Jared Allen defends former teammate Adrian Peterson’s character

Bears defensive end Jared Allen attended Bible study with Adrian Peterson during their six seasons as teammates with the Minnesota Vikings. He was reticent to judge his former teammate in light of Peterson’s indictment Sept. 12 on charges of child abuse, though he did support and defend Peterson’s character. ‘‘My focus is on the Chicago Bears, honestly, and what I’ve got to do in my life,’’ Allen said. ‘‘I’ve said it all along: I’ve got my...

Jared Allen on Adrian Peterson: 'Good people make mistakes'

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen said that while he doesn't know all the details concerning former Minnesota Vikings teammate Adrian Peterson's legal situation, he believes "good people make mistakes." Allen played alongside Peterson for six seasons in Minnesota before joining the Bears. "My focus is on the Chicago Bears, honestly, and what I've got to do with my life," Allen said when asked about Peterson. "I've said it all along: I have my beliefs and my opinions, and that's what they are, and I live my life a certain way.

Expect Jared Allen to bounce back vs. 49ers

Defensive end Jared Allen had a rather uneventful debut as a Bear. According to the scoresheet, he had one tackle in 53 snaps. And the coaches’ review didn’t do much to enhance his numbers, adding only one assisted tackle. But history suggests the Bears shouldn’t worry about their big offseason addition who received $15.5 million guaranteed. Plus, Allen, 32, feels like a teenager again. “I feel like I’m 18,” Allen said Wednesday at Halas Hall....

Jared Allen hopes to be old jeller for Bears

Lance Briggs wasn’t the only Bear to get special dispensation from coach Marc Trestman. Jared Allen only played 29 snaps in the preseason. “Coach took good care of me,” Allen said Wednesday after the Bears practiced at Halas Hall for the opener Sunday against the Bills at Soldier Field. “Obviously, I had some circumstances. My wife gave birth to our second daughter, and Coach didn’t feel it was necessary to have me come from a hospital bed to a playing...

ADAM L. JAHNS: Jared Allen is perched in a tree, a steel spear in hand. His every move is calculating. He’s quiet and calm with a bull elk in sight. And then, wham.

Jared Allen in his natural habitat as a leader

Jared Allen is perched in a tree, a steel spear in hand. His every move is calculating. He’s quiet and calm with a bull elk in sight. And then, wham. Allen puts the spear in the elk’s back, just behind its head and massive antlers. It gallops away, only to be found later, dead in the brush, the spear still implanted. The video of Allen’s famous hunt in 2009 can be found online. Just Google ‘‘Jared Allen,’’ ‘‘hunting’’ and ‘‘spear.’’...

Jared Allen sits with bruised shoulder

SEATTLE -- Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen will sit out the team’s third preseason game versus the Seattle Seahawks because of a bruised shoulder, the team announced. Allen missed the Bears preseason opener due to family reasons, but he did play last week when the Jacksonville Jaguars traveled to Soldier Field. With Allen, the Bears will likely start Willie Young at the defensive end spot opposite Lamarr Houston. In other news, recently signed wide receiver Santonio Holmes will make his Bears’ debut against the defending Super Bowl champions.
