Jared Allen was expensive for the Bears, but hes cheap for the Panthers

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I hope he enjoys the smell when he comes back to New Orleans! The trade of Jared Allen from the Bears to the Panthers is the typical move of an aging veteran going from a bad team to a playoff ...

The trade of Jared Allen from the Bears to the Panthers is the typical move of an aging veteran going from a bad team to a playoff contender, but with a twist: The bad team absorbed almost all of his pay before sending him packing.

Good deal for the Panthers alright, short term though.

I'm so disappointed! No Pace conspiracy theories as to why he "gave" a DE to another NFC South team.

The Bears are having a fire sale. I hear Alshon Jeffrey can be had.
