    This might sound crazy but would you ever do this?

    Jared Allen has comparable figures over his last three years to Leonard Little and those happen to be his first three years in the league. He just turned 25 this month and should have many years of football left.

    STATS Last three years:

    Jarred Allen
    47 games
    163 tackles
    27.5 sacks
    10 forced fumbles
    15 passes defensed
    1 INT

    Leonard Little
    46 games
    160 tackles
    29.5 sacks
    12 forced fumbles
    7 passes defensed
    0 INT

    Okay so here is the deal:
    Try signing Jared Allen of KC. It would cost you a 1st and a 3rd. Because he is a restricted Free Agent tendered at the higher level. Trade our 2nd round pick for Jenkins.

    That would give us a DL with three protential Pro Bowlers:

    DE Little
    DT Jenkins
    DT Kennedy
    DE Allen (77 tackles last year Little had his most ever last year at 58)

    Our backups would not be to shabby either unless we tried to trade them for another area of need.

    Our backups would be:

    DE Hall
    DT Glover
    DT Wrotten
    DE Adeyanju

    Adeyanju could then have time to try to develop into Littles replacement. Allen could be around for a long time. Wrotten could try to grow into replacing Jenkins or Replace Kennedy if we decide to let him walk. Hall and Glover both would provide quality ready to step in veterans in case of injury.

    Given Allen's DUI history, I don't think I want to deal with the "drunken DEs" jokes from the opposition.

    The "J.A." I want is Jamaal Anderson.

    Then our highest pick would be a 4th rounder. I'll pass, but that was a good stat.

    very interesting , but i agree with the drunken thing here. not what the other side would say, but what WILL happen when this happens again. and it will with both of the ends . they are repeaters , and with alcoholics , trouble is the last thing they worry about .

    Little and Allen might die in a fatal head on collision in the Rams park parking lot.
