Vikings Legend Jared Allen no longer weathers the Minnesota winters, but he’s been plenty active on the ice nonetheless.

Allen, who officially retired from the gridiron in 2016, recently has gotten serious about the sport of curling and is gaining quite the following.

Allen took to the ice again this week, joining Team Persinger/Ruohonen as an alternate for the 2019 USA Curling National Championships in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

It is cool that Jared is promoting curling. Hopefully he sticks with it.

Curling is the perfect sport for Jared.  When he makes a big play like he did in the NFL, he will already be down in the proper position.  :D

Hall of Famer Paul Krause has a place in the record books that may be permanent. Krause, now 77, has 81 career interceptions. He’s held the record for 40 years. The closest contender since then has been Hall of Famer Rod Woodson, who finished his career with 71.

The current active leader is Reggie Nelson, who is tied for 91st on the all-time list with 38. The only other active player in the all-time top 250 is Richard Sherman with 32.

So Krause’s record may never be broken.

The Jaguars signed kicker Josh Lambo to a four-year extension last week, a deal that included $6.5 million guaranteed. With Lambo signed long term, the Jaguars don’t need another kicker. Thus, Jacksonville cut Kai Forbath, the team announced Tuesday.

Forbath, 31, appeared in three games for the Jaguars in 2018 when Lambo was injured. He converted 4 of 5 field goals and all three extra point attempts. In seven seasons, Forbath has played for four teams. He has made 85.7 percent of his career field goal attempts and 94 percent of his extra points.

With the NFL running offended schemes that help QBs tremendously, and the fact that the NFL caters to the offensive side of the ball, I took think there is a good chance Paul Krause holds that record permanently.

There's less than 1/2 of 1% that it gets broken.  I'll never say never, but that's one that likely will stand the test of time.

There's an absolutely fantastic story about Denny in the Athletic, if you get the opportunity and have a subscription.  I'm certainly not going to go into all the details since it's a paid site, but I will tell you that it does portray the positive aspects of Denny and especially his impact on Robert Griffith and Andre Patterson.
