KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Kansas City Chiefs reportedly have traded Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen to the Minnesota Vikings.
Citing a source, The Kansas City Star reported that Allen went to Minnesota on Tuesday night to sign a six-year contract worth just under $74 million with more than $31 million guaranteed. The deal would be one of the largest for a defensive player.
The Chiefs are expected to get the Vikings' first-round pick (No. 17) and both the Vikings' third-round selections (73rd and 82nd). It would give the Chiefs six picks in the first 82 players in this weekend's draft and 13 total.
The Chiefs would not confirm the trade late Tuesday, and president/general manager Carl Peterson and coach Herm Edwards were unavailable.
Allen led the NFL last season with 15 1/2 sacks.
