Is Chicago Bears DE Jared Allen the next big name NFLer to take a pay cut?

After leading his team to a third-consecutive AFC West title, a 12-4 record and the No. 2 seed in the conference, Peyton Manning was asked to take a pay cut; that’s a huge piece of humble pie for a quarterback who is 38-10 since taking over in Denver.
