Vikings Legend Jared Allen Signing Autographs In Minnesota | Video

Here is original video of former NFL defensive end Jared Allen signing autographs, Saturday afternoon, during an appearance at Fan HQ Sports Apparel and Collectibles, in the Twin Cities suburb of Minnetonka, Minnesota.

Allen was back in the place where he was easily the most popular defensive player in the team’s recent history, as well as one of the most revered players in the entire history of the Vikings. Allen’s penchant for sacking quarterbacks, along with his gregarious cowboy personality, really endeared him to fans.

Fans came in droves to get their hands on a Jared Allen autograph. 

Allen, an Idaho State alum, played on four teams, but absolutely had his best years with the Vikings. The future hall of famer started out with the Chiefs, before getting traded to Minnesota prior to the 2008 season. While in Minnesota (2008-2013), Allen made four Pro Bowls and was a three-time first team all-pro. In addition, the Northern California product helped the Vikings to three postseason appearances.

For his career, Allen finished with 643 tackles, 31 forced fumbles and 136 sacks, which is good for 11th all-time.

As a member of the Panthers, Allen finally got to play in a Super Bowl, which turned out to be the final game of his 13-year career, a 24-10 loss to the Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
