Jared Allen Holds NFL Streak

Jared Allen barely left the field when he played for the Minnesota Vikings … that’s why he has the longest active streak in the NFL for consecutive games started by a defensive end.

Chicago’s plan for the 32 year old also includes starting every game, but not playing every snap. In 2013, Allen started every single game for the Vikings as indicated, but he was also ranked 3rd for total number snaps for a defensive end at 1,083. Julius Peppers only played 865 snaps in 2013 which ranked him 13th.

In addition, Pro Football Focus ranked Jared Allen as the 35th best 4-3 defensive end in 2013, Peppers was ranked 40th.

Here are the top 35 defensive ends (4-3) from 2013:

1  Robert Quinn
2  Greg Hardy
3  Cameron Wake
4  Michael D. Johnson
5  Michael Bennett
6  Rob Ninkovich

(according to Pro Football Focus)

Allen joins a group of athletes on the Chicago Bears defensive line, headlined by newcomer Lamarr Houston. Allen should get a chance to rest a bit more because Chicago will have the depth to rotate, unlike Minnesota.
