Allen: “Rookies Are Rookies”

Jared Allen is known for putting quarterbacks on their back, and he is salivating over a chance to make Detroit’s newest 1st round pick earn his giant paycheck… the hard way.

Allen is probably not a fan of quarterbacks in general, but he is making it clear that he is surely not a fan of rookies getting giant contracts when drafted at the top of the first round.  Allen thinks that players should have to earn their keep before cashing in big, especially when hard working veterans aren’t making that type of money.

Here is what Allen had to say about Stafford, “Rookies are rookies and you treat them like rookies. You throw the kitchen sink at them and hit them with a wrench along the way. No respect. He got millions of dollars. And for what? He ain’t done nothing yet.”

And from the sounds of it, Allen wants to ensure that Stafford continues to do nothing, especially during weeks two and ten.
