Jared Allen is stupid. Let me tell you why.
#1: He chose the Vikings. He got a huge payday, an NFL record setting contract to be exact, which is why I hate hearing him say he plays for the love of the game. Really? Why didn’t you take a little less money and love the game playing for a real contender and not the Vikings? Love for the game? Now you’re stupid AND a liar.
#2: Jared Allen trains in the offseason in Mixed Martial Arts. Yeah, he’s an MMA guy apparently and trains that way in the offseason. On the surface that seems pretty cool, but if you think about it for more than four seconds you realize that is very stupid of not just him, but of the Vikings for allowing it. I follow MMA a little bit. I am not exactly an expert but injuries are so very common in MMA training, even non-sparring injuries. People accuse NFL athletes of being stupid for playing basketball in the offseason or going off roading on ATV’s. This is a whole new level of stupid and do not be surprised if Allen hurts himself somehow.
