Jared Allen wants a ring, so the veteran and talented defensive end will be taking his services elsewhere.
Jason La Canfora is reporting that Allen has a list of about five teams that he’s considering, and the Vikings aren’t one of them.

Allen had 11.5 sacks last year for the Vikings, his sixth season in Minnesota.
He leads the NFL in sacks since entering the league in 2004 and has posted double-digit numbers for seven straight seasons and eight of his 10 in the league.
Allen is coming off the final season of a six-year, $73 million contract he signed when he was traded from Kansas City in 2007.
