At the age of eight, Jared Allen told his father he wanted to become a professional football player. And, in order to do so, his father, Ron, told him to eat, sleep and breathe football until he achieved his goal.
With a league-leading 15 ½ sacks in 2008, amounting to 43 total in his four short years in the NFL, it’s safe to say that Jared’s met his goal.
In the 2008 season, he also garnered 10 deflected passes, three forced fumbles and two offensive touchdowns.
To many, Jared is most recognizable for his profound statistics on the field. That’s why he was selected as a first-time 2008 pro-bowler, twice-picked by USA Today’s All Joe Team, and adorned one of the highest salaries ever for an NFL defensive player.
