Herrera having high school jersey retired

Vikings guard Anthony Herrera will be the first player from his high school, Barron Collier, to have his jersey retired.

Herrera's jersey will be retired during the Vikings' bye weekend and he is expected to be in attendance. His jersey will be retired during a home game for the Cougars on Oct. 1.

Herrera wore jersey number 75 and went on to play at Tennessee before making the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2004. He has been a full-time starter since 2007.

Jared Allen adds to Favre's old-man image

Jared Allen loves to needle anyone that's nearby – players, coaches, media. It doesn't stop just because a player is a future Hall of Famer.

Allen joined the Zakk and Jack show on Fox Sports Radio to promote a cookbook, "The Quarterback Killer's Cookbook," and revealed this interesting nugget from his trip to Hattiesburg, Miss., to bring Brett Favre back to the Vikings.

"We went to look at (Favre's) property," Allen said, recalling that famous August evening when he was among three Vikings players to arrive at Favre's ranch. "When we came back, Brett was snoring."

As for the cookbook, that can be found on

"It's got some cool anecdotes about growing up and how hunting has kind of been a part of my life and how it's kind of shaped me to where I'm at," Allen said. "And it's got some killer recipes. I'm not going to lie, the food is delicious."
