Jared Allen is apparently fed up with the spending habits of the incoming NFL rookies.
"Are you kidding me?" he said. "You haven’t played a down in the league yet and thousands and thousands of dollars on these kids arms and I’m like you guys understand you’re getting drafted into a lockout where you don’t know what rules you’re playing under or how much money you possibly might get.”
He also discussed how he was bothered by the rookies hugging NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on the stage.
"I honestly think it would’ve been cool to see all of the players elect to not show up," Allen said. "I think that would’ve given a really big sign to the NFL. You want us to appease you guys by coming to this show — because that’s what the NFL Draft is on TV, it’s a show for their fans and a show for the league — you want us to do that? Then let’s get this deal done, let’s quit locking us out, and let’s get back to work.”
