Jared Allen signs with Bears

Jared Allen is staying in the NFC North. Allen, who made a name for himself with six exceptional years with the Minnesota Vikings, has signed a four-year contract with the rival Bears. Seeing Allen (who is 12th on the career sack list with 128.5) in a Bears uniform instead of Viking purple will probably be jarring for Vikings fans, but is he still a good enough defensive end to make a difference in the competitive NFC North?
