In an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio, the veteran defensive end said he wants to sign with a “good organization” that gives him a “chance to win” and a “fair contract.”
FA DE @JaredAllen69: I think for my next team it will come down to a chance to win, a good organization, as well as getting a fair contract.

Rotoworld lists the Broncos, Seahawks, Buccaneers and Raiders as potential landing spots for Allen, who turns 32 next month.
Denver and Seattle explored a trade for Allen last season, and both clubs certainly fit his criteria. The Bucs make sense because of his familiarity with defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, but likely aren’t Super Bowl contenders. Oakland, in excellent salary cap shape, has money to blow and … that’s about it.
Following six stellar seasons with the Vikings, Allen knows this could be his last time to get paid and play for a winner. He’s still a premier pass-rusher (11.5 sacks in 2013), hasn’t missed a game since 2007, and is a good locker room presence, so he won’t be short on suitors.
