According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen and Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib will likely test the free agent market this coming offseason.
With the midpoint of the season approaching, many veterans who have yet to discuss new deals with their existing clubs are highly unlikely to do so later this season. Vikings pass rusher Jared Allen and Patriots corner Aqib Talib are both having excellent seasons and are very likely to explore options on the open market this offseason, according to league sources.
As stingy as the Patriots have been in the past, they need to pay Talib. He’s truly been a shutdown corner for them.
Allen’s been having a pretty good season so far with 3.5 sacks.
