Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen joined the show to explain why he chose the Windy City in free agency and more. Here are some of his takesL

— Allen explained why the Bears: “This wasn’t just a process of who is going to throw the most money at me and make a rash decision. I had a list of things that were important to me and a list of questions I wanted to ask the coaching staff. I wanted to be able to believe in the organization.”

— Allen said he did seriously consider the Seahawks, but Chicago snuck in at the last minute. ” The Bears thing happened last minute. It was a stealth move. I found out in the 5 in the morning that the deal was done.

— Allen explained that staying in the NFC North was big: “To be in the division I’ve been in for so many reasons … that’s part of the reason the Bears were such an attraction for me. I haven’t won in Chicago in six years of playing there. The fact that I’m playing the Vikings doesn’t have any bearing. There was no animosity.”

— Allen talked about his place on the all-time sack list and what it means for the Hall of Fame. ” I just keep crossing Hall of Famers off as I move up the list,” Allen said.

Mark HoeflingInteresting question posed on the @dpshow yesterday. Would you rather win one gold medal or multiple (say 3-4) silver? I say one gold.11 hours ago
