It didn’t take long for Jared Allen to introduce himself to #1 draft pick Matt Kalil. First day of minicamp. Jared thinks to himself “Let’s take this rookie to school.” The tweet report from Jeremy Fowler:
Though not much contact today, Jared Allen made his presence felt on at least one play. Swiftly skirted by Matt Kalil on a rush wide.

Okay it’s only a minicamp drill and nothing to get hysterical about. Besides, stuff like this is good for Matt. Trial by fire and all that. He can only get better by going up against Jared Allen every day in practice. Unless he’s kind of weak psychologically. Then Jared will probably destroy him.
Just kidding. Kalil will be great. Day one of minicamp. Perspective.
