Jared Allen is the NFL’s sack leader since he entered the league in 2004, and he has been as vocal as anyone in his opposition to coming out of the game. Allen says he understands the importance of keeping players healthy, but he’s adamant about the importance of establishing a rhythm as a pass rusher.
