About Jared Allen

Jared Allen wreaked havoc on NFL quarterbacks for twelve seasons, playing with a level of passion and intensity few could match. Allen brings this same level of commitment and spirit to The Alliance as an investor and senior-level player relations executive, leaning on his professional football experience to help create and implement policies promoting the physical, mental and financial well-being of its players.

Allen is best known for his time with the Minnesota Vikings, where he was a five-time Pro Bowl DE and led the team to a conference championship berth. In 2012, he set the franchise record for sacks in a single season with 22, just a half sack short of the NFL record. Allen was named to the 50 Greatest Vikings list in 2010.

Allen began his NFL career in 2004 with the Kansas City Chiefs. He signed with the Vikings in 2008 and after six seasons in Minnesota, played two with the Bears before finishing his career with the Carolina Panthers, helping lead the team to Super Bowl 50 in his final season. After the 2015-16 season, he announced his retirement by posting a video of him riding his horse off into the sunset. In 2009, after returning home from a USO trip to US Military Bases in the Middle East, he founded Jared Allen’s Home for Wounded Warriors Foundation. The foundation aims to raise money to build homes for injured veterans.
