Jared Allen's Offseason

A lot of people have been asking me what Jared Allen is up too so far this offseason.  I thought I’d give a quick update.

Immediately after the Minnesota Vikings loss to the Eagles on Wild Card Weekend, JA went north, up to Lake of the Woods, Ontario, where he participated in a small ice fishing derby. Although he did not win, he did catch a two walleye, 4 small mouth bass, and a shark, which is quite rare for those parts.  He slept in quinsy, made of packed snow, and only ate pickles from a jar the entire time he was there.

Since then, Jared Allen has been spending his time in Los Angeles, California, pursuing his dream of acting in film and television.  In the past few weeks, JA has starred as Jake’s teacher, in Two and a Half Men, the cool new student in the CW’s , 90210,  had a guest hosting role on ABC’s, The View, and auditioned for the part of Cordell “Cord” Walker’s sidekick, James “Jimmy” Trivette, for the remake of Walker Texas Ranger.


  1. Smallmouth and Walleye... doesn't he usually catch Large Pike and Muskie by the face with his bare hands? Look into your "fun facts"

  2. I like the face... quite funny. I'll remember that for the next time JA goes fishing
