EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen says he wants the NFL sack record more than ever after falling just one short of breaking the mark last season.

Allen reported to the team’s mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, the first time he’s worked out with the Vikings all offseason. He is coming off a 22-sack season, which is a half-sack short of Michael Strahan’s single-season record of 22.5.

Allen says that getting 22 sacks last season showed him that breaking the record was a real, attainable goal.

He did not participate in any of the Vikings’ optional workouts earlier this summer. He preferred instead to stick with the rigorous training regimen in Arizona that helped him have the best season of his career last year.
