We still don't know why Minnesota Vikings cornerback Asher Allen retired Thursday after only three seasons. We do know that the Vikings aren't going to go after Allen's money.
Rapoport: Something to Ponder
Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Thursday that the Vikings have decided not to seek a prorated portion of Allen's $725,000 rookie signing bonus. They could have possibly gone after $181,250.
Perhaps Minnesota's decision not to go after Allen's money is a sign they hope he will change his mind. They will hold his contractual rights if he ever decides to pull a Favre.
