SHARE Jared Allen retires, literally ‘rides off into sunset’

Jared Allen has decided to call it quits after 12 seasons.

The former Bears defensive end and lover of the outdoors retired only as he could—riding a horse off into the sunset.

Allen, 33, was a five-time Pro Bowler and made the all-Pro team four times. He spent a season and a half with the Bears before being traded to the Panthers, where he played in his first Super Bowl. Allen recorded one tackle in the 24-10 loss to the Broncos.

Will Allen’s rodeo partner, Charles “Peanut” Tillman, be next?
