As Jared Allen tests free agency, what are the chances he returns?

By akrammer@1500espn.com

During his final season under contract with the Minnesota Vikings, Jared Allen said he’d rather retire than become a rotational player.

As Allen, who turns 32 in April, tests free agency for the first time in his career, he’s set to face a stark reality that the NFL isn’t monetarily kind to defensive ends over the age of 30 — at least not the type of kindness he received without restructure in Minnesota.

So what’s the chance he finds a happy middle ground to stay?

The Vikings have a spotty history in paying out to keep their own players in house.
