Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen is requesting a trade after the team failed to offer the 24-year-old defensive end a long-term contract. Allen, a restricted free agent, will be tendered a contract for this upcoming season but will be an unrestricted free agent next year. For some reason, Allen talks about wanting to end his career in Kansas City; this is already on his mind at 24. The piece also notes that Allen led the league in 2006 with six fumble recoveries.
Oh, and first person to make Allen-to-the-Bengals jokes loses the thread.

Lost in the discussion of blocked punts and missed kicks following Sunday night's tie was that the defenders for both Seattle and Arizona were playing out of their minds.
