According to Jay Glazer of Fox, pass rusher Jared Allen has been traded to the Carolina Panthers from the Chicago Bears.

Allen has been with the Bears since he signed as a free agent after leaving the Minnesota Vikings.

He has never regained his once elite status that he had gained after many productive years with the Chiefs and Vikings since being in Chicago.

He now joins a Panthers team who really needs a pass rush after Greg Hardy has moved on to Dallas and the injury to Charles Johnson.
