The NFL trade deadline has come and gone and Jared Allen is still a Viking.
Some reports said the Seattle Seahawks were interested in Allen while others had the Denver Broncos pursuing him.
Allen, a defensive end, had a $17 million salary coming into the season.
He's a free agent at the end of the season and the Vikings can get a fifth-round pick as compensation if he signs elsewhere.
Meanwhile, the Vikings are preparing to take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. They are 1-6 for the season.
