Former NFL star Jared Allen considers himself a Kansas Chiefs fan, yet hopes Tom Brady not only wins his seventh Super Bowl with his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but does something bold like strip off his uniform as he walks off the field. (Feb. 7)
JARED ALLEN: You know what. I kind of-- I hope-- like I, said I'm torn, because, you know, I root for the Chiefs just because they drafted me, and it's a great organization, and I love seeing them win, and they're a fun team to watch. But, you know, Tom Brady, to accomplish what he is accomplishing, I mean, we're literally watching history in motion right now, and I always root for greatness. I always root for that. So I would like to see him win seven. I literally hope he would just take-- just take all of his uniform off after he wins and just walk off, just be done. [LAUGHS]
When I teamed up with Volvo, as I hold-- tied for the record for most safeties in NFL history. So Volvo, having obviously a record of safety themselves, being known as one of the most safest vehicles on the road, we teamed up to promote their Safety Sunday giveaway.
For me, it's not much different. I always come home to watch the Super Bowl anyway, so you know, I have to go to it. I think it's going to be fun. I think the historical context of it is so cool, right? You got Brady doing something that's never been done before. And then you have what everybody arguably assumes is going to be the next Tom Brady. So I think the story lines are rich. I think the game should be good.
