper draws the logical conclusion that there is serious talk about a contract because it's believed Allen's agent, Ken Harris, is present, too. It's also suggested that an agreement on the terms of a potential trade between the Chiefs and Vikings might be close.
We'll update you when there's more to report. Right now, Allen is still tentatively scheduled to arrive here early next week. Whether that changes likely depends on how things go the rest of the day in Minny.
We got word from a very reliable source late Thursday afternoon that this deal was a long way from done with either the Vikings or Bucs. But things can change quickly when it comes to negotiations.
