Minnesota Vikings DE Jared Allen said he believes that impending free-agent DE Ray Edwards deserves a new contract but is not sure if the Vikings will be willing to give Edwards what he will be looking for. "Is Ray deserving of a big contract? I think he's deserving of a contract," Allen said. "So management will do what they feel is best for the team and Ray will do what he feels is best for himself in his career. And then you go from there. That's just the business side of things. You got one shot to make as much money as you can to retire off of. You can't blame the guy for trying to get everything he's worth, especially if there's guys who are making more money for him."

If the Minnesota Vikings try to hold onto restricted free-agent DL Ray Edwards with a tender, he could focus on a prospective boxing career.

I'd rather do what I love doing. I love doing football as well. But if there's nobody that's going to trade for me, I will be definitely focusing on boxing."
