EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The NFL trade deadline has passed, and Jared Allen is still with the Minnesota Vikings.

High-profile players with huge contracts are rarely dealt in this league, so the likelihood of him switching teams was slim. Still, he'll be a free agent after the season. The Vikings are 1-6 and on track for another rebuilding project. Salary cap aside, there were sensible reasons for a trade.

But Allen said Wednesday he wasn't bothered by his name being bandied about. He said he took that as a "sign of respect" that he still has value, as a four-time first-team All-Pro defensive end. Allen has 4 1/2 sacks this season.
