So is Jared Allen. Allen is coming off another double digit sack year. He had 11 last season, but posted of them late in the season after the Vikes playoff hopes were over.

Jared Allen - Vikings Defensive End: “The opportunity to improve on where we were last year. Last year was so disappointing as a whole, to come back now with a fresh start and reach the potential where we were two years ago. The NFC Championship game and the Super Bowl.”

One other note from Mankato today, Adrian Peterson's fiancee had a baby boy. Peterson back at practice on Friday.
