A video has been making the rounds lately that shows Jared Allen appearing to punch Falcons defensive end Ray Edwards in the crotch during a field goal attempt.

Allen was the Vikings long snapper that day after starter Cullen Loeffler got hurt. Florio had Allen on PFT Live Tuesday and got the explanation.

“Ray is obviously a former teammate and friend of mine. I told him before the snap that he’s known for blowing up the long snapper on the field goal,” Allen said.”

“So I told him: ‘You run me over here, I’m going to punch you square in your wiener, dude.’”

And so that’s exactly what Allen did. We’ll let Jared explain the rest below.
