The Broncos are looking for help on the defensive line. Denver is looking to acquire Vikings pass rusher Jared Allen, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt. The Broncos may have to rework some deals or ask Allen to take a pay cut in order to get him on the roster, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
The Vikings are currently 1-6 and are looking to add draft picks for the future of the team. Allen is scheduled to be a free agent this summer and the Vikings would only get a fifth-round compensatory pick if Allen were to sign elsewhere, according to Pro Football Talk. The Vikings are likely searching for a Day 2 pick in exchange for Allen.
The Broncos could certainly use an upgraded to Derek Wolfe at left end. Allen currently has 4.5 sacks on the season but is coming off a six-season stretch of 11 or more sacks. He is just two years removed from a 22-sack season.
