Vikings | Jared Allen healthy, pondering future

Minnesota Vikings DE Jared Allen (knee, shoulder), who's a free agent after this year, has "absolutely no idea" where he'll wind up in 2014. "Best-case scenario would have been that we would have never gotten to this point," Allen said. "Best-case scenario would have been the organization would have gotten something done (on an extension) a few years back. ... Well ya know what? That's not the case. And I understand it. ... I'm just happy I'm in a spot where both sides are honoring the contract."

Allen is slated to make more than $14.2 million in 2013 and continues to recover from surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder and a meniscus issue in his right knee. When the latter occurred, he said he was too stubborn to get it checked out and instead played through it. With the labrum injury, he had to alter his training regimen and didn't have full range of motion.

Fantasy Tip: Allen feels confident that health will help him rebound during his walk year. The 31-year-old could be a bargain in IDP leagues if your leaguemates discredit him based on last season.
