Jared Allen retires
Veteran NFL defensive end Jared Allen has retired. “I just want to say thank you for an amazing 12-year career,” Allen said. “This was the part where I was gonna ride off into the sunset. But seeing how there’s no sunset, I'm just gonna ride off." Allen had 136 career sacks. He had 22 sacks in 2011 with the Minnesota Vikings. Allen began his career with the Kansas City Chiefs and ended it with the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl.
