“As a matter of fact, I take it as a sign of respect that they still think that I have value,” Allen said, according to USA Today. “But I’m excited to be a Viking. I really am. I’m excited to try to right this ship, and I’m all in.”
Allen, 31, is set to make about $7.56 million the rest of this season. A source close to the discussions told USA Today that Allen was willing to work with the Vikings in the situation was right. He has been a Viking for 10 years.
“I was never like borderline getting ready to go anywhere,” Allen said Wednesday. “The hoopla―I just went about my day as normal and again, my focus is the Cowboys. I was watching film (Tuesday).”Allen has 4-1/2 sacks through seven games.
