04:49 PM ET 10.27 | It looks like Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen may be one of the biggest players to potentially move at the NFL trade deadline. According to reports the Vikings will likely attempt to trade Allen prior to Tuesday's NFL trade deadline, and the Dallas Cowboys or Denver Broncos may be one of many teams to inquire about his services. The catch, however, is that the team is looking for at least a third-round pick in exchange for Allen.

May as well and rebuild everything.

50 would say it better, but if/when Allen leaves via free agency, chances are the Vikes would get a third-rounder. That 3rd rounder isn't guaranteed, but the Vikes won't move him without a 3rd, at least.

Personally, I don't see Spielman moving him.

Just perused the Minneapolis area newspaper sites and sports blogs.

Leslie Frazier is as popular as a small pox epidemic, with GM Rick Spielman close behind.

Too bad. I like Frazier, who seems like a great guy.

But Spielman can get tea-bagged by brahma bull for all I care.

I've been saying this for 2-3 weeks. AP, too. And fire the coaches and FO. Seriously.

They have to keep AP to sell tickets. Nobody will come to games with Toby "fumblaya, fumbleruski" Gerhart starting at RB.

I can see Allen traded. Last year of the contract and he's no spring chicken. But nothing less than a 2nd rounder. And I like him a bunch, too. It seems Frazier helped turn his life around. Unfortunately, being a better citizen is nice, but it doesn't sack the QB.

AD, Walsh, Patterson, Robison, Greenway, Harrison Smith, Sullivan, and Kalil are safe.

The rest are trade bait, or unemployed in the near future.

It's pathetic.

I'll add Kyle Rudolph to the "keep" side.

Everyone else (especially LB Erin Henderson and CB Chris Cook) can be traded for a used condom from a goat farmer.

I know Denver needs D improvement, and Allen would provide that, but they're pretty heavily leveraged. I don't know that it would be worth it to go deeper in debt. They have an offense that can deliver a big number. Thru 8 games, they are averaging 42.8 points per game. Not many teams playing another NFL team can score more than 40 points let alone average that number. Dallas did, though. I think Elway will stick with working on the defense with what he has and continuing to hope that high octane will win out.

Broncos had a top 5 defense last season before losing both their star pass rushers. Von Miller is back but Elvis is gone gone. Chances are the pressure Jared Allen can bring would buy a Super Bowl for Manning. Make it happen.

Jerome Felton is another keeper.
