What do you call a former purple people eater who is now a furry ferocious Ursus americanus?
You call him Jared Allen, the newest Chicago Bear!
Yes the Chicago Bears signed free agent Pro Bowl DE Jared Allen, adding another key element to their burgeoning defensive line. Allen, who had 11 sacks last season for the Minnesota Vikings, has 128.5 career sacks which ranks 12th on the all-time NFL list.
This move, coupled with the recent signing of free agent DE Lamarr Houston, should give the Bears a front line that growls fear into the hearts of opposing QBs.
