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.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
