22. Jared Allen
One of the most popular defensive players in recent Vikings history, Jared Allen would not just be a well liked player, he would become one of the elite Defensive Ends of his day.  

Allen was mostly known for his work with the Minnesota Vikings, but he began his career with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he played the first four years of his career.  In the last year of his run in KC, Allen led the NFL in Sacks (15), and Tackles for Loss (19), and was named to the First Team All-Pro for the first time.  The DE moved to Minnesota, where he was a First Team All-Pro three times in the six seasons he was there, and he would never not have a year where he had two digits worth of Sacks.  He earned his second Sack Title in 2011 with a career-high 22. 

He would finish his career with Chicago and Carolina and at the time of his retirement in 2015, he had 136.0 Sacks.
